Use the Smitfraudfix tool in the link below. Run option 1 first and if it finds anything, run option 2. Read the instructions carefully.
Super Antispyware removes Smitfraud infections, too, as you have found out. It is best to run it in safe mode.

How to Start Windows in Safe Mode:

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Please let us know the results.
