Yesterday when searching google (don't remember what I was searching), I got to a website that immediately acted like it was scanning my computer, had fake popup bubbles in lower right hand corner to look like they were from my computer. It said Virus Removal (or remover, don't rember) 2008. It probably went for 3-5 seconds before I closed the IE7 browser window I was in.

After opening IE7 again, I had a new toolbar. I usually have a google toolbar for searching, but it had been replaced with a new toolbar. (I didn't write it down - think it started with the letter A and was probably four or five letters long.) The new toolbar also had items that 'scrolled' instead of my non-moving toolbar.

I used remove hardware to remove the new toolbar.

I researched VirusRemover2008 (VR8) a little, but didn't find it in the processes tab of the task manager and couldn't find the files I was supposed to delete. A bubble came up in the lower right telling me that there was unusual traffic with my email (again, don't remember the exact words), but I was afraid to click on it because it might be the VR8. Now I think that it was probably a legitimate bubble from microsoft.

Now I have seen the blue screen with DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error message a few times only minutes after booting up. I'm able to start in safe mode, but even then was shut down with a NT Authority/System message. I haven't turned it back on.

Let's try Safemode w/networking
-------------------------

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.

I did the Quick Scan again after the full scan (listed above).

Yee Haw - It's clean right now? I've seen in other posts that the Vundo trojan can be hard to remove. Is there something else that I should do now?

My husband will bring home a mcafee virus protection from work. He had cleaned my drive, but hadn't put it back on. Thank you so much for your time. This site helped me to not panic. I could see that everyone got individualized, clear instructions. Thank you so much for volunteering!

(Family is home and I'm working on dinner - I'll check back in tomorrow.)

I ran the ATF Cleaner and was running the SAS Complete Scan. I now have the blue screen, 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERROR. blah blah blah. Stop: 0x00000077 (0xC000009C, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00249000)' SAS had already found 11 infections:rogue.component/trace, rogue.?????, adware/tracking cookie - from memory, I didn't have them written down.

Next?

I had no idea what that error message meant, so I found this: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/228753 to read. "0xC000009C, or STATUS_DEVICE_DATA_ERROR: bad blocks on the hard disk." and "Boot sector virus. To determine if you have a boot sector virus, run a current virus-checking program, and if needed, disinfect your computer." Plus instructions if it is not a boot sector virus. I read about kernels here: http://www.linfo.org/kernel.html

I had decided to restart and scan again, but I guess I'll wait for instruction. How about: http://vundofix.atribune.org/ ?

and save it to your desktop.

2. Now reboot into Safe Mode.

3. Select safe mode with networking using your arrow keys on the keyboard and then press enter.

4. When you computer reaches the desktop make sure you log in as the same user which you had performed the previous steps,

3. Once you are logged into safe mode, double-click VirtumundoBeGone.exe file you just downloaded and follow the instructions.

4. Exit when it has finished, and reboot back to normal mode.

The WinFixer and Vundo infection should now be removed from your computer. Conclusion

THANK YOU!

I didn't have the self-discipline to quit researching, so I decided to do another scan.

SAS QuickScan where I checked both 'Use Kernel Direct File Access' and 'Use Kernel Direct Registry Access' under 'Scanning Control'.

Then I did another MBAM for fun and it was clean. So I ran another SAS - Complete Scan and unchecked the two 'Kernel' options under 'Scanning Control':

Then I saw your next post and ran VundoFix and it found nothing!! Yee Haw. I've updated my Java and will be more vigilant (husband bringing home an anitvirus program, maybe McAfee). But I think I'll run MBAM and/or SAS on occasion to double check. Thanks again, garmanma! Your time is greatly appreciated.
