hi, welcome to TSG.

go to add/remove and uninstall gator, and delete it's folder from C:\program files.

Download this file: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/files/reg/smitfraud.reg


Doubleclick smitfraud.reg and confirm you want to merge it with the regsitry.

boot to safe mode and find and delete this file if there.

If you are the administrator for the computer which is infected, do the following.

1) Uninstall all instances of Spy Sherriff through your Add/Remove Program icon in Control Panel and then through Start Menu => Programs => Spy Sherriff

2) Get Zone Alarm installed, as well as a good anti-virus program, such as AVG.

3) Save all of your files--- in my documents, desktop, etc, that you cannot recover if you were to delete them from your machine--- to a new administrator profile you will create by going to control panel, user accounts, then new user and put everything in this new account by going to your hard drive, documents and settings, the new user name here, and then the folder called desktop.

4) when you have everything you need off of the infected user account, delete it, while in the user account icon of control panel.

This fixed my problem, so hopefully it will fix yours fairly easily.

Let me know how it goes! Good Luck! :)
