When I run spybot search and destroy it comes up Smitfraud-C and the description is registry change. When I try to remove it it comes up error that it is in the memory and to restart my computer and that does absolutely nothing . Any ideas?

Hi brady12! Welcome to G2G!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

I ran a global scanning from adware away and I removed 2 trojans and 4 malware objects. I ran the ss&d and Smitfraud_C still comes up. I have avg and have ran that and nothing comes up. I do windows,adware,ss&d and avg updates regular.When I click on smitfraud it shows HKEY_USERS and the entry also shows registry change.

Like I said in my previous post, if you are still having problems after doing all of the self-help tools, then please post a HijackThis log in the Malware Forum.

brady12,

Please DO NOT run the tool suggested by spike_hacker_inc. ONLY USE THESE PROGRAMS WHEN TOLD TO BY A MALWARE EXPERT. USING PROGRAMS THAT YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT WITHOUT THE PROPER GUIDANCE WILL ONLY CAUSE MORE PROBLEMS ON YOUR SYSTEM.

spike_hacker_inc,

Please DO NOT post any more malware related links in the OS forum. You are only a Geek In Training, and therefore do not have the knowledge and know-how on what these programs really do and how they work.
