    My computer is going haywire and I am pretty sure I have a virus. What's a good free anti virus? I have the free edition of AVG Anti Virus. Will that be good enough?

    I update it regularly and I am in the process of running a scan but so far nothing has come up. I am just really afraid that it might miss what ever it is that is on my computer.

    www.malwarebytes.org

    get the antimalware program they make, install it, update it and then run it in safe mode.

    I am pretty sure that the virus type is the trojan.vundo. No matter what I do it doesn't seem to be going any where. Any ideas?

    I used malwarebytes but I am pretty sure that it is still on my computer. I am also using vundo fix but it is showing that I dont have a virus.

    If it is trojan.vundo just enter that into google and run a search. You will come up with many many fixes for it. Just start going through the list and following the instructions, eventually one will work for you.

    Thats how I usually go about fixing the trickier ones. There almost never seems to be a one size fits all answer to the more robust infections. My last infection (the idiot I am ignored the AVG message that the file may be infected) took about 15 different anti-malware programs and manual file removal steps before it finally went away.

    vundo is very hard to get rid of, regardless of what vundo fix can do.. you almost have to know how to manually remove its files with a process analyzer

    Man this sucks I don't have the patience to get rid of this plus I'm not that computer savvy. Thanks for the info though.
