I have the blue screen on my desktop telling me

"spyware infection, your system is infected with spyware. Windows recommends you to use a spyware removeal tool to prevent loss of important data and increase system performance...."

Haven't noticed much of a change in system performance, yet the desktop background is frozen. I don't really know if there is anything hidden, used windows antispyware beta to run system scans twice and both turned out clean.


Can anyone help? Please!

Hi domd, Welcome to TSG!!

* Click here to download smitRem.exe.
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • It is a self extracting file.
  • Doubleclick the smitRem.exe and it will extract the files to a smitRem folder on your desktop.
  • Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in safe mode.

* Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here.
  • Install ewido.
  • During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
  • Launch ewido
  • It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
  • On the left side of the main screen click update
  • Click on Start and let it update.
  • DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in safe mode.


* Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode if you don't already know how.


* Now copy these instructions to notepad and save them to your desktop. You will need them to refer to in safe mode.


* Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps in safe mode:


* Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


* Run Ewido:
  • Click on scanner
  • Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
  • During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
  • When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
  • Save the report to your desktop


* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


* Next go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.


* Restart back into Windows normally now.


* Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new HiJack This log along with the results from ActiveScan and the Ewido scan and post the contents of the smitfiles.txt.

Can anyone help-first timer so excuse me.
I had the spysheriff malware on my system which microsofts beta version of anti spy picked up.It removed some files but not the blue screen or the pop up.
I then tried it through no adwere which it again removed some but not all.

I then purcheased XOFT SPY which did appear to remove all including the blue background.

Apart from the following problem all seems to be ok except for a barrage of trojans coming in which have so far been defeated.
the problem is when the system re-boots it says it cannot find the:

c:\windows\system32\kernels64.exe

Also it opens note pad which is now blank, (it had the folowing file inside)
[.shellclassinfo]
[email protected]%systemroot%\system32\she1132.d11,-21787

Any help greatly assisted.
ps found the website of spysheriff and no email contact for them suprise, suprise.
i was suspicious when it said that it had found spyware looks like these are the culprits.
it is a pitty we cannot get microsoft to take them to court and close them down.
regards tony
