While away for the weekend my son decided to have a go at pirating video games for our pc. Now, as can be expected, the family PC is infested with spyware. I have been running my TrendMicro Office client, AVG Anti-virus, Adaware SE, as well as Spybot S&D to no avail. The source of the problem appears to be a trojan named Virtemunde (the only program that has identified this is Spybot, which cannot remove it even after restarts.) I have tried VundoFix as recommended by many sites, and the problem is still unresolved.

Here is my HijackThis v 1.99.1 Log:

I found something i should not have unzipped a few days ago, and like your machine became very infected.

I tried many programs, but I think the ones at this site did the trick, and most are free, too.

Hi and welcome

TrendMicro Office client, AVG Anti-virus

Both running as active, This causes system clashes and instabilty, and the possiblty of false reports with a huge waste of system resources. And in some cases it actually reduces your protection.
You can keep both programs, but you must disable the real-time component of one AntiVirus, keeping it as an on-demand scanner, while the other AV will provide a real-time protection.
The alternative is to uninstall one AV and keep the other.

Download Combofix from Here
Important.....Place it on your Desktop.
  • Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log and a HiJackthis log in your next reply
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.
Updating Java:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE)6u1
  • Scroll to Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u1 and click on the download button
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
    Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on the Software icon > add/remove programs.
    Search in the list for all previous installed versions of Java. (J2SE Runtime Environment.... )
    It should have this icon next to it: Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u1-windows-i586-p.exe to install the newest version.

In your next reply post
