Hello, bigtweet, and welcome to GeeksToGo Forums :tazz:

You have a Vundo.B infection.

Please download VundoFix.zip to your desktop.
  • Double-click VundoFix.zip and extract it to your C:\ directory.
  • Copy the instructions below and paste them into Notepad for reference.
    • All other windows need to be closed while doing this fix!
  • Navigate to the new folder C:\VundoFix
  • Double click on KillVundo.bat
    • When it starts running it will tell you that you need an active internet connection then ask you to press any key once you do.
  • Please press any key to continue.
  • Wait for HiJackThis to open.
  • When HiJackThis opens, click Do a system scan only. Place a check next to the following items, if found:O2 - BHO: MSEvents Object - {B8B55274-0F9A-41E5-9067-A3539BD9E860} - C:\WINDOWS\inf\xmlrun.dll
    O20 - Winlogon Notify: xmlrun - C:\WINDOWS\inf\xmlrun.dll
  • Once they all have a check next to them, click the FIX CHECKED button, then close HiJackThis.
You will once again be prompted to press any key. Upon doing so this time you will receive a "Blue Screen Of Death". Don't worry, this is normal!
Let the computer reboot. If it doesn't boot straight to windows, manually turn the computer off and then back on.

Once the computer is rebooted post a new HiJackThis log as well as the contents of vundofix.txt which can be found in this folder: C:\VundoFix

Yay, your log is clean! ;)

To prevent an infection in the future, I highly recommend following these steps:

1. Practice safe browsing - Don't click on every activex window, don't click pop-ups, and don't browse suspicious websites.

2. Keep Windows Updated - Visit Windows Update regularly to make sure your computer has the latest security patches.

3. Lock down IE - To make IE more secure, I recommend these programs:
IESpyad---------Tutorial
SpywareBlaster---Tutorial
Hosts file

4. Scan your computer regularly - Scan your computer with Ad-Aware, SpyBot S&D, and Microsoft Anti-Spyware weekly to make sure your computer is spyware-clean.

5. Use an anti-virus and firewall - Although an anti-virus won't help much against spyware, it'll still help secure your computer. A good free anti-virus is AntiVir personal. It may not have the best graphics, but it does the job. For a firewall, the bare minimum is to use the one that comes with windows. If you want a different one, Zone Alarm, Sygate, and Kerio are all good choices. So people prefer Kerio 2.1.5 for its simpler interface.

Well, goodbye, and stay safe. :tazz:
