I'm running WinXPsp3 on a Dell XPS M1210, cable modem. I should have known better, but I clicked on a Windows Media file and blam, my brand-new Norton Internet Security 2009 program started telling me it was blocking Trojan.Vundo -- but I can tell the infection actually made it to my computer. My Automatic Updates are disabled, and IE 7 starts throwing all types of crazy pop ups advertising various anti-spyware products which are, of course, malware themselves.
I ran a full scan with NIS 2009 three times, but it said my computer is clean. Then I downloaded Symantec's FixVundo tool but it couldn't detect Vundo. I also checked my history in NIS 2009 and it's clearly still dealing with the trojan -- there are security reports from hours later saying that it's blocking the trojan -- my guess is that the NIS 2009 firewall is partially blocking the trojan.
I recently had a nasty virus and spent quite a long time reinstalling my OS and drivers and applications. Any help is much appreciated.
