    The spyware on my computer is watching us right now! It knows that I'm doing research to kill it. It calls itself "WinVirusPro2006". It's smart, it will pop up when I visit sites for spyware, or virus scanners; other times, it will just close windows unexpectedly. A box will pop up in the center of the screen that says "WinVirusPro2006", "install now". I've been careful to not click on the box, but just end task, until last night I clicked the "x", and here come all the pop ups. I'm afraid it just got worse.

    Some sites are calling this "vundo", but I'm not sure... have you ever seen this before? ...If it has been mentioned before, I must have missed it and I apologize, I'm still looking over the forum.

    Thank You for the help, and have a Merry....er...Happy New Year!:)

    Welcome to Majorgeeks!

    Please follow our standard cleaning procedures which are necessary for us to provide you support. Also there are steps included for installing, running, and posting HijackThis logs as attachments.
    • Run ALL the steps in this Sticky thread READ & RUN ME FIRST Before Asking for Support
    • Make sure you check version numbers and get all updates.
    • Very Important: Make sure you tell us the results from running the tutorial...was anything found? Were you unable to complete any of the scans?...Were you unable to download any of the tools?...Did you do the on-line scans as suggested? etc.
    • After doing ALL of the above you still have a problem make sure you have booted to normal mode and run the steps in the below link to properly use HijackThis and attach a log:
    Downloading, Installing, and Running HijackThis

    Make sure you also rename HijackThis.exe as suggested in the procedures. Use analyse.exe for the new name. This is very important due to some new infections going around.

    • When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
      • CounterSpy
      • AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
      • Bitdefender - from step 6
      • Panda Scan - from step 6
      • runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
      • newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
      • HijackThis
    NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!
