Specs: Windows XP, 600
My computer back ground screen is white and message displays as "

Spyware detected on your computer and below
warning:win32/adware.virtumonde detected on your computer
warning:win32/privacy remover M64 detected on your computer

please activate antivirus or software to clean your computer

I tried to download Microsoft security essentials but it's not allowing me download or even the file from email attachment. Also I tried to log on as windows starts safe mode networking but I couldn't access the internet to download. This virus is blocking everything. I got some valuable files in the computer ( C: drive ) which is not replacable. I don't go to any kind of crap website so I don't know how this virus i got it. But I need urgent help to remove it. I will really appreciate if anyone can advise what I need to do to remove this crap without damaging the file. This is Dell Dimension 2000 and I got in 2004 but some reason it never recognise the pen drive although it got USB port.

More bad advice by you.


Look at the first link below to learn about virtumonde.

Try downloading Microsoft Security Essentials to a flash or optical drive on the computer you are currently using. Install from that device to the infected computer. Run Windows in safe mode. Get Essentials from the second link below. Teh third link is to a Google search about virtumode. Lots of help there.




The link below deals with privacy remover 64.


If you are unsuccessful with getting rid of these infections then we can help you save your personal files. I know you don't want to hear this right now, but you should always maintain at least TWO copies of any files you want to keep.
