I hope that it is okay I am posting this, Google showed me a person with a similar problem getting help so I am assuming this is the right place... I'm almost at a loss here (but not quite yet). I honestly don't know where this spyware came from for once, but this is one vicious bug that seems indestructible. I had SpySweeper (been great up till now) and recently downloaded AdAware and Spybot S&D. All three of them detect Virtumonde and pathetically attempt to restore it, but it just keeps coming back after a restart. SpyBot even did a run before Windows started (it seemed) and looked like it got rid of it... I still got about 5 errors that a .dll was not found. Later Windows Explorer encountered and error and needed to restart (I have Vista), after that the bastard was back (I can tell because it brings my internet to a crawl). I even found some program specifically for removing Virtumonde, and it couldn't even find it... which was really wierd... I saw some posts about AVG Free and Hijack this, so I downloaded them from a different computer and put them on my computer using a USB Drive. You can view the log file here: zaletanski dot com / hj.txt (can't post links wtf?) AVG is downloading extremely slowly for some reason so I will try to get a log from that (or whatever) later tonight or tommarow, but I have to go for now. Any help to get rid of this will be extremely appreciated!
