I had the same problem a few weeks ago,how it came about i do not know, my Avast anti-virus did not detect the attack until it was to late,by which time more infections got into computer,Virtumonde and others,my anti-virus could not cope,spybot failed. I almost turned grey with worry on how i could clean this. In the end it deleted my C:/ drive letter. I tried a back up,but that failed as well. In the end i was forced to reinstall everything. And to make sure i was clear of threats,i did an hijack this scan and posted it to malware removal forum. I got some excellent help,and i trust them to get me back to normal. Reply i got, gave me some tools, that are specific to my problem. Fingers crossed it will not happen again. I have installed anti-malware software from malwarebytes and keep it upto date,i have spybot search and destroy and avast anti-virus software,including host files protection. I use windows XP SP3,Ie7,at time i was using ashampoo firewall,never again,i now have Zone alarm.
If you need help and can access internet safely, then give the malware removal forum a try as well,as posting on this forum.
