I recently went through a big infection of vundo.

So what is happening now is that I'll be watching a movie, not using the computer for anything. Then I'll start hearing the windows chime, the same one it uses for crashes or deleting a file that's in use, for example. But no message anywhere, just the tone. Then the computer BSODs, but there's no file listed, just a stop error and an address, "STOP 0x000000F4", then a group of similar number strings in parentheses.

When the computer reboots, my wallpaper has been replaced with a big YOUR COMPUTER IS INFECTED WITH SPYWARE, an alert going off over and over in the taskbar, and popup window telling me to purchase win protector or something like that.

Of course the virii won't allow me to run MalwareBytes or HJT. So I reboot into safe mode, run MBAM, and remove the files included in the attached log.

Problem is, this keeps happening. Something is reinfecting me, and MBAM and Avast aren't detecting it.

What should I do?

Thank you for reading, I'm getting a little desperate.

Part of the way I can tell that the virus is going to BSOD is that a process appears in task manager that is always a string of numbers .exe, for example 1562363434.exe. Don't know if that is helpful information or not, but something is generating an .exe and running it.

Hello evenhand,

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

Ah, I apologize. Is there some way I could delete this reply and return to 0 replies?
