Hi... I had been having a spyware prob with the pop up trying to get me to install VirusProtectPro, and I was told to download Smitfraudfix. This was on my laptop. I ran it, then posted my log, then prceded to boot into safe mode. well...i tried, and it wouldnt let me. I cant exactly pry out the hard drive in my laptop, and i dont have any other copies of windows lying around.... any answers to how i can get my laptop back? or will i just have to go the way of linux?

PLZ HELP!

Did you follow the the instructions in BC's self-help tutorial How to remove VirusProtectPro or VirusProtect Pro? If so and you can't get into safe mode, using the smitfraudfix is not to blame.

Download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. (This program is for Win XP, 2000, NT only)
  • Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover.
  • During the installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop.
  • Double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch the program and select Check for Updates.
  • If prompted, click Download to receive the latest updates.
  • When completed, close the update window.
  • Select "Scan" and the program will walk you through the remaining steps.
Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free.

i can't get past this step: When the tool first starts you will see a credits screen. Simply press any key on your keyboard to get to the next screen. nothing happens!

From reading your first post--QUOTE: "This was on my laptop"---if you are using a Smitfraudfix program that was previously on your computer, uninstall and reinstall Smitfraudfix.

Super Antispyware will remove Smitfraud malware.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Did you save Smitfraudfix to your desktop and run it from there? If not, do that and try again. If your still having problems getting the tool to work, then go ahead and run the tool in normal mode.
