My friend has this rogue program called winspywareprotect. I have tried everything to remove it including Smitfaud. I have closed sys restore, went into the registry everywhere. When I boot out of safemode after using smitfraud it is still there but I can't find traces anywhere. Need some help here Thanks

Thanks, I had forgot about Hijack this. I just ran the program and found the program and have removed it.. I have rebooted and find no trace of it now. I will turn on the windows restore again. Thanks again .Picky

Picky,
It's a good idea for the future to NEVER turn OFF the System restore, in spite of bad advise by AntiVirus makers, etc.
If something goes wrong, it's better to have an infected System Restore than None at all.

Askey127, That is really good advice. I have never really thought of it that way. I have restored hundreds of systems and have been lucky. I guess you stand to loose allot more that a virus. The only problem I see is the virus duplicating in system restore. Thanks Bruce
