I have a problem with Vundo

By PonchoPete
Dec 18, 2008
  1. I have CA anti virus. Every time I turn on my computer I scan for spyware and Vundo appears. Even after I delete it the previous day it comes back. On top of that I have to delete spy ware every half hour and my system is slower than it usually is. Any help would be appreciated. I have the Logs attached to this thread. Agian, any help would be appreciated.

    Removed all found Issues

    Sorry about that. I um scanned it and it came up clean and scanned it again, came up clean again, my system seems to working fine but CA anti-virus scans a few low threat adwares occasionally. I don't know if I should be worried but heres the fresh log for Malware. Thanks again

    It sounds like your protection is set to a more secure setting that cleans cookies and adware. I'd leave it alone. I favor lengthy logfiles over taking risks.

    Every 2 weeks or so, scan with MBAM & SAS to confirm protections coming from resident security programs.
