Thank you in advance to whoever chimes in to assist me in clearing up the following problems. Your time and assistance are much appreciated! If I could take you out for a beer, I would!


In downloading a music file earlier this week, I contracted a nasty virus and/or malware. First, I received numerous pop-ups from "Antivirus Plus." Second, my Anti-virus program (Symantec) spotted a Trojon.Vundo virus.

I first approached the situation by following all steps posted on the forum for removing "Antivirus Plus," available here:

Bleepingcomputer.com - Remove Antivirus Plus

While the Antivirus Plus malware has seemingly disappeared, numerous problems remain, which I believe are the result of either the Vundo or another virus. I thought my Symantec had taken care of it, but perhaps not . . .


Since my computer has started acting funny, I've noted several key symptoms. I'm sure there are more that I do not know about yet, but as my computer has generally degenerated in functionality, I've noted the following:

1. I cannot access GMail at all. When I attempt to open it in Firefox, I receive the following message:

Not Found

The requested URL /accounts/ServiceLogin was not found on this server.
Apache/2.2.3 (Red Hat) Server at www.google.com Po

2. I cannot log into the secure network at my work place to use the wireless. Nor am I able to search for nearby wireless signals, as my Intel PROset/Wireless program will not open.

3. iTunes will not play music. When I try to open iTunes, I receive the following message: "iTunes has detected a problem with your audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate properly."

4. I've received several System32 error messages.

5. I've received numerous Messages along the lines of the following: "The instruction at '0x0162f7a0' referenced memory at '0x0162f7a0'. The memory could not be 'written'."

6. When I attempt to open certain websites, particularly off of Google searches, I am immediately re-directed to advertising/spam-type sites at different URLs.

I have provided the DDS and RootRepeal logs below, as well as two versions of the DDS "Attach" file - one from earlier this week, when I first noted the problem, and one from today. The earlier one is labeled "Attch-1" and today's version is labeled "Attach-2." I did so because I thought it would be helpful to capture some of the earlier "Event Viewer" history that may have disappeared as the week wore on.
