Hello. Im totally new here, but I surfed the forum alot becosue i also got this takeover.

I really didnt do like alot of people said. but I did run hijackthis and a friednd looked at it at told me what to remove.

I got it all away but still my desktop was taken over. It flashed from balck to white.. I opend up register lite, found MORE stuff that regedit didnt find, about qp.exe and that exe

also found desktop.html

I set the values to 0 and rebooted. still desktop blinking, but beach to witeh.. So i right clicked on desktop, all stuff was back, but the change of wallpaper wasnt visual.

I then saw under activ desktop, a "securety.." something, removed it and all was back to normal.

Im writing this becouse some might not find all the stuff you say, what i understod is that this takeover changes from PC to PC some bit.

I just hope my reply might help others who have removed all the stuff but still desktop isnt working.

Thanks for al the help, coudlnt have done it without you.

mdm,
No, actually, this infection does pretty much the same thing to computer ranging from 95 to XP...I designed the fix so I know what I'm talking about :tazz: If you don't follow all of the directions, then no it won't work like it's supposed to. Also, if you have separate infections besides just the smitfraud then you'll have other problems. ;)

Exotic Sweets - you may want to go here:

C:\Windows\System32

Then look to see if any icons are still present in the system32 folder. Here are some examples:

casino.ico
date.ico
games.ico
mobile.ico
network.ico
pharm.ico
pharm2.ico
scanner.ico
spam.ico
spyware.ico

If any are there, delete them.

Let me take a look at your log to make sure there isn't anything else that needs to go! BRB! :tazz:

R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.newgenlook.info/ad/ad0058/
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\SearchURL,(Default) = http://red.clientapp...//www.yahoo.com


Post one more HiJackThis log for me. :tazz:

HIGHLY Recommend downloading XP Service Pack 2. Click on this link and click on "Express Install (Recommended)":

http://v5.windowsupd...t.aspx?ln=en-us

Congratulations your log is clean! Great job on the clean up :tazz:

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Ewido Security Suite <= Protection against Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware, and Keyloggers.

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneLabs.
