Greetings and salutations. I am among the (many) that has gotten that cursed Vundo Trojan Horse/Virus. Norton identified it with the warning that continuously informs me that it cant gain access to nor fix the infected file (C:\WINDOWS\System32\ddayx.dll)

Of course this message continously pops up no matter what as long as I keep Norton Auto Protect open.

I've tried the symantec removal tool; of course it didn't work. Tried ewido, the cleaner--you name it. I've looked at some sucessful removals in your postings and hoped that you could help. Below, find my Hijack log

in advance, thanks for your time and efforts

Well, I couldn't wait for a reply--my wife uses the computer for work, so I decided to try myself. By looking at all of the others who got this removed with the help of the tech crew, I was able to apply their removal techniques for my problem.....IT WORKED!!!!!!!!! My infected file was C:\WINDOWS\System32\ddayx.dll
It seemed clear that the infection was random in file names. The one thing that threw me a bit was entering the second path name after opening the vundo killer. I looked at a ton of different successful posts before I realized that it was simply the filename BACKWARDS minus the dll extension plus an * :

I was, of course, a bit nervous (anything slightly DOS'ish tends to make me sweat a little more), but my computer appears to be Vundo-Free.

Even though my specific problem wasn't addressed--I understand how swamped you guys must be--I want to thank the tech crew at geeks to go. Your helping of others invariably helped me. I can't believe you cats do this for free and out of the goodness of your own hearts; you've renewed my faith in humanity!

Thanks again....I think that a donation may be in order!!!!
