I have all the latest updates for Spybot SD, Spywareblaster, SpywareGuard, AdAware - including VX2 plug-in, Symantec AV, etc.

Spybot continues to detect VX2/f after cleaning and reboot.
[Ad-aware does not]

Spybot says: local machine / software / vendor
but when I jump to the location it reads:
registry key / local machine / windows NT / Winlogon / Notify / default reg_sz value not set

VX2finder.exe and Kill2Me find nothing.

Hijack This log and RegHance log are available.

It took awhile but i finally got rid of VX2/f.
It was found and removed with SPYBOT SD but reappeared after rebooting. Ad-aware's VX2 cleaner plug-in continued to find nothing.

Here's how to get rid of VX2/f:
Start up computer in SAFE MODE,
run Spybot SD and remove VX2/f [I got rid of the back-ups too]
run Ad-aware in advance mode - delete and purge files

run Spybot and Ad-aware 2 more times { don't ask why, but spybot sd picked up another malware on the second time that it didn't find on the first go-around

Even in safe mode, the Ad-aware plug-in never picked up on the VX2 file, but the advanced ad-aware scan DID pick up a VX2 file named "slewjo.exe" in the windows system 32 folder which should be deleted and purged.

For your peace of mind, reboot in normal mode and...
VOILA... no more VX2/f !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
