Attempted to remove the trojan using some online tutorials. When I attempted to rename the .dll that had been identified as being with the Vundo trojan (based on search for files and date and time the new dll's are listed in Windows\sytem32 directory all but 3 files would let me rename them to delete them. Attempted to enter REGEDIT to remove registry line items but the system tells me that regedit has been locked by the Administrator. I entered in SAFE mode and logged on as Administrator and still received the same error message. I can not enter the regedit function.
I am about at my wits end on this, so last night I satrated to copy all personal data that I had on the C/D drives (split partition drive) looking at having to do a restore of my OS. Real issue here for me is I have several programs intalled that were online downloads so trying to get them restored will be a bit tough (all legit programs I paid for). any other suggestions I could try befor having to go to a complete wipe and restore of my Vaio recovery disks? I will be loading SP 1,2&3 again along with every conceivable patch, update ... its gonna take days! If that is my only real option, then I guess I just ahve to bite the bullet and do it. fortunately I was able to get into the system to at least be able to copy the files to an external HDD.
I keep seeing stuff about Hijack This Logs, and some other software logs etc. I have no clue on these sorts of programs so I will need a little "hand-holding" if these need to be installed and run. Thanks again
