Hello There,
I have a customer that was infected by some spyware, ran SpyBot S&D, after finishing, shows Microsoft.WIndows.RedirectedHosts host file not found and several similar, ran AVG Anti-Virus found and removed 5 viruses.
Restartd in safe mode and ran SmithFraud removal tool keep getting this message about infected with spyware, any ideas!

"False Positive? - Redirected Host File"

Are you using the latest version of Spybot? See Changes & Improvements in v1.5

As for smitfraudfix, are you following the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to remove the Smitfraud/Generic Zlob".
