Win32 Adware Information
Win32 Adware is a made-up Trojan name used to threaten and trick users into buying the rogue anti-spyware application XP-Guard. Once the user installs the video codec, their computer gets infected with Win32 Adware.
Your PC then displays false warning messages stating “Your browser was hijacked by Win32/Adware.Virtumonde.” Then as you may have guessed, they recommend that you download XP-Guard or some other rogue anti-spyware program. This will only make matters worse, as XP-Guard will expose your PC to more security threats.
Win32/adware.virtumonde virus (or Vundo) is a Trojan horse virus that infects your system by going through Java. Please don’t delete Java; that’s not the problem. In most cases, the virus attaches itself to system using BHOs and DLL files attacked to Winlogon and Explorer.exe to create multiple pop-up advertisements, including the fake warnings. You may have also noticed, if you check your Windows/System 32 directory, that there are files with strange names. This is another sign that your PC is infected.
