According to my spyware scan:

Virtumonde K
Virtumonde BY
Vundo BKK
Spyware Guard 2008

I try deleting them and they keep coming back, sometimes wit something called Fake Alert.

I've tried running Mcafee scans, but it only picks up Spyware Guard. I've used Mcafee shredder to delete Spyware guard, but it keeps coming back. Please help!

Edit: Also, I'm running Windows XP.

Use the two programs below to find and remove the malware.
Be sure to update the programs in regular mode and then boot into safe mode to run the scans.

Super Antispyware:

MalwareBytes Antimalware:

Use Ccleaner to remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. before running the two scans above. During install
you will be offered the Yahoo Toolbar. UNcheck if not wanted. http://www.ccleaner.com/

Scan your computer with Secunia online scanner for missing security updates for all of your programs. IE Explorer, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader, and Java have recently been exploited and updates will prevent that.
After updating Java be sure to go to the Add/Remove program and remove ALL old Java programs.

Hello UpsetVirusVictim,

I see that you now have a HiJack This log posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/188322/help-me-make-sure-im-totally-clean/ Because you have this log posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
