  • I suspect your computer is still infected. I suggest contacting support for help with malware removal. How to reach support - http://forums.microsoft.com/WindowsOneCare/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2421771&SiteID=2

  • There have been a number of reports on the net today in regard to Microsoft's detection of Trojan Win32/Vundo.gen!R.  Was that the detected virus by any chance?  If it was, then in addition to Jim's recommendation, I'd also send a copy of the detected file to Virus Total for a second opinion: http://www.virustotal.com/  Although it could also be the result of more accurate detection signatures in both WLOC and Defender.
