My laptop, a Sony Vaio running Windows XP, has been infected by Trojan-Spy.HTML.SmitFraud.c

I first noticed that something was wrong when my computer started slowing down and I began getting pop-ups. I ran Ad-aware and found around 240 (!) new objects. I immediately tried to quarantine and delete them. Once my status reached "Deleting Objects", though, all of my other open windows closed, an IE window to an advertisement opened up, then closed, and then an icon appeared on my desktop as though a program had been installed. My wallpaper went blue and displayed the following message in the center of it:

A fatal error in IE has occurred at 0028:C0011E36 in VXD VMM<01> + 00010E6.
Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.SmitFraud.c

*System cannot function in normal mode.
Please check you security settings
*Scan your PC with any available antivirus/antispyware
remover program to fix the problem

My comp then slowed down to the point where I couldn't open anything at all. I could just move the mouse around, clicking hopelessly. I couldn't even open the start menu to do a proper restart, let alone open up Ad-aware again to try to fix the problem. Being the nigh-computer-illiterate n00b that I am, I turned off the computer, then turned it on again.

Once Windows came back up, the background still displayed the same error message, and shortly after Windows started up, I would be unable to open anything or even get the Start menu opened to restart. I was able to get Ad-aware open, but when I tried to scan, it just sat at 0% scanned.

I've been messing around with it all night, going in and out of safe mode, and I've restored some manner of operation to the computer. However, I still cannot run a system scan in Ad-aware outside of safe mode (although the program does open), and I cannot open Task Manager or an IE window outside of safe mode, so I can't yet get online with that computer.

I've found and deleted some of the files placed on my computer by the Trojan that weren't removed by Ad-aware when I ran it in safe mode (eliminating about 240 objects), and I installed and ran the latest version of HijackThis from a CD-RW. Here's my log as of five minutes ago.

Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go.

I am UKBiker and will be helping you with this log.

Lets start out with some general scans and see if we cant clean things up a little.

+++++ Step 1 +++++

Please download Ewido security suite it is a trial version of the program.
  • Install Ewido security suite
  • Launch Ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.
  • The program will prompt you to update click the OK button
  • The program will now go to the main screen
You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.
  • On the left hand side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start
The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
Once the updates are installed do the following:
  • Click on scanner
  • Make sure the following boxes are checked before scanning:
    • Binder
    • Crypter
    • Archives
  • Click on Start Scan
  • Let the program scan the machine
While the scan is in progress you will be prompted to clean files, click OK

Once the scan has completed, there will be a button located on the bottom of the screen named Save report
  • Click Save report
  • Save the report to your desktop
+++++ Step 2 +++++

Please run an on-line virus scan at Kaspersky OnLine Scan or if that doesnt work, you can use TrendMicro or BitDefender. (Please post the results of the scan(s) in your next reply)

+++++ Step 3 +++++

After that, I will need to see two different logs from HiJackThis. The first is the normal log like you posted here. To get the other one, follow these directions.

Open HijackThis, click Config, click Misc Tools
Click "Open Uninstall Manager"
Click "Save List" (generates uninstall_list.txt)
Click Save, copy and paste the results in your next post.

Post back with those logs and we can continue from there.

If you have recieved help elsewhere or no longer need our assistance, please let us know.
