Hello,

I'm not very computer savy but ran smitfraud fix. Spybot s&d comes up clean as does Adaware 2007. Problems seemed to get better then eventually came back but less severe. Noticed "The emlkdvo" in IE view toolbar options. (I have not checked it) Sometimes getting a security warning at top of IE screen with "click here". Have not clicked.

Can not locate any suspect files or programs to remove. Tried to run online scan at Panda but the button does not seem to respond.

Do not have a clue on how to use hijack logs but if you can give instructions I'm pretty confident I can get through it ok.

My most pressing concern is if I can send emails without the risk of spreading the problem. I am currently only using hotmail. Brousers are IE and Firefox.

Thanks in advance.
Roland

If there are no more problems or signs of infection, you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "OK".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
