I am using Windows XP Home and the latest version of IE.
So, I did a desperate Yahoo search and found a related topic on bleepingcomputer.com from Feb 2007 and I used the smitfraudfix.cmd tool to delete the bug. I don't think I was in safe mode the first time I ran this (and it did not look like it worked), then I again tried the F8 reboot deal a second time and it seemed to run ok. The malware seems to be gone and I seem to have no symptoms at this point. So THANK YOU!!
One question I have is this seems to have changed or deleted my default Sony VAIO wallpaper. Not a big deal, maybe I just need to reset using Control Panel?
Anyway, do you think I am all better now, or do I need to do some further work to clean up my machine or prevent this nasty bug from returning?
(I did run Yahoo's Norton Anti Spy quick and full scan and it did not fix the problem)
Anyway, thanks again for providing this great resource!
