    Default battling virtumonde... am i really clean?

    been fighting with virtumonde for about 3 hours after contracting it last night... via following a link on, i think, in the form of surprise pdf script(?) that ran on my machine unannounced. is that how this trojan typically arrives?

    anyway, after much trial and error and a gajillion restarts:

    malwarebytes says i am now clean.
    hijackthis says i am now clean.
    spybot says i am now clean.
    i've set a new system restore point and used cleanmgr to delete all previous restore points.

    i still haven't reconnected the infected machine to the network, because i'm just not sure i'm clean, despite the 3 progs above all indicating that i am. call me a skeptic...

    what am i missing? is there a step i've skipped. i didn't run combofix. do i need to at this point, if the other progs are all indicating the trojan is eradicated? combofix sounds kinda scary...

    thanks in advance for your attention to this matter.
