HELLO I AM TRYING TO GET RID OF THE SMITFRAUD MALLWARE VIRUS. I HAVE TRIED SO MANY THINGS AND YET TO REMOVE IT. ITS STUBBORN. I PROBABLY HAVE USED EVERYTHING OUT THERE TO GET RID OF IT AND STILL IT WONT BUDGE. ANY HELP WOULD REALLY BE APPRECITATED. I REALLY DIDN'T WANT TO REFORMAT ANYTIME SOON. AT LEAST NOT TIL MY SON CAN FIND TIME TO DO IT. IF ANYONE CAN HELP AND HAS HAD GREAT SUCCESS IN REMOVING IT LET ME KNOW. I AM RUNNING WINDOWS XP, UNDER CABLE MODEM.

SO FAR I HAVE TRIED, BITFENDER, SPYBOT, AVG7.5, AVG VIRUS AND WORM CLEANER, CWSHRDDER, CCLEANER, ZONEALARM, ASHAMPOO, REGISTERY EASY, SPYHUNTER, SUPERANTISPYWARE, AVAST, XCLEAN-MICRO, AND A FEW MORE THAT I CANT THINK OF THAT WERE A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND DOWNLOAD. I HAVE GONE THREW SAFE MODE AND GOTTEN RID OF IT OR I THOUGHT I DID, AND WHEN I COME BACK ITS THERE AGAIN. YES EVEN HIJACKTHIS GETTING RID OF THE CORECACHE STUFF NEVER DELETED IT FULLY. THAN AFTER I DO SAFE MODE AND COME BACK TO NORMAL STARTUP I GET A SALL WINDOW, C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\COMMAND.COM THAT I CANT GET RID OF NOW.
ANY ADVICE???

THANKS
