Hello all. I had this as a constant backgroung on my computer and could'nt get rid of it for nothin'. But, I read a post here and ran SDFix and it's now gone. That and a few other viruses, I think. . . But now my background is just white- nothing else(but my icons). I've went to my apperances and chose a new picture for my background, but it does'nt show up. Anyone have any help for me? Thanks in advance- Vanessa

You should not be following specific instructions provided to someone else. Instructions provided to victims, especially in the HJT forum, have been given by a staff expert to fix that particular members problems, NOT YOURS. Ignoring this warning and using someone else's fix instructions could lead to serious problems with your operating system.

In your particular case, you had a smitfraud infection, and used a tool intended for another type of malware which does not detect or remove all the bad files related to smitfraud. The victim who had a similar problem may have had multiple infections which was why SDFix was used.

Please follow the the instructions in BC's self-help tutorial How to remove Ultimate Defender
