Like many others on this forum, I got the Trojan-Spy.HTML.smitfraud.c virus thing with the blue screen and security warning. I installed Hijack this and posted the log on another post, and followed several other recquired steps. I posted earlier about it and periodically I checked back and still no one responded to my posts. Since I received no help, I tried to fix it myself (bad idea) and I think I just made things worse. Eventually I got so frustrated with it that I turned it off.

When I tried to start it up, it went to a black screen and I can't get anywhere from there. Someone told me to put in a system restore CD and it would help to leave it in and restart it. I did, and it ended up corrupting basically everything. I was able to open AOL, and from there I tried to open several other programs but I got an error message saying that the file was corrupted and I need to reinstall it..

Should I just do a full system restore? Or will that not do anything? I really need help with this because it's a fairly new computer and I can't afford to purchase a new one, or is that my only alternative??

Please help, I'm desperate for some kind of solution since I haven't gotten anything from anyone.
