    The latest vintage of Trojan Vundo was not being detected or fixed by the previous tool. Give the one below a run if you have this problem.


    If you have the Vundo.B virus there appears to be a couple of key things to do when you run the new Symantec removal tool:

    1. Run the removal tool when you are in the safe mode
    2. Make sure you are disconnected from any network.

    Windows XP

    If Windows XP is the only operating system installed on your computer, booting into Safe Mode with these instructions.
    If the computer is running, shut down Windows, and then turn off the power
    Wait 30 seconds, and then turn the computer on.
    Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
    Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected.
    Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
    When you are finished with all troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

    To use the System Configuration Utility method
    Close all open programs.
    Click Start, Run and type MSCONFIG in the box and click OK
    The System Configuration Utility appears, On the BOOT.INI tab, Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option, and then click OK and Restart your computer when prompted.
    The computer restarts in Safe mode.
    Perform the troubleshooting steps for which you are using Safe Mode.
    When you are finished with troubleshooting in Safe mode, open MSCONFIG again, on the BOOT.INI tab, uncheck "/SAFEBOOT" and click OK to restart your computer
