Spybot and Virtumonde?

I mentioned to my son that my last scan with Spybot was VERY slow; with 344,176 items to scan it had only reached 135,000 after 1 hour and 45 minutes!
He suggested I uninstall, then reinstall Spybot.
This made things a lot better, it went to 135,000 items scanned in 45 minutes. However, it seemed to hang forever over files called 'Virtumonde' - but did not flag them as spyware. Are they spyware? If so, is there a quick, easy, simple way to get rid of them?
Would appreciate any help.

Regards,
Tristar

Thank you.

Make sure you're downloading VundoFix and
VirtumundoBegone (not Stopzilla) and follow the instructions exactly, tristar.
