What username did you use on the MWR forum?

Have you had a look around for a backup log from Vundo ?

If a backup log is somewhere on your system,this may be the reason why you cannot delete anything related to Vundo.

Try a search with show hidden files ticked and type vundo.exe and delete all,you may have to delete the backup log first before you can delete anything related to vundo.

If in any doubt,make a system restore point first.

thanks to all, I used the same user name on the mwr forum , went back to it on friday to see if there was a response and couldnt find the post! in the end gave up and did a clean instal of xp, on the bright side the wife had got the "back everything up message" some time ago ,so only a couple of days stuff lost
