Smitfraudfix is not a virus or malware. It is a tool to detect and remove smitfraud infections. However, certain files that are part of the smitfraudfix tool, such as process.exe, restart.exe, SmiUpdate.exe, and reboot.exe, may at times be detected by some anti-virus as a "RiskTool", "Hacking tool, "Potentially unwanted tool" or even "Spyware-Adware". Anti-virus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user or even remove them.
Either have your anti-virus ignore smitfraudfix or temporarily disable it until you run the tool.
