Problem- possibly Vundo Virus

by Soara / May 26, 2008 9:50 PM PDT

It's been two days now, I've been getting messages form my Avast antivirus that several files have a sample of the VUndo.dll virus. I performed several scans of the whole system- avast couldn't find any infected files.
Then, I've been on several help forums, where someone suggested to download another antivirus called ANtiSpywareBot, which I did. It found about 120 infected files (I deleted them all) and it doesn't find any new ones.
Still, the problem is going on, but only when I am on the Internet. Avast keeps on telling me several files contain a sample of the VUndo Virus. Is there a possibility that the source of that is still on my computer?
I'd be glad for any help, I usually manage to take care of all such little problems myself, but this time, it is really driving me crazy.

Thanks for your tips. It seems I've gotten rid of them. Malwarebytes found about 8 files infected with the Vundo virus my other antiviruses couldn't find, and the last one seems to have been deleted after a reboot. Finally free ^-^.

Really really really thank you^!
