Antivirus 2009 / Vundo RunDLL Comedy

Recommended Posts

So, I got Antivirus 2009. And while I'm using MalwareBytes to get it, I pick up Vundo. I spent some time slowly prying it off my system using a combination of programs (Kaspersky Antivirus, Avast Antivirus, MalwareBytes ((which I think did the most good.)), and CrapCleaner) after which the main .exe of the issue seems to have vanished. However, now I've got a new issue or two. The first, and most annoying, is that when I turn my computer on, immediately after startup I get a RunDLL error, stating that the bawawaza.dll (one of the Antivirus 2009 bits) specified module cannot be found. It's a simple enough thing to click and OK out of, but that's only part of it. The other part is that 3 bits of Vundo just will not go away, despite 5 or 6 attempts to remove them, 3 of those in Administrative Safe Mode. Here's the log file stating the 3 infected bits MalwareBytes 'says' are cleaned. If you guys can come up with any assistance, I'd appreciate it. I've tried all my virus/anti-malware/system cleaning programs, I've attempted to manually remove the program through cmd line editing and manual registry plinking, nothing. It's just not budging. Think you could give me a hand?
