When I boot up, the computer gets through the ID and P/W and then shoots me at error that stalls the rest of the Windows startup. The message reads as follows:

A fatal error in IE has occured at 0028:c0011E36 in VXD VMM(01) + 00010E36. Error was caused by Trojan-Spy.html.Smitfraud.c

* System cannot function in normal mode. Please check your security settings.
* Scan your PC with any available anti-virus/spywear remover program to fix the problem.

Any thoughts other than a shot to my head!!

Can you get into safe mode? If not you may need to build the UBCD4Win to gain full read/write access to your hdd's to run a virus scan or download and update the Public Antivirus CD.

If you think you are infected submit a hijackthis log here.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe mode (Getting to safe-mode) Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip


DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix
