Hi, I was logged in thru someone else before now I have this account and I'm going to ask the same questions I did before cause I can't access the e-mail I was logged on to so here goes. I was attacked by this nasty item and it easily defeated the spybot and adaware I was using and it disabled both now it seems as if it hijacked my spybot program and it is using it against me.When I try to access any program a spybot screen which I've never seen before this opens runs some kind of scan and reports nothing found. When I try to access the add and remove programs a spybot window open and reports this rundll.exe/smitfraud then won't let me access anything. Then I downloaded the tool from this site to remove this virus I now have a new icon but when I click on it the same thing happens with the spybot and I can't access the tool what can I do to be able to use the counter measures this site offers and how do I remove this item from my computor

Hello
Did you down load SmitfraudFix, SpyBot or both?
What is your Operating System ,XP or another?

Disable spybot's Teatimer function if enabled. turn back on after scans.

To disable Teatimer,rightclick teatimer and select exit Spybot S&D resident.
Then,open Spybot,go to mode,select Advanced Mode,then Tools->resident,
and then uncheck Resident "Teatimer" active.


Then run MBAM

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
