I have been hit by the Smit Virus. I have completed the following steps-
In Safe Mode
-Scanned with HJT and Deleted the "about:??" entries
- Ran smitRem and disk cleanup (Log is attached)
- Full system scan with Ad-Aware
- Full System Scan with Spybot
- Full System Scan with Ewido (Log is attached)
- Double checked Display Web settings
Reboot to Normal Mode
- Complete Panda ActiveScan, This didn't seem to work correctly. It seems that something has gotten into the ActiveX portion of Internet Explorer. ( I am using Firefox right now).
- Scanned and Log with HJT (Log is Attached)

I would appreciate anyones input on letting me know exactly where I am at right now and the proper steps to take next.
