Vundo Keeps coming back

OS:Windows XP, SP3

Hi,
I was forwarded from "http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/203107/after-windows-update-multiple-program-errors-pc-restarting-on-its-own/" to post here.... That thread kinda died... anyway...

Over the past month I've found multiple instances of Vundo, and things seem to be getting worse.
Every time I try to clean my system, Vundo keeps coming back - even if I dont do any browsing.
Most recently, i've been experiencing applications freezing (Firefox, McAfee, Warcraft3)
The system has also crashed mid-scan using McAfee several times, but not lately.
I'm unsure if these problems are related to the Virus or other system issues - I figure get rid of the virus first and troubleshoot the rest later.


My system is fairly new (Dec 08), it came with McAfee Enterprise installed. I also installed the free version of Spyware Doctor on my computer.
Neither of which seem to be able to remove the Virus, and at times can not even detect it.

I've started to notice that sometimes McAfee is disabled after restarting the computer; I hadn't changed any settings for that to occur.

I've tried using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware as well as SUPER Anti-Spyware, both of which are doing a better job of finding and clearing traces of the virus (compared to McAfee). Also tried VirtumundoBeGone and in haste, ComboFix.

VirtumundoBeGone found no traces, and Combofix didnt do anything noticable.

Please help!
Let me know if there are any logs or reports you need me to post!

Well the best we can do is get an MBAM and perhaps a SUPER Anti-Spyware log to start with.

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

This is the most recent MBAM scan log.
There is only once instance detected, usually there are more, closer to 15. I will also include the Super Antispyware log in another post
