Restart the PC in Safe Mode and turn off System Restore and run Spybot. If you have any problems then check the first link in my post above. Good luck.

See how you go with this

From another PC download and install this program and copy the the installed folder along with VundoFix.exe to a USB Stick.

The Sophos SAV32CLI folder can be safely deleted after it is copied to USB.

Restart the PC in Safe Mode and turn off System Restore insert the USB Stick and run Sophos.bat when it is completed run VundoFix.exe. When the PC reboots start in Safe Mode again and run Spybot.

Download Sophos and the latest IDE Files. Install it and extract the IDE files to the C:\SAV32CLI folder.

Copy and paste the below two lines into Notepad and save the file to the USB Stick as sophos.bat, it will scan and remove.


VundoFix is a freeware removal tool for many of the known variants of Trojan.Vundo, Trojan.Conhook and other similar infections.


Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's finished scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

Try Nero again if it doesn't work reinstall it. Also download and install CCleaner to tidy up your Registry. Let it run through until there are no errors left.

More info on Buffer Overrrun....

Error displaying Buffer Overrun Error.

Basically, the problem is that there are A NUMBER OF VIRUSES on your computer, they are mostly spyware, and are part of a virus group called VUNDO.

These viruses are not potentially harmul, they are basic spyware which are over rulling your command to your camputer.

Obvious signs of this are:
- A massive number of pop-ups stating that you should download a free spyware check. DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT OPENING ONE OF THESE, AS THESE ARE THE VIRUSES ITSELF TRYING TO INPUT MORE INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
-Errors stating that you have a virus.
-Do Not Bother Using AVG or AVAST anti-virus to find viruses mentioned. these viruses are 2008 viruses and will not be detected by a standard update of your old anti virus.

Buffer overrun attack is a very common attack utilized by hackers. This type of attack is not new. This attack utilizes poor coding practices in C and C++ code, with the handling of string functions. The following code is an example of a buffer overrun.

void myMethod(char * pStr) {
char pBuff[10];
int nCount = 0;

strcpy(pBuff, pStr);

void foo()
The input pStr is of an unknown size. The string copy is unsafe. If the string (pStr) is greater then 10 characters, then the buffer (pBuff) starts to bleed into nCount and the method foo. The buffer overrun property exploited would allow for the execution of foo by manipulation of the application input.

There are three main actions to resolve the problem. First is to utilize the /GS compile option. This option creates a cookie between the stack overrun and the return address. This allows the system to help prevent buffer overruns, by changing the stack layout. The second action is to use the <strsafe.h> library. This library has buffer overrun safe functions that will help with the detection of buffer overflows. Finally, the last action is to perform extensive code reviews of string functionality and indexes utilized within your application. (If you know how to code, then no problem). :)
Download Spybot:
And run this. Update your anti-virus to a good make of name and then run this.

A couple of pointers ....

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Help Again-This is Insane

Cyclic Redundancy Check (CRC) tends to suggest an error within your optical media - usually a fault in the optical disc itself.

Also, you shouldn't have more than one burning engine installed at the same time on your system - they tend to compete with each other for access to your system areas.

Should you feel the need to uninstall Nero at some point, be advised you require a special uninstaller to fully uninstall Nero.

You can get the Nero uninstaller from here:

Try this, but you will have to get rid of the Nero software on your system

If all goes well then you will know it was Nero causing the problems. Please get back soon after, so that we can give you more pointers to solve your problem.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.
