    I am working on my brothers computer. He seems to have found the anti-vermins system tray special. I have run HJT and am awaiting further assistance. AVG finds nothing. I have run AD Aware and AVGAS (avg antispyware) and removed at least all of the spyware, but the anti vermins thing persists. Please Help.

    I read another reply r.e. using smithfixit or whatever it was called. I scanned first (#1) and saw some disconcerting items. I then cleaned (#2) and it seems to have done the trick. I re-ran HJT and am posting the results. Please let me know if further action is required. I saw something about becoming a certified helper person and would like more information. Thanks,
    Mr. THFixit

    We should check for any lurking leftovers.

    Run ActiveScan online virus scan:
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/activescan.htm

    Once you are on the Panda site click the Scan your PC button.
    A new window will open...click the Check Now button.
    Enter your Country.
    Enter your State/Province.
    Enter your e-mail address and click send.
    Select either Home User or Company.
    Click the big Scan Now button.
    If it wants to install an ActiveX component allow it.
    It will start downloading the files it requires for the scan (Note: It may take a couple of minutes)
    When download is complete, click on My Computer to start the scan.
    When the scan completes, if anything malicious is detected, click the See Report button, then Save Report and save it to a convenient location.
    Post the contents of the ActiveScan report.

    Thanks for responding. Started the Panda scan but when I came back to check on it, it had ceased operations (locked up). It was through with the C: drive and had ventured onto the D: drive. Early in the scan it found one instance of spyware and one instance of hacking tools and rootkits. Am going to call it a night but will resume operations in the a.m. and will post results of scan. Again thanks.

    Had to try it one more time before giving up for the night. Locked again near the end of d: scan. Third time I stopped it after it found the two items. Spyware was a file in a temporary internet folder under content.ie5 folder. Got rid of it as well as all the useless folders under temporary internet files for all the different users (Admin, all users, default user etc.). I am posting the results after I ran it again and stopped it before the d: lockup. It appears that the only "problem" is the smitfraudfix file which I am assuming is not a problem at all. Anxiously await your reply.

    p.s. in the meantime, I have updated and run Ad Aware, Spybot S&D and AVGAS. All come out clean.

    Rescan with Hijack This.
    Close all browser windows except Hijack This.
    Put a check mark beside these entries and click "Fix Checked".

    Reboot.

    All should be fine now. :)
