Hi again,

I ran Panda Activescan, but it came up completely clean, so it didn't generate a report. I would run TrojanHunter or Ewido, but my trial period has run out. I would be willing to buy one of them if you think it would be a good idea.

Is there some other program I should run? Is Vundo hidden somewhere on my machine?

Thanks so much for all of your help. I really appreciate it.
Tracy

I tried this, but I forgot, I had the trial version before I found Geekstogo, so it is expired as well. Is this something I should purchase?

I have had System Restore turned off since I contracted Trojan.Vundo, is that how it should be until my computer is completely clean?

Thanks again

Click here to download Pocket Killbox by Option^Explicit. Then double-click on Killbox.exe to run Killbox. Place the following lines (complete paths) in bold in the "Full Path of File to Delete" box in Killbox, and click the red button with the white X on it after each. Keep track of any files it tells you either could not be found or could not be deleted, as you'll need those later:

C:\WINDOWS\Cursors\hardnet.dll

For the files that it either couldn't find or couldn't delete, in the killbox again this time, put a mark next to "Delete on Reboot". Copy and paste each file into the file name box, then click the red button with the X after each. It will ask you if you want to reboot each time you click it, answer NO until after you've pasted the last file name, at which time you should answer Yes.

If you receive a message such as: "Component 'MsComCtl.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid." when trying to run TheKillbox, click here to download and run missingfilesetup.exe. Then try TheKillbox again.

Thank you so much!! :) I had to remove one more file through Norton, but now everything is clean! Norton finds no threats! I can't tell you how much I appreciate your help. You're a lifesaver. I will happily be donating to the site. :)

And, Excal too! You got me through so much of the fix. Thank you!! :tazz:

You guys are the best!
