Hi,

I was searching the web for a high school band competition schedule and when I left the web, I realized that a lot of junk had infiltrated my system. My Internet Explorer browser has been hijacked to a spyware site (I can't reset my homepage), I keep getting pop-ups, even when I'm not on the web,a yellow triangle pops onto my system tray telling me i have a dangerous PSW.X-vir trojan. If I click onto it a web site comes on for me to buy & download spy software. I did a live update this morning (Norton) and this afternoon I have about 700 items infecting my pc (spysherrif, maxsearch, quake, DollarRevue, adclicker). Help, please.

Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) to your Desktop.
http://siri.urz.free...mitfraudFix.zip
Extract all the files to your Destop. A folder named SmitfraudFix will be created on your Desktop.


You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
  • Choose your usual account.
Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart it into Normal Windows.
A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt
Post back a fresh HJT log as well please

Warning : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.
