Ok, so i have tried many ways of getting rid of the Smitfraud-C.CoreService problem and none have helped. I would liek to start from scratch in my attempts, so any help would be very apreciated. I have Hijack installed and i am trying to not install anything else.

See the following two Bleeping Computer removal guides:

How to Remove WinFixer / Virtumonde / Msevents / Trojan.vundo

How to remove the Smitfraud / Generic Zlob / Quicknavigate / Virtual Maid

If you still have problems after running these two fixes post back and we can suggest something else.

This infection is a rootkit found with certain smitfraud infections.

Open the SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services or Registry Entries found then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts, the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the results file Report.txt in your next reply.
Note: If this error message is displayed when running SDFix:
The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator.
Press any key to continue...

Please go to Start Menu > Run > and type (copy/paste) the following line:
%systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\swreg IMPORT %systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\Enable_Command_Prompt.reg
Press OK and then run SDFix again.


When done, download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users.
