I have tried to delete this url, but it keeps reloading itself, I have deleted it using Hijack this, and it still comes back.
I have run smitfraudfix, avg, Norton, nothing seems to work.
It is located in windows system 32 , but cannot be deleted as message says " file in use"

Could someone please tell me how to get rid of it, I have run out of ideas!

SuperAntiSpyware may be able to remove the Winantivirus infection. Download the free version for home users of SuperAntiSpyware, install it and then update the definitions (by clicking the "Check for Updates" button). Then reboot your computer into Safe Mode (How to start Windows in Safe Mode) and run a scan by clicking the "Scan Your Computer" button and checking "Perform Complete Scan". After the scan is finished reboot your computer back into Normal Mode.

Thanks for that, it was a good programme and deleted most of the files, but now, it keeps prompting me, that the webpage is trying to change.
Any ideas how to remove the rogue file problem, completely ??

Try scanning with RogueRemover.

Download RogueRemover and save to you Desktop. Double-click on rr-free-setup.exe to install in C:\Program Files\RogueRemover and follow the prompts. During installation an icon will automatically be created on your Desktop. If the program does not open after installation, double-click on the RogueRemover icon to launch. Select "Check for Updates" and click Download if any are found. Wait for the updates to finish downloading, then Close the update window. Select "Scan" and follow the onscreen directions to remove anything found. If nothing is found, exit RogueRemover. If RogueRemover finds something, it will present a list of detected items. Click "Remove selected", then Yes at the prompt. Wait for the removal to complete and then close RogueRemover.

Also let us know if you followed the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to remove the Smitfraud/Generic Zlob"?
(scroll down to where it says Removal Instructions). It needs to be run from safe mode.

I have moved your Hijackthis log to the Misplaced HJT Logs forum. You posted your log in a forum not intended for these logs analysis and probably missed the directions we provide to those who require assistance.

Please follow all directions that I posted as a reply to your log. Following these instructions will ensure that your hijackthis log is properly posted so it can be reviewed in a timely manner.

If you have any questions please respond in that thread. To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
