I think I just answered my own question: "Using Java Web Start technology,
standalone Java software applications can be deployed with a single click
over the network. Java Web Start ensures the most current version of the
application will be deployed, as well as the correct version of the Java
Runtime Environment (JRE). "
That came from the Java site. Right about now - according to that
description - you've got to be asking yourself..."If that's supposed to
ensure most current version, how this guy get zapped?" Ignorance! That's
how! I remember seeing a notice to update and I ignored it... because I
thought it's principally for gamers and I don't want those pop-ups while I'm
reading all those news services. I now understand. I'll keep Java Web Start
and install the latest version of Java now.

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
