The ads can take several forms, including pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, or links embedded within web pages or parts of the Windows interface.

Category Adware (General)
Category Description Adware, also known as advertising software, displays third-party advertising on the computer. The ads can take several forms, including pop-ups, pop-unders, banners, or links embedded within web pages or parts of the Windows interface. Some adware advertising might consists of text ads shown within the application itself or within side bars, search bars, and search results. Adware is often contextually or behaviorally based and tracks browsing habits in order to display ads that are meant to be relevant to the user.
Level Elevated
Level Description Elevated risks are typically installed without adequate notice and consent, and may make unwanted changes to your system, such as reconfiguring your browser's homepage and search settings. These risks may install advertising-related add-ons, including toolbars and search bars, or insert advertising-related components into the Winsock Layered Service Provider chain. These new add-ons and components may block or redirect your preferred network connections, and can negatively impact your computer's performance and stability. Elevated risks may also collect, transmit, and share potentially sensitive data without adequate notice and consent.
Advice Type Remove
Description Virtumonde is an adware program that displays pop-up advertisements on the desktop. Virtumonde also downloads other software from various remote servers.
Add. Description There are many variants of Virtumonde, some with trojan-like behaviors including downloading other software without notice and consent, transmitting information to remote servers without notice and consent, and lowering system security on the infected machine. Some Virtumonde variants are known to resist removal.
Author Virtumonde
Author URL virtumonde.com
Release Date
Last updated on Jan 3 2009

The program periodically makes an HTTP connection to virtumonde.com, on port 80 or 8081, to download commands and popup advertisements - ideally, you need to close these ports if they are open on your system. What antivirus do you use??

Hardly any of the programs out there will remove it

The ONLY way to do it properly, is to physically do it yourself in Windows SAFE mode
