Virtumonde Trojans and Registry Errors

By jfranke03

  1. My computer is infected with a number of things. Some of them that are showing on my Spybot S&D and Ad-Aware SE are Virtumonde and a number of Registry Errors. I'm not sure how to clean my computer of these? They also have affected it so that I can't do a System Restore, I can't download any programs online, and it has overridden my Windows Security System. Please help.

    Note, one user reported the need to restart in safe mode with networking, as the relief was temporary. This refers to message #1.
    Additional note: Message #3 link to 'fixit download' has demonstrated its effectiveness in many cases. Go to message # 3 'fixit download'
