Virtumonde.dll problem

Unread postby vin2 » November 28th, 2010, 5:06 am

Hi everyone.

I have been using Spybot Search & Destroy and have trouble permanently deleting virtumonde.dll. Search and Destroy has detected it numerous times and even after pushing "fix checked problem", it always comes back when I scan again.

My attempts to resolve this involve using vundofix.exe in safe mode, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, vundobegone, and avast. All programs state there are no problems and do not detect anything malicious.

After reading how bad this infection can be, the only strange thing that has happened are some of the bookmark icons swapping around. I am using firefox and have not encountered any popups. Listed below is my hijackthis log and uninstall list.

Thank you very much in advance. =)
