So far, the trojan hasn't really affected the laptop. A few times I've opened Explorer and it has automatically shut down, but otherwise it hasn't been noticeable beyond the detection message that frequently pops up.
I downloaded the Process Explorer from Sysinternals and followed the directions McAfee provided but that didn't work.
I turned off system restore and put the computer into safe mode but that didn't work.
I downloaded two trojan vundo scanners on two different websites (couldn't tell you which ones) and neither even detected the trojan.
I heard the VundoFix V7.0 was good from Major Geeks, but it is currently unavailable b/c of defects.
Have no idea what else to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish. * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version. * Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan. * The scan may take some time to finish, so please be patient. * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results. * Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected. * When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to restart (see Extra Note below). * The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM. * Copy & paste the entire report into your next reply.
Extra Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
I noticed that the database number for MBAM is 1306 It is currently 1361. Are you able to update it? If not, are you running it from a standard account (ie: non-administrator)? If you are able to update it, run another quick scan.
