I found the topic on HijackThis about Privacy_danger...I was infected and followed the instructions for removal.
What instructions did you follow?
I see that you used SDFix which detected/removed several related bad files from this infection. I would have asked you to follow BC's self-help tutorial
: How to remove Privacy Protector or PrivacyProtector
. However, some of these tools will overlap in their detection and removal of malware.
Are you having any further problems?Smitfraud
is a generic description for a family of rogue applications/trojans (i.e. Win32.Zlob
) that uses misleading advertising, downloads rogue security products, changes (hijacks) the Windows Desktop and infects system files. The Trojan uses bogus security warnings
and fake alerts to indicate that your computer is infected with spyware or has critical errors
. It is responsible for downloading and installing programs that purport to scan for spyware and then uses false scan reports as a scare tactic to goad you into purchasing one of several rogue programs to fix it.
