I have used the following tools in an attempt to remove a Vundo virus:
  • Spybot Search & Destroy
  • HijackThis
  • Malwarebytes
  • Microsoft Anti-malware Tool (called OneCare?)
  • VundoFix
  • VirtumundoBeGone
The above order is the order in which I ran the tools. The Microsoft tool aborted with a generic error. I did not attempt it again.

Spybot was unable to remove all of the files. HijackThis removed them, but they reappeared. Malwarebytes, VundoFix and VirtumundoBeGone indicated the virus has been cleaned.

I attempted to delete "AppInit_DLLs: c:\windows\system32\falukovo.dll" in the registry, but it reappeared.

I also attempted to run ComboFix, but I was unable to stop ZoneAlarm from running in the background. So I installed the software, but I did not run it.

Hello Lady Macbeth,

I attempted to delete "AppInit_DLLs: c:\windows\system32\falukovo.dll" in the registry, but it reappeared.

It is a bad idea to try to fix this yourself. :thumbup2: Unless you understand the registry, you can make matters so bad that your computer will not boot.

I also attempted to run ComboFix, but I was unable to stop ZoneAlarm from running in the background. So I installed the software, but I did not run it


You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.
 It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an Malware Removal Expert, not for private use.

Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
Please read  Combofix's Disclaimer.

Time to use a different tool.

Before running a new scan let's clean out the temporary folders.

Download ATF Cleaner to your Desktop.
  • Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
  • Click Select All found at the bottom of the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browser, do this also:
  • Click Firefox at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browser, do this also:
  • Click Opera at the top and choose Select All from the list.
  • Close ALL Internet browsers (very important).
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • NOTE : If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

Now download OTScanIt.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named OTScanIt2 on your desktop.

Note: You must be logged on to the system with an account that has Administrator privileges to run this program.
  • Open the OTScanIt2 folder and double-click on OTScanIt2.exe to start the program (if you are running on Vista then right-click the program and choose Run as Administrator).
  • Change the File Age to 90 days.
  • In the Root Kit Search section click on Yes.
  • Under Additional Scans click the EXTRAS button
  • Do not change any other settings.
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.
  • Save the file to your desktop or other location where you can find it back.
  • Submit file sample
  • Open to the Submission Channel.
  • Under Link to topic where this file was requested, input:
  • Click Browse and select the OTScanIT2 log
  • Under the comments section, say that SifuMike asked for the submission.
  • Then select Send File to send it
  • After that you should get a confirmation if it was uploaded successfully.
