The original attack corrupted my Yahoo browser, changed my desktop to a blue screen, destroyed my restore points for System Restore, removed the desktop and screensaver tabs from my Display Properties, and restricted me from Internet Options via the IE7 tools menu.
I have since fixed all but the IE7 restriction, and uninstalled all of the scanners except the Norton Online that comes with Yahoo, which I reinstalled after I got rid of most of the malware. Spybot got rid of all but 4 items: Zango.ShoppingReport, (two) Smitfraud-C.gp, and a Right Media cookie from IE. These may all be bundled in Yahoo, so I am probably stuck with them. An online "kelly" registry "tweak" restored my desktop and screensaver tabs.
I would really like to resolve the IE7 restriction, since it says to contact the system administrator. That would be me. I am able to change Internet Options via Control Panel, but that is the "long way around the pond" from the tools menu in IE. Once I fix that issue, I will establish a new restore point in System Restore for future problems.
If anyone can talk me through the IE7 fix, I would be most appreciative. I am using XP Pro, SP-2.
