Just read about something called Virtumonde online and noticed on my last scan that spybot was scanning files from it so it must be on my computer.
Also found something suspicious in my documents called @FinalDlg_default_logfile_name...

I have not used Spybot S&D in years since it is not as effective as other free alternatives. See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products).

Users not familiar with Spybot have reported they could see the status bar at the bottom of the program display various types of malware and were confused if that meant the computer was infected. This search display is how Spybot performs its scanning routines using its detection list (includes files) some of which have malware looking names with an .sbi extention. This listing of malware during the scan is what Spybot is searching for and does not necessarily mean your system is infected. You only need to be concerned with the search results after the scan has been completed and what items was detected as a threat. Spybot also scans the registry and Virtumonde.sci is a detection commonly found in Browser Helper Objects registry keys.

--- Search result list ---
Virtumonde.sci: [SBI $C747BB01] Browser helper object (Registry key, nothing done)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Browser Helper Objects\{549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3}

Virtumonde.sci: [SBI $53DCC2E2] Class ID (Registry key, nothing done)

Virtumonde.sci detections could just be remnants (orphan keys) in the registry left behind from a previous infection. After an anti-virus or anti-malware vendor updates its product version or releases an update to definition databases, it is not uncommon for subsequent scans to find more entries which had previously gone undetected by prior scans. In these cases it means the associated physical file(s) are no longer present and the BHO is harmless.

For a second opinion, you may want to download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and follow these instructions for doing a Quick Scan in normal mode.

I'm not sure what created FinalDlg_default_logfile_name in your documents but it doesn't appear to be anything of concern from the systems I reviewed where others had the same thing.
