I, up until yesterday had been plagued with the above mentioned "Spyware/Malware/Trojans" for a couple of days. I was at the point I had been at previously when I had this issue with Smitfraud of reformating my PC's hard drive as I had done before. But after some searching the "net" and reading about how others are having the same problem I was, I found through trial and error. that downloading "Windows Defender" would take care of the Smitfruad-C.MSVPS. I had also downloaded the antispyware program called, "SUPERAntiSpyware" from their site which is, www.SUPERAntiSpyware.com I had ran it prior to downloading the Windows Defender and still Spy-Bot Search and Destroy was finding the Smitfraud-C.MSVPS. But once I installed the Windows Defender that took care of that issue! Then as far as for the Zlob.Downloader.vcd issue, I downloaded (Which I did not know was out or that it had been released) Spy-Bot Search and Destroy 1.5. I had been running v1.4 and keeping it updated and that took care of that problem. I hope that some else out there that is having the same problem I was finds this little bit of information helpful to them!!!
