There were 3 Java entries. Two were definitely Java programs for browsers
but I'm not sure I know what the last one is; I haven't removed it. It's
called "Java Web Start", is 2.06 MB, and was last used 4-5-04 (but I'm not
sure how accurate that little tool is 'cause Quicken was last used 6-11-06
but the log says 4-22-05.)
Delete Java Web Start before I download the latest version of Java?

Your version of Sun Java is certainly a vulnerable version. No doubt
about that. There is
a very good chance that is how you got infected.
Go to the control panel applet "Add/Remove Programs" and remove any/all
Sun Java versuions
then download and install version 5 update 7 which is the latest version.
As for HJT. It details Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) and it makes
identifiyting them easy
and the Vundo Trojan/Virtumonde Adware use BHOs.
Now there is always tyhe chance you have a new version that the utilities
I posted are not
aware of. This family of malware morphs reguarly.
Go through the steps I provided, if they don't work then well go from
After you run; VirtumundoBeGone.exe you could post the VBG LOG file
