I got Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smithfraud.c on my Win98 machine. For me it behaves badly: Explorer.exe crashes on boot and I am left with no shell and any means to fix the problem. On XP I can bring up command prompt as a new task in Task Manager and run explore.exe again but in 98 it seems you can do it only through shell which is obviously not available.

Have anybody heard about such bad Smithfraud behaviour? What can I do to fix it under such conditions?
