Hi paperausa and Welcome to GeekstoGo!

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 - {28DFFB3C-A6C2-481B-B8D7-AD205DECBA6E} - C:\WINDOWS\Config\keydoc.dll

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: dvdtask - C:\WINDOWS\msagent\dvdtask.dll (file missing)

    O20 - Winlogon Notify: keydoc - C:\WINDOWS\Config\keydoc.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.

Run MSCONFIG and enable everything in the startup area. To get to MSCONFIG, click on Start -> Run -> type in MSCONFIG -> click OK!

Under the "General" Tab
Make Sure Normal Startup is Checked!!

Click Apply>>Close>>Follow the Prompts to Restart!!

Restart Normal and have the PC Scanned here:
Panda Active Scan

You will need to be using Internet Explorer for the Scan to work!

Save the Report it generates


Post back with a fresh HijackThis log and the reports from Ewido and Panda!

As well as the contents of vundofix.txt which can be found in this folder: C:\VundoFix

Thank you again!
I followed all the steps down to the disk clean up but could not find these:

C:\Windows\System32\Temp

C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp

C:\Documents and Settings\<Your Profile>\Local Settings\Temp

C:\Documents and Settings\<All other users Profile>\Local Settings\Temp

Should I go on or do something else?

By the way, could you tell me in simple words what is the problem?

I really appreciate your prompt help!

To try to explain what happened will be a chore!

I have to get ready for a day of Heart Doc appts,so I will better explain later today!

Easiest explanation!

Some garbage attached itself to some very critical system files!

Had we just deleted or removed the files and reg keys!

The system would have said poo on you and wouldnt have restarted!

So thats why all the particular steps!


To help keep the Temp Files cleaned!


CleanUp! 4.0:
http://cleanup.stevengould.org/


CCleaner:
http://www.filehippo...d_ccleaner.html


Ill be back later today!

Go ahead and ask any other questions you need answered and I will do my best!

Hi and thank you again :) !
My computer runs regularly now and this is soooo much appreciated!
I understand the garbage thing.... better not to know all the details!
What is the Heart Doc job you have?
Should I keep looking for those file/folders I could not find? :tazz:
Take care. :)

OK,there are a group of System Files that Windows has to have to be able to Operate!

Much like a car needs to gas and oil to run!

When a bug attaches itself to this System File,you have to disinfect the System File as well get rid of the bug!

This can be most interesting to accomplish since you have to catch the bug before it loads into the System File and the files function!

So basically,you have to pause the boot sequence between the time the PC is turned on and the time the first or second file begins to load and then kill the bug, remove the entries that activate the bug and restore or abort the boot sequence!

Now I am Confused!! :) LMAO!!!!!!!!!!! :)


You asked about the Heart Doc?

Well,lets just say,I am lucky to be here!

I have been home about a week and a half from the Hospital!

I got me a 3 week vacation in ICU-> CCU-> Observation-> and then a regular room!

No need to get into details! :tazz:

Things seem to be sorted and I should have recovered all my speech and walking abilities by Christmas! :)


As for those Temp Folders,it would be best that you try to locate those!

CCleaner and CleanUp will keep this cleaned up for the most part but its best you know how to find them!

When in Doubt-> Click Start-> Search-> Type in Temp for a System Search and they will all appear in the Search Window!


Feel free to ask any other questions!

How scary! I am glad to hear that you are recovering!
Thank you again for all the help and explainations... I am just a home user and nowadays you must know so much to use a computer and not getting into trouble with all these bad stuff!
I understand it is a brain challenge to find the way to get rid of it and luckily thare are people like you who are willing to do so. But who are the bad guys?
I will try to resuscitate my old laptop that I am now thinking I put to retirement because of some malware attack I did not recognize. In case, I will contact you... always nice to have an extra pc to have my daughter play with (4: she wants to sit in my lap and push the keys... can you imagine!) :tazz:
Thank you again and take care!

Bring me that old laptop and lets see what we can do with it!

I think some of the answers you seek may be in these 2 links in my signature

Browser Hijacking & How to Stop It!

What are Hackers looking for on your PC?



I can always dig up more info but the bottom line is,this is all about easy money and the quest for it!

Ciao Cretemonster,

Thank you again for your help and all the best to you.
