My pc has been invaded by Trojan_spy.html.smitfraud.c. I ran several different spyware programs and only spy ferret found it. I paid $40 to register with them to remove it. When I scan the pc with spy ferret, Trojan no longer comes up, but I'm still left with the blue screen and the warning of the security breech.

How can I get rid of this? If you can explain in layman's terms, I'd appreciate it.

Hi and welcome Jayp

Please right-click: HERE and go to Save As (in Internet Explorer it's "Save Target As") in order to download smitfraud reg file. Save it to your desktop.

Locate "smitfraud.reg" on your desktop and double-click it. When asked if you want to merge with the registry, click YES. Wait for the "merged successfully" prompt


reboot let us know if you have your desktop back

Mind if we have a look at a HJT log just to be sure,

Please go Here and unzip the newest version of HJT into a new dedicated folder,
Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it hjt. Unzip HijackThis into this folder. Launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log
This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.
Most things are harmless and needed so don't make any changes.
post a log here please.
