I ran Spybot Search & Destroy and it found VBouncer, but it couldn't remove it because it said it was in use and asked to remove it at restart. I restarted the computer and it scanned with Spybot, but it still said that it couldn't remove it. I searched for VBouncer on my computer and found 2 entries, both of them were in the Spybot Search & Destroy folder. I deleted them and ran Ad-Aware, Spysweeper, Norton AV and Spybot Search & Destroy scans. Spybot Search & Destroy again found it and couldn't remove it. Does anyone know how to remove VBouncer, or do you think it could be a false positive?

Thanks in advance for the help,

Sorry to seem so ignorant, but I really didn't understand how to remove the vbouncer from the instructions on this site. Could someone please enlighten me. (step by step)

Uninstall "Virtual Bouncer" using the Add/Remove Programs utility in your control panel.

Then delete the vurtual bouncer directories.

They also have an uninstaller here http://www.spywarelabs.com/support.html

Vbouncer didn't show up in my Add/Remove list, and I couldn't find it's directories.

When I searched for it (Vbouncer) I tracked the file to Windows\Temp\GLFD333.tmp. I deleted that file and when I again searched for Vbouncer it was still showing as a zip file in the Spybot Search & Destroy/Recovery. I purged it from Spybot Search & Destroy recovery and ran Spybot again. This time it came up without Vbouncer, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Thanks for your input,

Mary

Just my two cents on searching for new baddies that have invaded. With WIN XP search it is possible to show all files entered or modified BY DATE. This something I don't believe WIN 9* had (or I didn't know it) I have been using this quite a bit in the war on on Invaders (trojans et al.)
