Infected - help please

Recommended Posts


Thanks for posting. I had this exact problem and used your fix of copying the executable file onto a flash drive. Worked like a charm. I ran MBAM, and it found the vundo trojan. I restarted and ran it again, and it again found several of the same trojans. This morning, it is still running slowly and acting infected. I think there are still traces of the trojan that are reproducing.

Please pass along more advice or tips.

I tried the Microsoft malicious software removal tool, and the trojan deletes the executable file from it as well. I even tried running it from a CD, and it starts to run and then stops almost immediately.

How can I do a similar fix to the Malwarebytes executable file; i.e., rename the exe file and copy it back to the infected computer. I can't find the file (it is not in program files like MBAM was).

Someone please help.
