I recently got a vundo, and i got most of and i think all of it gone.
My computer has been laggy, and slower than usual recently.
I can't use Internet Explorer because it refreshes really fast and it makes my desktop icons flicker.
Malwarebytes helped find the vundo.
I don't know what to do, and i'm very frustrated.
I have highjackthis if that would help, i'll post that if someone says it would help.
Also, I'm not that good with computers.
I've had this PC for like a long time, and have used it, but ..........i'm no good with things. i'm sorry.and thank you for all of your time.

I found a Disabled.SecurityCenter, and when i try to remove it, my computer restarts, and THEN, i think it's a rogue antivirus installer, an automatic update tries to install itself when windows shuts down., so i hafta like hold down the button=._.=
i'm really scared.
i mean it says it's supposed to restart when removing it, and i tried removing it earlier, and it restarted, and thats hwo i saw the installing thing.
but it came back!

Ok, lets try a different approach:

Please run ATF and SAS:
Credits to Boopme

Note.. SAS doesn't open the registry hives for other user accounts on the system, so scans should be done from each user account.

Note 2: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware, Free Home Edition

Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opera browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
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 Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.

I think i got rid of it, and the rogue antivirus with Spybot Search and Destroy.
I'll have to see if it comes back in a few days though.
