Hi there,

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.

Friends -- I ran Malwarebytes anti-Malware and that seemed to fix the problem. How crazy is it that NIS 2009 couldn't handle this virus?

Thanks for reading this post. This issue seems to be closed for now. Let's hope!

Happy Holidays!
