First: I know virtually nothing about computers.
My computer which runs on XP at work had smitfraud & spyaxe on it as well as spytrooper which took over the internet. I fixed it with Ewido spy remover.
everything seemed ok no pop ups and I got the internet back. Next day though the system seems slow everything was functional. Today I cant seem to access anything, everytime I click on a shortcut to something I need the hour glass icon shows up and the program seems to freeze . I go into safemode to try and work from there and an error comes up" CANNOT FIND /// Fast Hard Lock Driver".
I just realized I cant access anything on the desktop including anti spyware stuff.
Ok a little update. Going through the internet I can find some things on this, but nothing really helpful , so I may have taken this driver out using Ewido. I remember spyware was inbedded in something and Ewido prompted me to have the whole thing taken out.
Drumroll please. The dummy (which happens to be me) has fixed it! I went into safe mode and did a system restore everything came back, Im functional with all the spyware crap. Also anyone who was looking into this and trying to help out no need but thank you anyway.
