So basically, i wanted to watch a video and told i needed some sort of codec, or active X, when prompted to download, i allowed it :flowers: because im stupid like that.

anyway, so then i opened my picture folder

and a prompt came up saying i had an unknown trojan that could delete system files.

Anyway, i was told that this was obviously a scam, and was possibly a Zlob trojan, which had caused a smitfraud infection.


i ran a program called smitfraudfix, but i have no idea if it worked

Advice.. Help.. Anything..

Anything is helpful please :thumbsup:

if its not easy to say in a comment you can always email me

Hello ...First is this an XP system ?
Did you run Option 1 and then 2 in SmitfraudFix?
Please post the result reports. The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt
What symptoms are you experience before and after running the tool?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I see,well it may not have created a log without option one. It would be on your root drive (where Windows was installed to) in a file named rapport.txt.

If you would like you can run this scan of your PC and see what it finds. For Vista I believe you need to run this as Administrator.

Download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
  • Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
  • Click the Scanning Control tab.
  • Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.
  • Back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.
  • Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes".
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
