Hello, My internet main page is some javascript redirector security warning and my main screen on the computer has a spyware warning selling RazeSpyware.
Any help getting rid of these would be much appreciated. I have run e-wido, spybot and CWShredder. Here is my HJT log. Show hidden files was turned on. Thanks.

I did everything you asked but couldn't find the C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdocvn.dii file. The internet home page is back to yahoo but the razespyware warning is still on the main screen. Also had a runtime error when the computer rebooted into normal mode. Here's my HJT log and Ewido log. Thanks.

Hi tay,

Runtime error is quite a generic error !! That means that we know that there is a problem but no idea what the exact problem is.

Can you check as to whether all the programs you installed are working properly ??? In case some of the program is not running / gives some error, let me know about it.

Nope, it's still there. I did a little research on razespyware and it appears to be a legitimate product. I'm trying to find an email address to contact them but no luck so far. I can click on the banner to download the product. I am considering doing this but am afraid of what may happen. What do you think? Thanks.

Hi tay,


Download smitRem.exe and save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the file to extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
Ad-Aware SE Setup
Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.

The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.

Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

Reboot back into Windows and post a new HijackThis Log with the contents of the smitfiles.txt log by using Add Reply.
