Hi everyone, this is my first post, thanks for reading.

My new HP laptop runs Windows XP 32 bit. I have repeatedly contracted virtumonde and vundo in the past 6 months, and in past episodes I have used the factory-system restore CD to reset my hard drive and system settings, thereby erasing the virus.

But earlier this week, I ended up with Vundo again. I have used Avira, Spybot, and Malwarebytes, but as I've learned through experience, they delete instances of vundo, but do not remove the root cause. Malwarebytes pulls up 7 files on each run, each named Trojan.Vundo.H or Trojan.Vundo.BOH or Trojan.Vundo

This episode seems to be more complicated than earlier occasions. After performing a full restore, and before reloading software onto my machine, I plugged in my external hard drive - then Vundo infected my system again. It is completely impossible for me to reformat my external hard drive, as I have legally binding and career crucial documents on the external hard drive. I have run those programs on the external hard drive as well, and it does discover Malware files.

If it might help, I have a mac computer as well, so if there is any way to run an antivirus program from the mac to clean the external hard drive, I can do that.

Any help you can offer would be astoundingly appreciated. Best, Bill


With the external unplugged, I just ran HijackThis, pasted below.
I also ran Malwarebytes, and have pasted that log below as well

Hello.

Re-run scan with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware

Your MBAM log shows "No action taken". This usually occurs if you forget to click "Remove Selected" and instead only clicked "Save Logfile. Please read this thread and rescan again only using the (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. After performing the new scan, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Post back with a new DDS logs as well.

With Regards,
Extremeboy
