Hello everyone, this is my first post here. Looks like a great website!

I had a problem with some variant of Smitfraud. I used SmitfraudFix and it seemed to go well with one exception, and that is the message: "Cannot import cleanup.reg: Error accessing the registry."

SmitfraudFix did eliminate the pop-ups (about every 5 minutes) that read "Windows Security Alert. Warning! Potential Spyware Operation! Your computer is making unauthorized copies of your system and Internet files. Run full scan now to pervent any unathorised access to your files! Click YES to download spyware remover . . " I then manually cleaned out the "hosts" file which had been modified to prevent access to many security oriented websites (actually, I completely emptied out the hosts file).

So here is the HijackThis Log created after doing all the above:

I'm using ZoneAlarm 7 with anti-virus and anti-spyware, but no additional products. I keep wondering why ZoneAlarm didn't zap the malware BEFORE it did any damage. Afterall, that's why I use it. Am I expecting too much?

It can be seen in the log that there is still some componant of Symantec's products in the system that didn't completely uninstall after I stopped using their anti-virus and switched to ZoneAlarm for everything.

I would be grateful for advice that anyone may have.
