    Helllllp! My computer got infected with a trojan called Vundo and my Norton
    AntiVirus program keeps popping up the alert message telling me my comp is
    infected (it won't go away). Norton can't repair it, can't quarantine it, and
    can't delete it. The file is unaccessable. It won't even let me into windows
    safe mode to delete it. This thing is crazy! Whoever created this thing
    really knew what they were doing! But I need help. I've tried everything that
    I can think of to get this thing off here. I'm just happy it's just a trojan
    that drops adware and not a malicious one. But it is still
    annoying--especially when I can't get the alert message to go away (it's
    obstructing my view of the comp screen). If anyone knows what I can do to
    save my computer, please help me!

    Thanks!

    Hi...My computer also has been attached by Vundo.....I downloaded the tool
    from Symantec that is supposed to remove it....but it doesn't. Have tried it
    several times. And, yes, it it very annoying that the Norton Virus Alert
    will not go away....
    Any one have any more suggestions???
    Thanks
    Ellen

    Thanks Bryan, I've actually already downloaded that removal tool (I forgot to
    mention it), but it didn't remove the virus. The report it gave was that it
    terminated some processes but it didn't delete any files or correct my
    registry. So, the virus is still infecting my computer. It's as if it is
    re-installing itself or making it so the file it is in cannot be accessed.
    Even after using the removal tool and restarting my comp I still get the
    alert message, and after running Norton again it still says that my comp is
    infected.

    Please, is there anything else that can be done or is all hope lost???

  4. Go to the Norton web site (Symantec, actually) and see if there is a
    separate removal program for this one specific trojan.
