Vundo is a very harmful and widely spread Trojan that makes your computer security system a useless one. Once the malicious tool enters your computer you will lose your control on the computer. You cannot even access the windows task manager and registry editor, which is very necessary if you want to remove the Vundo Trojan completely. The Trojan will run a complete scan of the computer after it installs itself in your computer system. This scan is totally bogus. The results generated by this scan are also false. Hence, do not trust the Vundo in any case.
