Wondering if there are any techheads here please?
I have two laptops. Recently, one of them got infected with a thing called Virtumonde...on looking it up online, it`s like the nemesis of computors.
It meant I couldn`t run any Spybot checks..it froze it up, the laptop began to slow down until finally, I couldn`t even access it in Safe mode.
So the son transferred all our files onto the other laptop. Then he rebooted it, and it seems to be working again.
But..now the other laptop ...this one..has the Virtumonde thing!
I am wondering if it is because the virus thingy has piggybacked in on the transferred files?
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of this ruddy thing please?
And if I can, what I can do to stop it coming back again?
I tried the recommended fixes for it online, and none of them work, they are rubbish.
My protection at the moment is ZoneAlarm, Antivir, and Malware with Spybot search and destroy which I can`t currently run, it gets about halfway through then stops because of the Virtumonde thing.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
