I'm running Windows XP (fully updated), Spybot, AVG Antivirus, ZoneAlarm, AdAware, etc. My system is infected with Smitfraud-C. I also see a process in my Task Manager called nitcvuho.exe that I can't identify. I suspect this may be part of the malware. I am experincing major slowdowns, especially on startup. Please, help me!
Using Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, I found the source of the nitcvuho.exe file. It was in my Windows32 folder. I deleted it with MoveOnBoot and that finally took care of my slowdowns. I'm doing a BitDefender scan now. The nitcvuho file was on 80kb. How can such a little file cause such big problems? Assuming of course that this is the source of the problems and my infection is cured. I will do several more scans to make sure my system is clean, but at least performance has returned.
