    Default Virtumonde is quarantined, now what?

    Zonealarm keeps alerting me to a virus called Virtumonde, which apparently causes popups, but I haven't had any. I've read that Virtumonde can cause system performance to decrease, so naturally i'd like to remove it, but all the tutorials i read and removal programs i download show nothing because (and i'm just speculating here) Zonealarm has it quarantined, so the infected files don't show up and can't be removed.

    I don't know how virus quarantining works, should i release it from Zonealarm so i can remove it?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite
    Software Version:7.0

    Hi!you can simply remove it but going into quarantine and "delete" it.You go to the antivirus/antispyware tab --> quarantine tab --> quarantine view "antivirus" or "antispyware" --> select it and deleteCheers,Fax

    Oh I forgot to mention, i've deleted it about 10 times now, it keeps coming back.

    It's not that it keeps getting on to my computer, it's a particularly tricky virus to remove, it's hidden in the darkest corners of the registry
