My McAfee on my dell computer says that a vundo trojan has been found. I can't clean, delete, or quarantine it. What should i do?

Hi Tinealways :thumbsup:

Try this excellent removal guide, does that help you out ?
How To Remove Winfixer / Virtumonde / Msevents / Trojan.vundo

btw: if not, in what folder does mcafee detect the trojan ?
If it is a folder called "c:\system volume in formation\_restore.....", then the problem is an old (infected) restore point of windows xp's system restore, in that case, you can flush the restore points by disabling system restore (and re-enable it afterwards)
Cannot repair, quarantine, or delete a virus found in the _RESTORE or System volume information folder
(it's an article from Symantec antivirus but it's the same for other anti virus programs)

Good luck :flowers:
