Do you have anti-virus software?

Well it sounds as if you have some form of Windows installed

But I don't have a clue which one it is but from previous experience once the Task Manager & Control Panel no longer work I have found it easier to use a utility like Boot & Nuke to wipe the HDD and then reinstall Windows.

You will have to import your Settings & Data from your Backup to finish the rebuild of the computer. You can download Boot & Nuke free from here to wipe the drive so nothing will return on the next install.

Sounds like Winfixer

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

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 Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 and install it. Update it.

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.

Also download and install CCleaner to tidy up your Registry. Let it run through until there are no errors left.

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