I think I have or had the vundo virus. So I got IOBit which I thought removed the virus, but I do not think it did because I found myself having to run it everyday. Well, I am suppose to go on vacation in a couple of days, but I desperately need my laptop. I have all the log files from the IOBit, if needed.

The problem is now I cannot run essesntial EXE. Word, Internet, Adobe, etc. Strange there are some EXE that I can run like Wordperfect (I guess because who uses that!!!) I am able to run the TEMP cleaner that I saw posted here, but nothing else. Rkill, malwarebytes, etc . . .

I tried change the names. It did not work. I did notice strange .dll in my registry. And when I run the temp cleaner is get error saying that there are corrupt files in temporary files for contentIE. They are hidden files that I cannot unhide and cannot delete.

I have windows XP and I need my EXEcutabes. HELP!!!!!

I need help. I do not know whatelse to do . . . .

Please refer to the instructions posted here for removing XP Security Tool 2010, XP Defender Pro, and Vista Security Tool 2010.

Please post the log from Malwarebytes when complete.

I just want to be clear on what steps to perform:

1) download Malwarebytes and fixexe.reg on an external drive from a non-infected computer.
2) Start the infect computer and click on one of the non-working EXE files this will trigger the rogue
3) on the external drive, double click fixexe.reg and allow data to be added to the infected computer
4) from the external drive, install malwarebytes leaving update and launch checked.
5) Perform complete scan \ remove selected \ and send you the log

Is this correct? I will be home around 6 p.m so I will give it a try.

I copied fixexe.reg and mbam-setip onto an external drive.
fixexe.reg ran successfully.

I can not run the mbam-setup. Please advise. A.S.A.P.

Thanks.

Hello I think you actually have Internet Security 2010

As this infection deletes a core executable of Malwarebytes' we will need to download a new copy of it and put it in the C:\ etc... so please follow our Removal Guide in the link above. Step 8 I belive is your solution.

You will move to the Automated Removal Instructions for Internet Security 2010 using Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:

After you completed that post your scan log here,let me know how things are.
The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.

Are you suggest that I perform all these steps?

I have tried to use rkill before and it would not run before

When I tried to mbam-setup before, it did not open at all. I think I have an older version of Malware on my machine.
Also, I do not have access to the internet on the affected machine. So if i do get this work I willnot be ableto update on that machine.

Please advise.

Hi ,If you reboot you will need to Run Rkill again,
You will most likely need to run Step 8 if this below fails.

If you cannot use the Internet,you will need access to another computer that has a connection.
From there save mbam-setup.exe to a flash,usb,jump drive or CD. Now transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program.
If you cannot transfer to or install on the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD by double-clicking on mbam-setup.exe so it will install on the hard drive.
***
Manually Downloading Updates:
Manually download them from HERE and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.


Note: Mbam-rules.exe is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current database definitions if you're having problems updating through the program's interface or have already manually downloaded the latest definitions (mbam-rules.exe) shown on this page, is to do the following: Install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program and update through MBAM's interface. Copy the definitions (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system. If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show it.

I was not able to run Rkill, IExplore, and eXplorer . . . nothing happens.
I was not able to run mbam-setup . . . nothing happens.

I copied the malware exe file in the directory. However, I think I have a older version of Malware already on the system.
The executable started but I got the following error:
Run-time error '339'
Component "vbalsgrid6.ocx" or one of its dependencies not correcly registered: a file is missing or invalid.
program appears to have stopped


files in C:\prgram files\malwarebytes'anti-malware are dated 12/2008. Do you think I can install on another machine update and then copy the files into the directory on the affected machine?

Please advise.

Yes..
Or
If you have another user account,try from there that may work.

OR
Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and try to download.

OR

Click on Start, Then Control Panel
Click on Users
Create a new user account with Administrative Rights
Login as that user
Now run MBAM (MalwareBytes below) ,, Run a FULL scan this will search all user accounts on your machine.
Reboot your machine.
When your machine is at the login don't login into the infected account log into the new account you made.
Logout of the new account once the machine finishes booting up.
Log into your original account that was infected. Post the MBAM log.
Hopefully we are good.


I have to leave now.

Did you copy/install in the default folder? ( i.e. C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\ )

Please go here and read Number 15. Follow the procedure on your infected computer and try running Malwarebytes.

So do you want me to copy
mbam.exe, mbam-dor.exe, mbamgui.exe, mbamservice.exe
from a non-infected compuer
to the infected computer in C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware?

I will do this, but I copied all the contents of C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the non-infected computer to the infected computer.

I am unsure of how this is different from what you are asking me to do????
