Hello There! I hope everyone is doing well.

I managed to get the Vundo virus and was able to wipe it, but it also came with the bonus of Smitfraud.
I read the forums and followed the instructions but to no avail.

It seems to be stuck and S&D keeps reporting it. There are no pop ups anymore (I guess I crippled it but could not kill it).

I have (and used) Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Spywareblaster, RegSupreme, Hijack This, VundoFix, SDFix, SmitfraudFix, CC Cleaner and MMH Cleaner.

I am currently running Zone Alarm and Ewido AVG 7.5.

I also ran the Ewido and Panda online scans Ewido only found some hidden cookies on my system and Panda found 2 hacking tools/rootkits. I believe these are the culprits. I have the Panda Scan Report as well

The Panda Anti virus download is not compatible with AVG, I am removing AVG yet to run the Panda anti virus.
I also found Virtumonde on my machine as well.

I deleted some of the logs before I came to this forum. I can run any of the programs again if needed.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

Hello Again All!

I could not wait for a reply so I poked around and found a post from The Joker on May 1 2007, 10:06 PM. I followed his instructions although the file lists did not match. I did not have any on my machine from the list.

I believe I removed them using a haphazard combination of Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, Spywareblaster, RegSupreme, Hijack This, VundoFix, SDFix, SmitfraudFix, CC Cleaner and MMH Cleaner.

Please also note that I found Virtumonde lurking in the background which was not detected until after I used SmitfraudFix. Virtumonde seemed to proliferate every time I used Spybot, the files would just multiply. I was able to finally remove it all after four passes of deletes/quarantines from Spybot (I do not know why!).

After all the scanning and removal attempts performed, I used the Combofix utility and that did the trick!

Beware... on my second to last scan from Panda it listed the Combofix.exe as a hacker tool. Once I removed it, I got a clean bill of health. What an ordeal...

Issue Resolved (for now)

Ps. Would it be wise to post my logs for someone to quickly analyze just in case?

Thanks Joker!!!
