Easily Remove the 188.8.131.52 Trojan.Vundo Browser Hijack Virus infecting your computer with this step by step video guide I created while I was infected.
Your probably wondering that I have been getting back to back viruses since I had a previous virus / spyware removal video "Desktop Tab Missing? How To Restore Display Properties And Missing Desktop Tabs Instantly!" LOL, but 2 viruses in 8 years is not bad LMAO. I should have known better than to give Internet Explorer some heavy use lately without added protection
Are you getting popups in Firefox, Internet Explorer and any other browser you use going to a page that looks similar to "http://184.108.40.206/info.png?"
Do you receive constant pop-ups during internet activity, your system resources grinding to a halt, Windows Explorer crashing, Buffer overruns detected? The bombardment of 220.127.116.11 attacking your browsers!?!?!?!
Latest Webroot, Symantec, & even my favorite Zone Alarm Suite(although it detected the virus and quarantined some of it) antivirus and spyware utilities seem to do nothing to fix this 18.104.22.168 Trojan.Vundo problem??
Well… you are not alone! I too got infected with this virus / malware / spyware that I only knew as 22.214.171.124 due to it being the URL that constantly loads up. Later I found out that it was also more popularly known as the Trojan.Vundo virus. I researched all over from various websites and forums and took all the advice I seen with a sprinkle of my own knowledge and then cooked up this recipe to remove this 126.96.36.199 Trojan.Vundo virus.
Basically what your going to see is real-time(and video editing) of me fixing this problem from start to finish. This will show you how you can get rid of the 188.8.131.52 Trojan.Vundo virus once and for all!

What Is The Vundo Trojan / Virus aka Trojan.Vundo?
Vundo, or the Vundo Trojan (also known as Virtumonde or Virtumondo and sometimes referred to as MS Juan & Trojan.Vundo) is a Trojan horse that is known to cause popups and advertising for rogue antispyware programs, and sporadically other misbehavior including performance degradation and denial of service with some websites including Google.
The most obvious sign of infection are the pop ups. Vundo will cause the infected web browser to pop up advertisements; many of which claim a need for software to fix system "deterioration". The user’s desktop background is changed to the image of an installation window saying there is adware on the computer. The screensaver is also changed to the Blue Screen. When the user tries to change the background and screensaver back to their original by going to the Display Properties, the background and screensaver tabs are missing because their "Hide" values in the Registry were changed to 1. Both the background and screensaver are in the System32 folder, however the screensaver cannot be deleted. Windows automatic updates may also be disabled and it is not possible to turn them back on
Infected DLLs (with randomized names such as "__c00369AB.dat") will be present in the Windows/System32 folder and references to the DLLs will be found in the user’s start up (viewable in MSConfig), registry, and as browser add ons in Internet Explorer.
Depending on the version of the virus the following symptoms may or may not be present:
Vundo may attempt to prevent the user from removing it or otherwise impede its operation, such as by disabling the task manager or Windows registry editor. Some firewalls or antivirus softwares may also be disabled by the virus leaving the system even more vulnerable. Another symptom of Vundo may be the desktop icons will disappear and so will the taskbar and reappear after a short period. This becomes very frustrating if you are trying to run programs or get access to your files as the process gets automatically aborted.
Web access may also be negatively affected. Vundo may cause many websites to be unaccessible; these websites may just hang. The hard drive may start to be constantly accessed by the winlogon process, thus periodic freezes may be experienced.
Symptoms may also include the disabling of Windows Automatic Updates or other web-based services.
