Removing the TrojanVundo virus

Some viruses are not as easy to remove or quarantine as others. If your antivirus program isn't doing its job, site expert Kevin Beaver suggests some alternatives for getting rid of tough viruses.

I have a computer that I have had for a little over a month. It detected two viruses. I ran the Norton antivirus program and got rid of one, but there is still one detected. It says it's a TrojanVundo. I tried to delete it, repair it, and quarantine it. Nothing will work. What can I do?
You can download and run Symantec's removal tool. If this doesn't work, there are other solutions on the Internet -- such as the steps posted at Geeks to Go -- but use any custom registry hacks and removal tools at your own risk.
