I've got a couple of computers sitting in front of me which have both been infected (and I think cleaned) of Vundo variants. HOWEVER, now what is happening, when I get to the welcome screen to logon, I can see that my 'settings are being saved' and then I see 'logging off' and I'm back at the welcome screen.

I cannot log on, even in safe mode, with the administrator or local user, with or without an account having a password.

On one of the systems I can still logon to one account if I go into safe mode, and have even created a new, no password acct with admin privileges and still can't seem to logon properly.

Any ideas? any help?

Thanks

Yes, and I did a complete repair install and got in on one, but the other still did not work. However, it turns out a file (userinit maybe) had been deleted during virus cleanup and I was able to restore and now have access. Interesting that the userinit file was not fixed or replaced during the repair. But it's all working now, thanks.

Great! Do you still feel you are infected?
