    Hi and welcome to TSG,


    Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)

    Extract (unzip) the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop. This is imperative for the tool to function properly. If using a utility such as winzip you will have to direct it there as it will not unzip to the desktop by default. The desination location should look like this (C: being your primary drive): C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\SmitfraudFix

    Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
    Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
    Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

    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.

    You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

    Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
    • Restart your computer
    • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
    • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
    • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
    • Choose your usual account.
    Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
    Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

    You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

    The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if 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, please restart it into Normal Windows.

    A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new HijackThis log.

    The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

    Warning: running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.

    It doesn't look like it worked. Could you please run the first part of the smitfraudfix again as outlined in post no. 2 and post the log.

    Yes, that's what I meant. Option 2 didn't show the deleted files as it normally would but it does look like they're gone.


    Download the trial version of Ewido Anti-Malware 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.

    If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update ewido:

    ewido manual updates


    Click here for info on how to boot to safe mode.


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


    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



    Restart back into Windows normally now.


    Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

    When the scan is finished, save the results from the scan!


    Come back here and post a new HijackThis log, as well as the logs from the Ewido and Panda scans.

    No, sorry. I posted that in the wrong thread. :eek:

    This is for you.

    Now you should turn system restore off to flush out all previous system restore points, then turn it back on and create a new restore point:

    To turn off system restore, on the Desktop, right click on My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply and then click OK.

    Restart your computer, turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a new restore point, click on Start – All Programs – Accessories – System Tools and then select System Restore.

    In the System Restore wizard, select Create a restore point and click the Next button.

    Type a name for your new restore point then click on Create.


    I also recommend downloading SPYWAREBLASTER for added protection.

    Read here for info on how to tighten your security.



    Delete your temporary files:

    In safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\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 hit 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.
