With the Virtumonde Trojan still in full swing is seems that many free tools in the past that we recommended have not been updated in several months and do not address the newer strains of Virtumonde.  The two past free tools we also had people download were vundofix.exe and Spybot Search and Destroy.  While both of these are still great tools to use to fight of Virtumonde they will no longer get the job done to fully remove not only Virtumonde but the several other virus strains like Smitfraud, Zlob and Vundo that come down with this trojan.

We can still confirm that the latest Spyware Doctor with Antivirus still does the best job aat not only removing Virtumonde but also is a must have to protect your computer so you do not get infected again.  The makers of this software over at www.pctools.com is still offering free support so if you run into issue you they can help you fully remove this threat.  Chances are you will not need their support as this is a very easy program to use.

For those that are not tech savvy at all we suggest using the pros at www.pcninja.com.  This is by far our favorite virus removal company.  They are based in the US and will 100% remove all threats on your computer in a very short time.  These guys make it seem too easy and offer very competitive rates.

Some other programs you can use in adition to Spyware Doctor with Antivirus to help combat Virtumonde.  Leep in mind that none of the below provide active protection against viruses and spyware except Spyware Doctor with Antivirus.

Spybot Search and Destroy:  Free client that works to help remove many threats.  Does not fully remove Virtumonde but can be very helpful

Vundofix.exe:  Designed just for Vundo/Virtumonde.  Does not work as well as it used to because most of the Virtumonde traces have mutated to different names.  Still it may find parts of the Virtumonde strain

Malwarebytes: Not a bad program for being free.  Often times this will find close to 60-70 percent of Virtumonde on the first scan

AS Always we are still recommened Spyware Doctor with Antivirus as a permanent fix to not only fully remove Virtumonde but also to keep your computer from getting re-infected.  This is good stuff people!!!
