  1. My system has been infected with the Trojan 'Virtumonde'. I dont know where it came from, I tried removing it by using various anti-virus removal s/w like windows defender, Pc tools Spyware doctor, Vundofix etc. But the bug - Dj Juan keeps implementing itself on the registry. I may have downloaded the trojan while downloading Java from kaspersky site to run the online scan. I'm unable to open any icons on control panel, hence unable to uninstall any s/w too!

    Please guide me what I shud do to remove this bug permanently from my laptop, I'm really tired of dealing with it anymore.

    you could try dos and use the control admintools command. I have done this before. Start safe mode with dos support and then go in and create yourself a new user with admin rights then you may be able to instal from your new user account. I have managed this a couple of times when I have had virus problems in the past.

    Has a great section on dos to help you.
    good luck
