I'm running WindowsXP SP2. Recently infected with SmartAntiVirus2009.

Steps I've taken to remove infections:

1. Used Avast to remove all infections found.
2. Used Malwarebytes to remove all infections found.
3. Used SuperAntiSpyware to remove all infections found.

Also worth mentioning is that my gmail account was compromised shortly after infection. Within days after initial infection, someone added a fake gmail account to mine, and started buying goods on ebay. From what I can tell, my eBay account shows no activity. All passwords have now been changed.

Thanks In Advance for Helping.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
