Yesterday I was online, then AOL crashed, stopping me from closing it, so I restarted the PC. When it loaded the background was a blue screen with a message about a "Trojan-Spy" called "smitfraud". It suggested I run my anti-virus and spyware removers so I ran Norton, Spybot, and Adaware. Apart from normal stuff like Backweb and Kazaa nothing came up. The blue screen is still there and I have no idea what to do. Help?! Is this a damaging virus or just an annoyance? Either way, how do I get rid of it?

The first thing is to post your HijackThis log.

This bug is caused by a file wp.exe. You will see him down in the O4 entries.


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [WindowsFY] C:\wp.exe

Terminate the process . You can use HijackThis, Config, Misc Tools, Open Process Manager, find and highlight the C:\wp.exe and Kill Process then Back and Scan and then check his box and Fix Checked. That still leaves a problem in your registry.

Start, Run, regedit, OK to bring up the regedit program.

find HKey_Current_User->Software ->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion>policies (Hit the + sign in front of each Key as you find them. That will open up the subkeys.)

Under Policies is usually an entry named System. If you find it highlight it and press the Delete key. Then OK. Close the program and reboot.

Start, Control Panel, Display (Properties). This should bring up Display Properties/Background. Change the wallpaper to something else and Apply. You may also need to select Web and uncheck the box where it says View My Active Desktop as a web page. OK

Could you tell me how to use HiJackThis? I've never used something like this before and I heard that it's easy to accidentally delete important data, etc.

It's only dangerous if you randomly start checking and Fix Checked stuff. Just run it and let it save a log. Then note where it save the log and attach it to your post or just copy and paste the log to your post and I will tell you what to do next.

Get a copy of winsockxpfix.exe before you do anything. This is just a safety
item in case you can't get on the internet afterwards. You just run it and
things should work OK after it reboots your system.

http://www.iup.edu/h...net/winfix.shtm



Also download and install ccleaner.exe from http://www.ccleaner.com. Don't let
it clean anything yet.


Now shutdown and reboot into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key when you see the PC
maker's logo.
Keep tapping until it tells you it is going to Safe Mode or you see the Safe
Mode menu. Select the top option.

Run HijackThis and just do a Scan only. Check then Fix
Checked the following:

Wait 60 seconds and repeat the scan. Did any of the above come back? IF so
leave HijackThis up and right click on the clock and select Task Manager. Then
Processes. Find Explorer.exe, right click on it and select End Process. The
desktop will disappear but HijackThis should still be there. IF you don't see
it switch to Applications in Task Manager and highlight it there then press
Switch To or just double click on it. Check and Fix Checked the above again.
Restart Explorer by Task Manager, File, New Task(Run), explorer.exe, OK.



Now run ccleaner.exe. On the first page, uncheck everything but the two lines
that have the word Temporary in them then Run Cleaner.

Now correct the damage:

Start, Run, regedit, OK to bring up the regedit program.

find HKey_Current_User->Software ->Microsoft->Windows->CurrentVersion>policies (Hit the + sign in front of each Key as you find them. That will open up the subkeys.)

Under Policies is usually an entry named System. If you find it highlight it and press the Delete key. Then OK. Close the program and reboot.

Start, Control Panel, Display (Properties). This should bring up Display Properties/Background. Change the wallpaper to something else and Apply. You may also need to select Web and uncheck the box where it says View My Active Desktop as a web page. OK

Run a new hijackthis log and post it.

OK thanks a lot. Will this delete Kazaa itself by the way, or just a program connected to Kazaa?

OK If you still use kazaa you can skip that line but you should know it is full of adware. Didn't know anyone still used it.
