On Thursday evening 7/7, it appeared that my computer became infected while on the Internet. I am running Windows 98 as my Operating System. Upon booting up my computer, I get a "Security Warning":

A fatal error in IE has occurred at 0028:C0011E36 in VXD VMM<01> + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c

It tells me:
System can not function in normal mode. Please check you security settings.
and
Scan your PC with any available antivirus/spyware remover program to fix the problem.

A friend suggested to try AVG's free Scanning Tool to attempt to fix the problem. I installed an ran. It identifies 7 security threats. An pops up a message for me to fix, delete, or save to a vault the C:\windows\temp\se.dll file. I have tried all three options. However, the problem does not go away. I then got on the internet and found your site. I found the discussion between steady9669 and flrman1. It sounds like exactly what is happening to me. I followed the instructions given by flrman1 (downloaded Hijack This - upgraded version noted in thread #12). I ran it an saved the log file. I still have the problem. I then went to Safe Mode and tried it. Still have the problem. I then went to DOS mode to to do scanreg/restore (as mentioned in thread #10). It ran and gave me 5 dates. I selected July 4, I got a message that implied it could not go back to that date. I did it again and realized the 4th is not an option now and selected July 6. Again it indicated it could not restore. My next date is July 7 and that is when I got this virus.

Can someone advise me on what I need to do.

Hi geg1119

Welcome to TSG! :)

Please do this:

First create a permanent folder somewhere like in My Documents and name it Hijack This.

Now Click here to download Hijack This. Download it and click "Save". Save it to the Hijack This folder you just created.

Click on Hijackthis.exe to launch the program. Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log. Click "Save" to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.

Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.

DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Click here to download CWSinstall.exe. Click on the CWSinstall.exe file and it will install CWShredder.

Right click on a blank spot on your desktop and choose "New Folder". A New Folder will appear on the desktop. Name the folder SpSeHjfix. Click here to download SpSeHjfix109.zip. Save it to your desktop. Now unzip the SpSeHjfix109.zip file to the SpSeHjfix folder you created.

Disconnect from the internet and close all running programs and any open browser windows.

Open the 'SpSeHjfix' folder and click on the SpSeHjfix109.exe file. Now click on the "Start Disinfection" button and let it run.
When it's finished it will reboot your machine to finish the cleaning process.
It will create log of the fix which will appear in the folder.

If it doesn't find any of the SE files or any hidden reinstallers it will say that your system is clean and not go on to next stage

Next run CWShredder. Click on the cwshredder.exe then click "Fix" (Not "Scan only") and let it do it's thing.

When it is finished restart your computer.


* Go here to download CCleaner.
  • Install CCleaner
  • Launch CCleaner and look in the upper right corner and click on the "Options" button.
  • Click "Advanced" and remove the check by "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 48 hours".
  • Click OK
  • Do not run CCleaner yet. You will run it 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.


* Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close ALL windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked"

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


* Start Ccleaner and click Run Cleaner


* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then 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 HiJackThis log along with the results from ActiveScan and the log that was created by 'SpSeHjfix'.

In following your directions (thanks for being so detailed in explaining the steps), upon unzipping the SpSiHjfix109.zip, I get a message titled "Error Starting Page" with "A required .dll file, TSAD.DLL, was not found".

Hope you can still help.

Sorry it has taken so long to give an update. It appears that all is well with my PC. I am not getting any errors, nor are any of my anti-virus softwares finding any problems. I appreciate your help.
