My computer recently got infected with the Vundo virus and some sort of Browser redirect.. and maybe some sort of backdoor thing (according to my virus scanner).
I think i've alleviated some of the problems but cannot be sure what i've sorted in all honesty. My virus scanner no longer picks up the vundo virus so perhaps I got rid of that. My main concern is if I have a keylogger as I think something is going on in the background due to slow internet speeds at times.
I still have google links redirecting me and its now redirecting other search engines as well. I'm also getting the random popups.
My question is, would it be easier to just format my computer? The problem with this is I would need to backup a lot of my data.. i've already transferred a lot of it to my other harddrive (its a slave drive in my computer) but will this have the virus on it as well? So even if I format by plugging in my slave drive will it just bring the problem back.
I can put up with the redirects for a bit but i'm most worried about the backdoor/keylogging part.
Any advice on what you think is the best way forward would be most appreciated!
edit: I just looked up the virus's on Avira and it has detected TR/Crypt.ZPACK.Gen and I remember AVG picking up the Vundo one and clearing it.
