I'm really stuck with this problem and all help is appreciated. My firewall and anti-virus (both norton) were down for a week and when I got it back up I scanned and got a virus alert for this trojan: [Trojan.Vundo]. It is placed in [C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\hardiis.dll] and I have tried to delete it both in safe mode and with explorer closed and in both cases this message comes up:

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

Also, my anti-virus has come up with a [Virus Alert] about this trojan that will not go away, no matter how many times I hit OK. The message says that Norton Antivirus has detected a virus on your computer, then goes on to give the object name (C:\WINDOWS\Fonts\hardiis.dll), the virus name (trojan.vundo) and the action taken (access to the file was denied).

Any help is greatly appreciated, I'm really stuck here.

Thanks.

Hey muzicman

Try using this self-help removal guide to remove the Vundo trojan. It can be found here. Let me know how it goes, if you cannot remove it we can arrange something else.

Yeah everything seems fine now. Ha ha kinda coincidental; I had been browsing the site earlier and came across that and I have already installed it all. Thanks again for the help.
