Just this morning BraveSentry landed on my computer. Wasn't able to do anything...no Task Mgr, no internet connection, running very slow, annoying popups, & more - even disabled my printer - a mess to say the least.

I joined your forum and followed instructions from an earlier post where the person also had no internet connection after being infected with this same 'whatever it is'.

I ran SmitfraudFix in safe mode and I have the log from that if it would help. Some problems went away but the computer is still very, very slow & I can't get my internet connection back yet. The next step was to run RogueRemover - did that. No change....pc is still extremely slow to follow any command, the hour glass is constantly showing & no internet connection.

OS is XP Pro. Would certainly appreciate any help with this.

Thanks,
pk

Post a Hijack This log in the Hijack This forum. Use the link below to download.

You must be using a different medium other than the internet to download from since you have used the Smitfraudfix tool. Super Antispyware removes Smitfraud and other malware that are on your computer. You may want to try it before posting the Hijack This log.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

I connected my laptop for access to the internet, downloaded the tools to a usb stick & transfered them that way onto the infected computer.

Will try the same with Super Antispyware & Hijack This & post the log as you suggested.

Thank you.

Sounds like a good plan. Good luck to you.
