Thank you. Windows XP lives again in my world.

1) Used EWIDO - downloaded and ran 5/30 - and removed it (also from the quarantine section on the tool).
2) Ran Windows Defender and removed (again, am so new to this - also from the quarantine)
3) Immed. ran vundo.exe downloaded fron this site http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4 on 5/31 - yup, today. And it finally worked!!!
4) Proceeded to empty every recyle bin and purge all files in Norton protected file.

Have been fighting this for days. Got it on May 28th - it liked this file - C\WINDOWS\system32\pmnll.dll.

things that i could not get to work.
1) All prior vundo tools.
2) Spybot - fact this wonderful thing hated EWIDO but I am sure it was something I did as many people like it
3) Ad-aware
4) Trogan

Had NO idea that Remove command put things in Quarantine,too. Who knew?

Anyway - thanks so much for all your help. Now that I can breathe, am going to mega research how to protect system

thank you.

Good luck with your studies and hopefully you'll learn enough to prevent another major infection!

To protect yourself against malware and reduce the potential for re-infection , you may want to read "Simple and easy ways to keep your computer safe" and "How to Prevent Spyware".
