I know that I have the smitfraud trojan horse, my problem is this realupd32.exe file. I keep getting prompted that I need that file to open any type of application, including spyware removal (.exe) files. I can't open anything right now other than IE. No freecell, no downloadable virus scans, nothing. Can someone please help me? I am running Windows95. Thank you.

In order to assist you, we need to see the log from an Ad-Aware SE 1.06r1 full system scan.

Important Note! Before performing a scan, be sure that you have the most recent definitions file by using WebUpdate. (Click on the Globe icon, Click connect, Click OK, Click Finish.) At this current point * SE1R50 13.06.2005 * is the most recent definition file.

Ad-Aware SE comes preconfigured with default options so we need you to make only one change. Please deselect "Search for negligible risk entries" as negligible risk entries (MRU's) are not considered to be a threat. This option can be changed when choosing your scan type.

Select "Perform Full System Scan" and press "Next". When the scan has completed, click "Show Logfile".

Please copy/paste the complete log file here using the reply button. Don't quarantine or remove anything at this time, just post a complete logfile. This sometimes takes 2-3 posts to get it all posted. You will know you are at the end when you see the "Summary of this scan" information has been posted.

When you have posted your log here, Team Lavasoft can advise on what to do next.

Please post back if you have any questions or other problems.


Good luck

Andy

I'd like to be able to download Ad-Aware but my pc refuses to open any applications. It prompts with the message cannot locate realupd32.exe. How else can I open up files?

If you can now access your Anti Virus program check it for updates and reboot to safe mode ( By tappiing the F8 key on start up ) and run a full system scan with it.

Restart your computer and see if you can download programs now
