HI, I guess i have picked up IE Defender . the removal instructions seem lengthy and a little over my head. is there a simple place to start, or is it time to start the process you offer ?

:flowers: to the forum, RICKYB.

Although the directions seem a little hard, they really are not and you are told step by step what to do :thumbsup:

Just read the thread here and skip down to the part that starts with Automated Removal Instructions for IE Defender: .

If you have any particular difficulty with understanding the instructions, feel free to ask for help here :thumbup:

I followed the instructions with a few glitches. first, downloading the SmitFraudFix.exe gave me a picture of a folder, not the blue icon shown. Also, after instruction 8 it tells you to go to step 11. so what about 9 and 10? Anyway after trying twice I still get the Warning Messages typical to IE Defender. Not sure whether to proceed to the Hijackthis Log or not.

If your having a problem following the instructions in the guide, then try using these "instructions" which may be easier for you to understand. Make sure you scroll down to Clean and perform the steps where you reboot in "Safe Mode" and run option #2.
If you have downloaded SmitfraudFix previously, please delete that version and download it again as the tool is frequently updated!
-- If the tool fails to launch from the Desktop, please move smitfraudFix.exe to the root of the system drive (usually C:\), and run it from there.

THANKS FOR THE DIFFERENT ANGLE. I WILL TRY IT TONIGHT. IS THERE A PERIOD OF TIME I NEED TO WAIT THAT DOESN'T HAVE A PROGRESS BAR? I THOUGHT IT WAS WORKING EXCEPT FOR THE RESULT DIDN'T COME. THANKS TO THOSE WHO KNOW SO MUCH OF WHAT I DON'T.

After running SmitFraudFix, a text file named rapport.txt will have automatically been saved to the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt.
