    If your current AntiVirus solution is not working against the aforesaid viruses then why dont you switch to some other AntiVirus solutions.
    Also somehow if you have got the procedure to remove these viruses, than how often would you keep on repairing these viruses.

    There are lot of cheap and better options are available these days:
    As per toptenreviews.com rankings:
    #1 BitDefender Antivirus
    #2 Kaspersky Anti-Virus
    #3 Webroot Antivirus

    Go for Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 as you will most often find it in top three and it is too cheap.
    Only 450~500 Rs. for 3 Users for 1 Year.
    Intel Core i7 975 Extreme Edition
    ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution MainBoard
    Corsair Dominator 2x2GB DDR3 @ 1800 MHz
    XFX nVidia GF GTX 295
    Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 500GB
    CoolerMaster Extreme 600W PSU

    You got a Win32 Vitro, you say? That virus, for your information, was made by the same people who coded the virut series of viruses. That virus was not made by any amateur! They knew what they were writing. Anyhow, forget about junkpoly for now. This one requires more attention.
    If you've got XP, the following might help:-
    The only way I know of getting rid of this virus is trying to rebuild the OS using Backups. Follow the steps provided in the pages you get after you follow the following link:-
    No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild Option:http://www.informationweek.com/news/windows/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=189400897

    This should automatically get rid of the win32 junkpoly.

    I have a machine badly infected with this virus. Re-installing Windows using the repair option is of little use since the .exe files associated with other installed software , MS-Office or whatever will remain infected and promptly re-infect all Windows System files when activated. As yet no AV Company seems to have a solution and the only way I have found to get round the problem is to save all documents to a removable drive , reformat the hard drive and do a clean install of Windows followed by a re-installation of all software previously installed on the machine. Just about as big a drag as you can imagine but no alternative as far as I can see. I've been working in computing a long time and this is far and away the worst virus I have ever come across , I'm amazed that Google doesn't have thousands of articles on it by now but it won't be too long before they do appear I suspect.

    The problem does not lie with detection or removal of the virus , Avast does a good job of doing this , the snag is that since the majoriy of infected files are Windows executables such as notepad.exe , login.scr etc. etc. after the AV has executed and deleted infected files the computer will not run ! . Until a REPAIR of infected files without deleting is developed the virus remains an absolute killer.

    You can replace all the executable files with original xp(which you have installed in your system),in windows,system32 and all the folders.In fact replace all the *.exe files with your safe boot.ie you have to start computer in safe boot.
    and do not run any exe files till full computer scan.
