I have an IBM ThinkPad (T42) running Windows XP Professional and have the following message on my screen: Fatal error in IE @0028:c0011e36 in VXD VMM<01>+00010e36 caused by trojan-spy.html.smitfraud.c As a result, when starting my computer I cannot get to the desktop, start, etc. Therefore, I can't download any fix. I do, however have a desktop computer that I am using to post this message and can download to a floppy. Please help so I can start using my ThinkPad again.

Welcome Chuck Maass to Geeks to Go!

Please download the latest version of HiJack This to a floppy and put in on your Thinkpad. Click here to download the latest version (1.99.1).

Please save it in a permanent folder (such as C:\HJT). This is to ensure that backups are saved and accessible in the event you should need it. Follow the instructions below if you are unsure how to save it in a permanent folder:1.) Click on the link to download HiJackThis.exe.
2.) When it pulls up the box (for you to pick a location to save the file), click on the pulldown menu and select "[C:]".
3.) Click on the button to "create new folder" and name the folder HiJackThis
4.) Double click on the folder you just made (to go into the folder) and click "save" on the bottom of the box.
Open HijackThis. Choose 'scan and save log' and post back in this topic using 'add reply'.

As there has been no reply from the original poster for more than two weeks this topic is now closed.

If you are the original poster and still need assistance, please send me a PM.
