Yes, this virus is still out there and somehow it got to me, and on my day off to..
Anyways, I have Webroot spy sweeper and AVG:Free Edition control center. The AVG is always turned on but my WebRoot wasn't. I scanned with both and the Virus icon is still there. Its the one that keeps popping up with a message saying that my computer is infected. Critical System Error! System detected virus activites, they may cause critical system faiulre ect.. My Web Root has not got rid of it after sweeping my system twice. I got a message earlier to install Spysweeper Quake? But I did not. Anyone have any info on how to get rid of this thing? I have no idea how to access my hijack logs. Any easy instructions on how to get rid of this annoying virus icon would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Takata

Welcome to TSG! :)

Please do this:

* Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Addition Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

* Click here to download SmitfraudFix.zip and save it to your desktop.
  • Unzip (extract) the contents of SmitfraudFix.zip to a new SmitfraudFix folder on your desktop.
  • Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click the smitfraudfix.cmd file.
  • Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"
  • A text file will appear, which lists the infected files that it finds, if any.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report into your next reply to this thread.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

* 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.


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


* Run the SmitfraudFix:
  • Open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click the smitfraudfix.cmd file.
  • Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete the infected files.
  • You will receive this prompt:
    • "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"
  • Answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" and it will begin cleaning the infection.
  • Next the tool will check to see if wininet.dll is infected.
  • You may be prompted to replace the infected wininet.dll file if it is found.
  • Answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".
  • The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process.
  • If it doesn't restart your computer automatically when it is finished, restart it back to Windows normally yourself.
  • A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report into your next reply to this thread along with a new Hijack This log.
  • If the report doesn't open after you restart back to Windows normally, the report can be found at the root of the system drive, usually C:\rapport.txt.

ok, I've started the scan, is Active Scan a virus protection softwear? I'm using AVG but I'm not so sure about it.

It is just a scanner. It will take a while depending on how much you have on your computer to scan. It may take an hour or more.
