    I followed the procedure recommended by noadhfear to get rid of Smitfraud. It seemed to have worked for the most part, but a couple of days before I did it, I started having trouble with Internet Explorer, so I was not able to run the ActiveScan.
    When I run IE, it will work for a very short while and then just stop and all of the IE windows are gone and a message comes up saying something like "An error has occured and an error log will be generated" - although I can't find the error log.

    I have included the report from HJT and from Ewido. Please check over these and let me know what needs to be removed and if there is any sign of why IE is not running properly.

    Thanks.

    There are still some remnants left...

    Download KillBox here: http://www.downloads.subratam.org/KillBox.zip
    Save it to your desktop.
    DO NOT run it yet.

    With IE closed, run Hijack This again.
    Put a checkmark on these entries and hit "fix checked":

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Compliant] winole.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [MSN Messenger] C:\WINNT\System32\msmsgs.exe

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [time] time.exe

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Microsoft AntiSpyware helper - {C0AA29CB-D421-44ED-A878-6CEF0D24B6A6} - (no file) (HKCU)


    Boot into Safe Mode (start tapping the F8 key at Startup, before the Windows logo screen)

    Double-click on Killbox.exe to run it.
    Now put a tick by Standard File Kill.
    In the "Full Path of File to Delete" box, copy and paste each of the following lines one at a time then click on the button that has the red circle with the X in the middle after you enter each file.
    It will ask for confimation to delete the file.
    Click Yes.
    Continue with that same procedure until you have copied and pasted all of these in the "Paste Full Path of File to Delete" box.

    C:\WINNT\System32\msmsgs.exe
    C:\WINNT\System32\winole.exe
    C:\WINNT\System32\time.exe


    Note: It is possible that Killbox will tell you that one or more files do not exist.
    If that happens, just continue on with all the files. Be sure you don't miss any.

    Exit the KillBox.

    Also in safe mode navigate to the C:\WINNT\Temp folder.
    Open the Temp folder and go to Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Go to Start > Run and type %temp% in the Run box.
    The Temp folder will open. Click Edit > Select All then Edit > Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel > Internet Options.
    On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files".
    Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK.
    Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button.
    Click Apply then OK.

    Empty the Recycle Bin.

    Reboot, post a new log.

    Thanks for your help.

    I did what you suggested: deleted the files with HJT, and ran KillBox (the files were not present just as you suspected), and deleted the files from the temp directories as instructed. The log for the new HJT is included below.

    I then tried to run IE again and it still did not work. The message it gave was:
    "iexplorer.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." I don't know where the error log might be.

    Is there something else to try? Thanks.

    I would try the IEFix: http://windowsxp.mvps.org/IEFIX.htm

    If you can get IE to work properly after that, I highly recommend that you go to Windows Update and install all "Critical Updates and Service Packs" ASAP! This will patch numerous security holes in IE and Windows. Many baddies get on your machine by taking advantage of these vulnerabilities. As your machine stands now it is wide open to attack from all sorts of nasties. You need to get these updates IMMEDIATELY!

    I ran the IEFix but I did not have the disks for the OS. My computer came with ME, but 2000 was loaded on it at work. I bought it from work and they sent along the ME CD's. I don't know if I could use those disks for the IE repair. Please advise - this is all new to me and I was hesitant to try something that might cause trouble.

    Thanks.
