I have the infection described previously. I have tried removing, and, as others have mentioned, it recurs on reboot.
I read a number of the posts, but they are too complicated for me. Can I please get simple steps?
The first thing I did was download Smitfraud, but although it has placed an icon on my desktop, it won't run. I suspect it is partly because this infection is sucking CPU. OK, so one step at a time, please.

or...if there is a definitive set of instructions for this problem somewhere can you please point me to it.

Hello pamcats, my name is fenzodahl512 and welcome to Geekstogo..

Please have a read at this topic and do all the preliminary steps given.

If you are using Windows Vista, or if you are using XP and already have Service Pack 1a or later, please ignore Step Three: Windows Updates and continue with Step Four: Reboot - Test

It should handle about 70% of your malware problem.. Should the problem still exist, please post a fresh HijackThis log here as shown in the Step Five: Posting a Hijack This Log.. Thank you :)

Regards
