Hi there! I think I mis-posted this at first in Windows 98 forum so I moved it here. I have a laptop running Windows 98 as our extra computer for the family room area (on a wireless network). My husband was surfing the net last night and was infected with trojan-spy.html.smitfraud.c. It had the black box with the "WARNING" message and all that superimposed over our desktop. I came online and found a great resource page here and went through the steps suggested, ran virus scan (had to do the Trend Micro one because I could not install AVG for some reason, nothing found though), downloaded lots of utilities the post said to, etc. I went to run HJT again to post the log file for further help. When I tried to open the log file, the computer froze. I tried to ctl alt del to close out whatever was not responding, nothing worked. I turned the computer off by doing another ctl alt del and now it will not even come back on, nothing.

HELP!! Did I kill it??

Thanks so much.
