Hi. My computer is running Windows XP, I use AVG (free), just upgraded to v9 on 10/26/09. I also use Ad-Aware. Around Oct 25 I started seeing pop-up ads while browsing in Firefox. I ran AVG, full scan, and it detected some malware -- Vundo.IG and SHeur2.BODT. However, it didn't seem to clean it completely.

I downloaded the AVG upgrade, re-ran full scan, updated my Ad-Aware, ran that as well. AVG detects Vundo, but then it requires me to reboot the computer, and AVG just detects it again and starts the cycle over.

I get an error now whenever I restart the computer. (Windows can't find logon.exe). Also, there is an error titled RUNDLL. Message states: Error loading c:\windows\system32\vafiyene.dll. The specified module could not be found. OK.

Now when I try to open FireFox it either won't open, or else it closes out and then Internet Explorer launches with ads.

I also tried to download and run the Windows spyware removal tool, but my automatic windows updates setting keeps reverting to disabled, so i can't run that.

I share my computer with my daughter, and the only thing she could think of is that she had just downloaded the latest iTunes and Quicktime update. Can't think of anything else unusual just prior to infection.

I appreciate any ideas you can offer for cleaning this mess off of my PC. Thanks in advance for your help.

Please download and run Process Explorer

Run it and find vafiyene.dll. Right-click on it and select Kill Process

Here is the first file you requested -- it seemed to fail though. I have administrator privileges, so I'm not sure why it would not run:
Running from: C:\Documents and Settings\anna\Desktop\Win32kDiag.exe

Log file at : C:\Documents and Settings\anna\Desktop\Win32kDiag.txt

WARNING: Could not get backup privileges!

Now that you were successful in creating those logs you need to post them in our HJT forum There they will help you with the removal through some custom scripts and programs that we cannot run here in this forum

First, try to run a DDS / HJT log as outlined in our preparation guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If it won't run, don't worry, just give a brief description and tell them that these logs were all you could get to run successfully

Post them here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck
