I've read a fair bit about this, but just looking for a final bit of advice please.
I had a few issues on my laptop (windows XP prof), but seem to have found the bad guys and stopped the fake pop-up security alerts now. I used SmitfraudFix and I have also used SUPERAndtiSpy and Avast to remove viruses and check the drives.
After successfully following the comments on several forums with regard to SmitfraudFix, i have a couple of final questions:
1. I have a folder on the desktop that is called SmitfraudFix which contains a lot of .exe files (eg: process.exe; dumphive.exe; VACFix.exe etc) - are these safe and just part of the detection program?
2. Now that it has done its job, can I or should I remove this whole file and delete all the contents along with the main SmitfraudFix program, or is it something that i should keep?
Any help or comments are much appreciated.
