    Is the trial version not fully functional? After telling your software to Quarantine first then also to delete the Trojan.Virtumod spyware it keeps coming back as if it was never dealt with properly. Please advise. Is there a special procedure I must undertake to eradicate this spyware?

    Try to disable system restore:

    You must be logged in as an Administrator to do this. If you are not logged in as an Administrator, the System Restore tab will not be displayed.
    Turning off System Restore will clear out all previous restore points.

    To turn off Windows XP System Restore:

    NOTE: These instructions assume that you are using the default Windows XP Start Menu and have not changed to the Classic Start menu. To re-enable the default menu, right-click Start, click Properties, click Start menu (not Classic) and then click OK.

    1. Click Start.
    2. Right-click the My Computer icon, and then click Properties.
    3. Click the System Restore tab.
    4. Check "Turn off System Restore"
    5. Click Apply.
    6. When turning off System Restore, the existing restore points will be deleted. Click Yes to do this.
    7. Click OK, reboot and download VundoFix

    Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
    Put a check next to Run VundoFix as a task.
    You will receive a message saying vundofix will close and re-open in a minute or less. Click OK
    When VundoFix re-opens, click the Scan for Vundo button.
    Once it's done 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 shutdown your computer, click OK.
    Turn your computer back on.

    Update ewido and run a new complete scan, see if this fixes it, if it does then you can reenable system restore.
