As you will know from reading this blog Virtumonde has been around since 2004.  This Trojan virus is always mutating and changing to avoid detection.  It does seem that now when people are infected with Virtumonde they also are being infected with root kits.  This is a very big deal as rootkits are some of the hardest infections to remove.

On this site you will notice we do recommend using Spyware Doctor with Antivirus as it’s one of the only security suits that can remove virtumonde.  It is very important for those that end up purchasing this program that they go to the settings and click the check box to “Scan for hidden Rookits”.  This will help Spyware Doctor with Antivirus not only fully remove virtumonde but also clean any of the hidden rootkits out.

As always we do recommend following out Expert Removal guide located on top.  This will help give you an action plan for removing this threat.  As well if you are in over your head and need an expert we suggest using www.pcninja.com.  This is a U.S. based computer repair company that can remote into your computer and fully remove all viruses and Trojans or you don’t pay a cent.  The best part is it’s about half the cost of taking your computer to a shop and a whole lot cheaper then calling in a tech.  This is a very small company and they have a total of 3 workers.  Mark, Ryan and Jason.  All three are great to work with.  I have used them many times before when I am too busy to clean clients computers myself.
