Have XP Professional installed on a dell thinkpad. Was running slow with lots of spyware and viruses. Got most quarintined and stilll had Vundo on it. Ran VundoFix which appeared to be successful. Now on reboot, "error C:\WINDOWS\system32\ysmovnai.dll Cannnot be found." The Task and tool bars never load and have an hourglass when the cursor is moved over them. Taskmanager will initialize only to the point of being able to do a shutdown. Shutdown hangs with "Saving your settings" for hours.

I think that there's a couple of issues here. One is that there may still be other infections on the system that are causing this. Another is that the Vundo fix may have "fixed" some critical files - and now they're not working. Finally, the error messages are likely to be remnants of an incomplete or improper fix - and they're still looking to load the virus which no longer is on your system.

I'd suggest a repair install of XP in order to get the system functioning ( http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm ) and then several virus scans to make sure the system is clean. Here's a couple of free, online scans:

Seems like I finally got the Vundo taken care of. Now have a darksma trojan. It has disabled my wireless hardware and connection.

A couple of options here.

You can fight with it just to get online - and then try cleaning it with the HiJackThis team. No telling how long that'll take.

Or, you can bite the bullet, backup your stuff (if able), mark the backups as infected, and then format and reinstall Windows. It's a long process also - so the choice is yours.

When Vundo was removed it affected my wireless drivers. After refreshing the drivers everything is working again.
