    Hey,
    I also have a related or the same problem. Symantec is giving me the following prompt:

    Scan type: Realtime Protection Scan
    Event: Virus Found!
    Virus name: Trojan.Goldun
    File: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\USERVMEM.DLL
    Location: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32
    Computer: DSYLVESTER
    User: dsylvester
    Action taken: Clean failed : Delete failed : Access denied
    Date found: Monday, December 04, 2006 8:49:46 AM

    I can't find USERVMEM.DLL when I search. When I look for the registry key that Symantec has suggested to delete, I can't find that either.
    Can you help?

    benfranc01 at yahoo.com Thanks!

    When I started my computer this morning, I too found a window from Norton informing me of a virus alert, Trojan.Goldun in the C:\WINDOWS\system32\uservmem.dll and the action taken said: Access to the file was denied. Have you figured out how to fix this? Also, I'm wondering how my computer was infected by it since according to what I've read on this virus, infection occurs via en email and I haven't opened any emails from unknown sources.
