I recently got infected with what I believe is a bad case of smitfraud. I've tried running smitfraud.fix in safemode but the problem seems to still persist after reboot. I get constant pop-up advertisements from "AntispySpider". There are constant tray notifications such as "Windows Security Manager: your computer is running slow because it has been infected" and "Windows Defender: Internet attack attempt detected". and I get pop-ups that read "Spyware activity is found on your computer: It is recommended to update your anti spyware protection to prevent data loss..." and so on. My desktop wallpaper is changed to this giant red warning with links to "fix" the problem. Also, my task manager and regedit have been disabled. I've tried running ADV 8.0, Ad-Aware, McAfee, Smitfraud.fix (in safe mode), SUPERantispyware and Hijackthis. I am running Windows XP Home Edition. I would post my Hijack this and ComboFix(I haven't run this yet) logs, but the disclaimer instructs us not to. Please help me, I feel like I've exhausted my solutions.


Also, I apologize if I didn't use any clear indicator words in the title. I tried to go back and change it, but sadly I'm a blog newb.

Great news,please finish up with this...

Now you should Set 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 System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which sometimes can reinfect your system. 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 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.
