HI Guys
And a big thanks for your help, here is my problem
Not sure if my post should be here or in the HJ forum
My Toshiba lap top running windows XP, has a bug of some sort, I have tried to remove it with some of your programs. Most of it is gone, but there is still something in my system.
I first used rkill to stop the proccess that where running. I then used Combo Fix, Malwarebites, Spy Doctor, Vundo Remover and my anti virus, AVG Free.
This is the error messages I get now, I have two boxes that come up on my screen.
One is my resdent sheild alert

Threat Detected
File Name
C:\Documents and Settings\ Ben\Local Settings\Temp\Windows-Update-KB237643-x86-ENU.exe
Threat Name
Trojan horse Vundo.IW

Then I also have this other box in the back ground that basicly says
C:Docume-1\Ben\ Bla Bla Bla

Big Red X Then it says
Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

Now my anti virus says I have a Vundo Virus, But Vundo Fix says I don't. When I do a virus scan and AVG shows the virus and it says I have heaked it, it still keeps coming back.
I took a picture of my screen, but I don't know how too attach it her, when I click on the insert pic icon, it ask's Please enter URL for this image????
