Now, this problem is not on my computer, but it is on my buddies computer and I am not currently at his house. However I have been over there and checked out what was going on and I got nowhere with it.
Currently I cannot get IE to run on his computer because when you click the shortcut or the actual target it says the same thing. Something like: either the file has been moved or dosent exist OR you donot have clearence to access this file.
The larger problem however is the blue background that says an error has occured in IE and it is called Trojan-spy.HTML.smitfraud.c. When I first got onto his computer his desktop would load and all of the Icons were present so ofcourse thinking this was a "normal" virus/spyware/Trojan I ran the gauntlent of spyware programs. (Norton,AdAware,Microsoft AntiSpyware) When I ran these programs I found a few threats and deleted them (to get some of them I had boot into safe mode) however when I rebooted in normal mode I found that I had some how made something worse. Because when windows restarted I didn't get windows explorer. I remember the name of the two main file that I deleted, and they were: SMSSU.EXE and Tmntsrv32.EXE and were both located in C:/windows/system32 folder.
Because I am not able to access the internet from his house I was hoping that someone could give me some general information on what to do to remove this threat and if there are any programs that might be able to help me.
I am at the end of my freshman year of an Information Technology degree so I have about that much technological knowledge, if that will help you to know what level I am on compared to you smart people.
Thanks a lot to anyone who can help me with this problem
