  1. I completed the 8 steps to get rid of the vundo virus. Logs are attached. How do things look?? Not sure what happened to my CCleaner logs though. Sorry about that. Thanks for all the help!!!


    Update
    As I was laying here watching television, I noticed that mcafee has popped up saying it just blocked vundo. Apparantly it's not all gone so if someone could advise me on what to do next I would appreciate it. Just so you guys know, I was able to turn my windows updates back on and haven't seen any pop-ups, just the mcafee saying it had detected and removed vundo.

    Hi puga203

    Please download Combofix:
    http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

    And save to the desktop.

    Close all other browser windows.

    Please connect all your external hard drive/flash drive before running Combofix, if you have any


    Double-click on the combofix icon found on your desktop.

    Please note, that once you start combofix you should not click anywhere on the combofix window as it can cause the program to stall. In fact, when combofix is running, do not touch your computer at all and just take a break as it may take a while for it to complete.

    When finished, it will produce a logfile located at C:\combofix.txt.

    Attach combofix.txt in your next reply

    Oops, I'm sorry about that! Should I rescan after uninstalling or just uninstall and continue? I haven't used limewire in probably 6 months or so and I didn't even think about it...haha

    Haven't heard anything back, but Limewire was uninstalled immediately after reading the last post. I'm still in a holding pattern, waiting on what to do next...do I rescan or what??

    This is what I'd do, and therefore what you should do ;)

    Uninstall your McAfee Antivirus (it's really one of the bad ones)
    Then run the McAfee Removal Tool

    Restart

    Install Avira free AntiVirus (I'd say better than any bought one)

    Update Avira (I just right click on the tray icon and select "Start Update")

    Start up Malwarebytes again; Update it; (Note: Your Malwarebytes database is quite old)
    Then run a full scan (remove all found Malwares)

    Restart

    Pretty sure your computer will be much better off :)
