Windows 7: Just had to share this infected gem

Win7 Home Premium 64x

Lol thanks Corrine, I haven't seen Vundo in a while. Last time I cleaned it from a comp, VundoFix was still up-to-date. I was looking today after posting to see if MSE and newer programs do the same thing VundoFix does, but had no luck in finding the info so far.

Thanks for the heads up.

FYI, Atri hasn't updated Vundofix in a long time -- probably since he started working for Lavasoft, which he has since left to work for Prevx.

Best course of action is uninstalling all old versions of Java and installing the latest version (although it too has issues -- see Serious New Java Flaw Affects All Versions of Windows) and scanning with MBAM.
I always recommend following up with a SAS scan as well. There have been instances where it picked up a few things that MBAM did not and vice versa.
