I've had problems with a virus a lot lately, and I think I found a very easy way to get rid of it...
Sm5M6OaD.exe used to pop up every full hour, but I haven't had any problems for a few hours, since I did what I did...
it's very easy(I use XP btw)
anyway, I opened up control panel → Scheduled tasks and deleted everything from there(except 'add new task')


just thought I'd share the info, since many ppl might have problems with that virus
not sure if it'll still be gone after a restart tho ...

hope this helped someone, I just got back a few hours ago, and haven't have any problems with the virus, so I'm guessing the solution should work for everyone

If you don't want them to restart, then be like me and never shut off the computer. My desktop is always on even while I'm away, and my laptop is right here sitting next to me on the desk just running away and doing it's thing. They only restart for updates or due to calls from AV software, installations and uninstallations.
