I ran across this program for the first time last night and decided I do not like it much at all. However I feel like I missed something and that there might be something else running. Things I have done:

ComboFix
SmartFrued (spelling)
SuperAntiSpyware
Manual editing of registry and program deletion through command prompt.

Nothing wanted to open when using the computer, an error would pop up and disappear on the screen about "program too big for memory". After trying several different programs to get around this, I restarted in safe mode with command prompt and was able to gain access to program I had copied to the desktop (listed above). I was able to open the regedit and utilize that to remove the registry entries I could find that were related to this program. And finally deleted some of the files associated with it. I ran ComboFix last and it ran its course, but I was unable to turn off AVG during the start so am unsure if it was able to do everything it needed to. I did get a log, but noticed that I am not to post that until asked. I am not at the computer, but will go back to it at a later time to see how things are working. I would really like to post the log to see if someone sees something I missed.

I will check back in on this topic off and on when I have the chance, but there is no real hurry and would like to tell whoever responds that it might be awhile before I have a chance to try anything suggested or respond.

I see you have already run

ComboFix
SmartFrued (spelling)
SuperAntiSpyware

Hi ; I guess you did not know that

ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer..


However, do you have the report from Superantispyware to show us?

I'm moving this topic from the XP forum to the Am I Infected forum for you.

@ buzzbo Given what you have already done, I would suggest that you follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you cannot produce the DDS logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.
