I'm really freaked out now...

Recommended Posts

I got this thing when I was working in a middle of something and it said Buffer Overflow, Explorer will now be terminated. What the heck is this?

What happened after the warning and what app were you using at the time?

I was using IE8 and Explorer restarted after the warning. I'm doing a SuperAntiSpyware scan right now and it's found 18 Vundo threats so far. Is there anyway to completely remove the Vundo threats?

Let SAS do it's job then run a scan with Vundofix.exe to see if it picks up any dregs.

 

Might be advisable to post a hijackthis log as well.

I already posted a HJT log and Rridgley told me to run a VundoFix scan, but it didn't find anything when I ran it. SuperAntiSpyware removed abou half of the spyware but there's still:

 

Adware.Vundo Variant/Resident

Trojan.Vundo Variant/Small

Adware.Vundo Variant/Rel

 

 

These keep coming back, no matter what I do.

They might reside within a system restore point where they can't be deleted.

 

The only way is to turn system restore off to purge all infected restore points then turn it back on.

I know how to delete the most recent Restore Point, so I'll delete that and try again.

Icedrake, can I advise you strongly to follow rridgely's instructions in your hjt log thread. Humpty wasn't aware that you had posted a log when he advised you.

 

If you are doing things in between without him knowing what you are doing, it may alter his advice.

Oopsies, yep Ice, best to stick with RR as sorting these types of infections can be quite bothersome especially if a new variant has hit. :)

The term Elf abuse springs to mind, but I fear a mod may remove this random thought. :)

 

 

EDIT: Only kiddin' of course Ice.
