Hi everyone,

Well, it appears that my PC has acquired quite a nasty virus. Brief history: my wife tells me that she clicked in a popup in IE8 that said McAfee virusscan had found a problem. Of course, this was malware masquerading as McAfee and she soon ended up with an explosion of popup windows and a huge slowdown in network speed. I checked Windows Defender and found that it had been disabled. (Uh oh.) Then I opne my virus software (Trend Micro Office Scan) and perform a system scan; the report says it has detected Cryp_FakeAV-17 and deleted the file C:\windows\system32\pimimoso.exe. Of course, there were still problems. (Oh crap.) I then proceeded to download and run Spybot Search and Destroy. This identified my problem as the Vundo trojan and was able to fix most problems except one (I think a regsitry entry or a dll -- I apologize, I was not taking very good notes at this point and was unable to find a nice summary in the logs). It advised me to reboot and then allow Spybot to start scanning on reboot. I followed the instructions, but Spybot still could not completely remove the virus. I then proceeded to download and run Malwarebytes. It identified a Registy value as infected and was "supposedly" able to successfully remove the problem: (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\nedepesat (Trojan.Vundo.H) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.) When I ran a subsequent scan of Spybot on reboot, it did not find any instances of Vundo or Virtumonde. However, when I started IE8 to make sure that I had all the latest Windows updates, the problem began anew. I tried a few other things to fix the problem: ran Windows Updates and ensured everything was up-to-date; updated my Java plugin to the latest version; and deleted all temporary internet files for all users. Reran both Spybot and Malwarebytes, but still get this malware/virus creeping back. I know things are going downhill when I see on of the following:
- upon reboot, I get an error message saying that C:\windows\system32\repudana.dll could not be found/loaded.
- I end up with a random process tied to an .exe file in c:\widows\temp. The name of this file constantly changes (eg: TF4FB5.exe, ) and, if I terminate the process, the .exe file dissappears. The icon for the .exe file is a dog. I couldn't find any of these random process names in a process library search and SpyBot's process viewer cannot identify the associated company. (Neither can Windows Defender's Software Explorer.)

Below is the DDS report as suggested in the Prep Guide. I have also attached the "Attach.txt" report from that program as well as the "ark.txt" report from RootRepeal. I would appreciate any help or advice members of the community could offer. I would prefer not to completely wipe the hard-disks and do a complete reinstall for two reasons:
(a) this PC came with Vista and I rolled back to XP so that my wife could use Citrix for her work and so we wouldn't lose a bunch of software. It was not easy to find all the drivers and I foolishly did not make a comprehensive list of all the drivers that did work. Sigh.
(:( feel like this stupid virus would win if I am forced to "nuke" the system.

Best regards,

Hello everyone,

Time was a limiting factor for me, so I ended up wiping out my C: partition and reinstalling Windows XP. Thanks to those who took a look at my post.

Best regards,
