Simple problem?
I've already had computer "repaired" by a shop, and it got better, but virus is still lingering.

No IMMEDIATE error or malfunction, computer is just real slow and "buggy" - Did a scan tonight with avast! and found the Vundo -

System is WinXP

Currently running:
Microsoft Security Essentials
avast!
PC Safe Doctor (just downloaded a few minutes ago)

Nothing has detected anything realtime, but doing a system scan, avast! came up with the finding:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstscp.dll - Threat: Win32:Vundo-JU [Trj]
c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\microsoft\microsoft antimalware\definition updates\{277d9da3-3c51-4554-8b75-056899d45e9a}\mpk512528ccd4.sys - Error: The system cannot find the path specified (3)
C:\WINDOWS\system32\mstscp.dll - Threat: Win32:Vundo-JU [Trj]

Tried to "Move to Chest" then "Repair"
Result: Error: Access is denied (3)
then
Result: Error: Access is denied (5)

downloaded pcsafedoctor and it didn't detect anything

I run MalwareBytes AntiMalware once a week and hasn't detected anything

also have HitMan Pro 3.5 but hasn't detected anything

Hello, I moved this to the Am I Infected from XP forum.

Now Vundo can be stubborn, MalwareBytes updated to a new core engine this morning I believe. You have updated MBAM ?

This link says it may just be a glitch
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=71599.0

No, nothing to worry about, we have seen this before. Most likely you have a pre-installed Windows on your system. Simply ignore it or uncheck 'Follow links during scan' in 'Scan Settings -

it is just an scan error, a file it cant find for whatever reason

Not info I care for either.

We can run an online scan for another look.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image


NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.


ou can also ask at Axast too and see if there's a newer fix.

Ok, well I had everything updated, all definitions - and nothing was being detected. But I ran avast! again, and did thorough scan and it came up with Vundo in a few spots. So then it told me it cleaned it, and did a restart and boot scan. The boot scan took a while, and found a few more files with Vundo. It said it cleaned them, or deleted them.

So I've done this cycle a few times since my first post. Running every program I have, updated all definitions.

avast! has found several different instances of Vundo, deleted them. and it keeps detecting MS Security Updates as threats?
MS Security Essentials (MSSU) never found any threats.
MBAM never found any threats.
PC Safe Doctor found a few threats, but not Vundo - more malware or something.
HitMan Pro detected PC Safe Doctor as a threat, so I deleted it.
Now ESET detected UniBlue RegBooster as threat?

So I guess I might delete UniBlue, don't use it anyway. Might delete MSSU too.

Each program seems to find different things. Just wanted to have a good AntiVirus, AntiMalware, Registry Booster, FixerCleaner - so I've got all bases covered.

I'm going to try to run a full scan again and see if anything else comes up.


So here is the ESET Scan:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Downloads\Programs\Setup_FreeConverter.exe Win32/Adware.Toolbar.Dealio application deleted - quarantined
C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Downloads\Programs\Setup_FreeVideoConverter.exe Win32/Adware.Toolbar.Dealio application deleted - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\Launcher.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\rbmonitor.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\rbnotifier.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\rb_move_serial.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\rb_ubm.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined
C:\Program Files\Uniblue\RegistryBooster\registrybooster.exe Win32/RegistryBooster application cleaned by deleting - quarantined

Hello actually lose the Reg booster... Here's our position on these.

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:
  • Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

    The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.
  • Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.
  • Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.
  • Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.
  • The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.

That said I think we need a deeper look to find what is all going on. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.
