    Default Virtumonde and Virtumonde.generic

    A few days ago, while on the internet I started getting random ads popping up while I was routinely checking my e-mail, checking sports scores, etc. I just figured it just came along when I was on a certain website. They became more frequent and my computer starting running noticeably slower. A friend of mine installed Spybot S&D about a year ago so I thought I'd run a check to see if there was any malware of some sort. After running the check it found Virtumonde and Virtumode.generic to be present. I clicked Fix Selected Problems and wanted to run the check one more time to confirm that they had been removed. After running the check it detected them once again. I ran a check about an hour ago and it has detected 1 entry of the Virtumonde trojan and and 3 entries of the Virtumonde.generic trojan. I've visited numerous forums and found this problem to be rather common. I have not run any other types of scans except for Spybot. I did run a system restore last night hoping to take it back a few days before I was having this problem but that didn't work. This is all I have tried so far. I figured that it would be easier to just ask for some help and see where that goes. So far I have been on the internet for a good while and I am no longer seeing any pop ups but my computer is running a little slower than normal. If someone could help me remove these files, that would be awesome! Thanks!

    Default Need Help Removing Virtumonde and Virtumonde.generic

    About one minute ago I had two pop ups resurface once again. I haven't had any all day long. I will need my computer for some assignments in college, so I'd like to try and get this fixed asap. Thank you.
