Hi.
I was surfing online when my antivirus send a message saying my laptop had been infected, constally a message would pop up saying that my windows was in danger and my personal information could easyly be accessed for ex: e-mail, credit card information. Well I though was a windows message untill i realized that was the virus acting and sending a message where would make me thing and download spyware, but before any decitions i realized everytime i would click on the message that would pop up, would send me to the www.spyeye.com it did checked online and gave a bunch o virus that had been installed to the laptop, i start to run my own spaware "Ad-aware SE personal" i got a feel a whole list of spyware and ad ware, they were removed, than i ran Spybot - Search & Destroy it did find a few more ,but there is one called Smitfroud-c. that can't be removed, it send a message saying that such a file it is still working or in memory, also asking to allow spybot to start once i reboot my pc, but everytime i restart the pc, it still won't delete the virus.
I downloaded and ran Microsoft antiSpyware and ewido anti-virus, both has found adware most of the time i run it.

I have also done a disk clean up, cookies deleted, website address cleaned.

But I can't get to delete the Smitfroud-c.

What else should i be doing to remove this virus, any information will be appriciated.

Thanks
Ray
