How to Remove virtumonde completely from your computer

Virtumonde, TrojanSpy.Win32.Agent.I, is a virus which is hard to remove from a system once infected. Virtumonde can completely or partially break your system while stop the services related to Google and facebook.

Virtumonde :
This virus is reported to record your keystrokes and randomly displays advertisements. This virtumonde.c Trojan will create a DLL (Dynamic Link Library) to facilitate the recording of your keystrokes and communicates with a website located on the internet.

Virtumonde.C attaches to explorer.exe, goes memory resident and verifies that it's running (the virus that is). If for some reason Virtumonde.c is stopped, the memory resident program will fire it back up.

The virus also writes to cookies on the infected computer and may visit more than one internet site. The part that makes VirtuMonde.c tricky is that it's a memory resident and writes to a file that spyware removal programs can't erase.

How I removed Virtumonde Completely from My System

Most reputed virus scanners detects and removes only a part of virtumonde variations, while allowing other parts to left within the system. My computer infected with virtumonde several times, I have scanned the computer using latest updated Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. But it not succeed in removing virtumonde completely.
Then I tried Spyware Doctor and it also removed only some parts of virtumonde.
Finally I take up with the Spybot. Spybot Search and Destroy scans the computer and removes the parts left by kaspersky and Spyware Doctor.
