Vundo, Abetear won't go away

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My main anti virus client is Zone Alarm. The signatures are always up to
date. For the last couple weeks, the program has found & treated
multiple instances of "vundo", abetear", & sometimes "darksma". The
program always says they have been treated and no further action is
neccessary, But it continues, and continues. As a result, I have
run the "Multi AV command line utility" repeatedly both in safe &
regular mode. The various signatures for "Sophos", "Trend", "Kaspersy"
etc all update each time, but the problem continues. I have also run the
"Vundo Fix" utility, that didn't find anything, but then the
Zone Alarm window pops up w/ addition instances, all being treated, but
it just won't go away.
I have had to boot to "last known good config..." twice, & use restore
points several times just to boot up. The only other symptom, is the web
browser will open extra windows when left alone....sometimes a 404, &
sometimes "sexbuddies" in the address bar & a script error on the page.
