I have been hit with the smitfraud virus twice in about two weeks..the first time I removed it without any difficulty. This time I cannot seem to get it my computer working correctly. I have dial up and cannot get a high connection to download any antivirus programs; nothing will open...all i get is the message..cannot display page. I am at my wits end here and honestly dont know what to do. I have been looking for an antiviurs program that I could save to flppy but they are all too big and the puter I am using now doesnt have a burner.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you for your time.

Do you have anti-virus and anti-spyware software on the infected machine that you can run in safe mode? If you are not sure how to boot in Safe Mode there is a tutorial here:
Safe Mode

Did you remove the first infection using instructions from the self-help forum here or from another source?

If you need to transfer larger files from a PC without a burner then a USB flash drive (pen drive/thumb drive) will do the job as long as you have USB ports on both machines.
