Oh my gosh, it's really getting on my nerves!
Here's the thing:
I probably let in some sort of troyan horse, that shut down my firewall and antivirus without me noticing, and thus opening me up to all sorts of hostility...
I almost got everything out after hours and hours of work, only got stuck with this SmitFraud BS... As I was ALMOST done with cleaning it all up, I reboot my system, and DANG, I cannot do anything as it keeps starting up the Startup Repair tool.....
It searches for problems...
And then tells me it cannot help me giving the following:

Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7264.0
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7264.0
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: 21200754
Problem Signature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 06: 17
Problem Signature 07: CorruptFile
OS Version: 6.1.7264.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

I tried booting in safe mode and all other options, they all give me the same...
When booting with command prompt, I did notice that the last file being started before this Startup Repair is PartMgr.sys

As I was looking on the net for answers, I did run into others having had this same issue, although either the solutions were not posted, or they eventually had to re-instal windows. I hope I can get some usefull help on here...
Thanks so much in advance!

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Lets see if our team here at Bleepingcomputer can fill in the empty solutions and possibilities. :)

You posted under the Windows 7 forum so I am going to assume you have Windows 7 for an operating system.

What type of Windows 7 installation disk do you have?

An OEM copy or a retail copy?

If it is a retail copy is this a full version or an Windows 7 upgrade disk?

Thanks in advance.

Bruce.

Thanks Bruce,

I used a retail full version of window 7, I don't remember whether I eventually upgraded my vista, or installed it clean...
And I don't have the disk at hand now, I believe W7 is designed to generally not need the disk..?

Thanks for your help, I hope my answers will help you find a sollution.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I have brought your topic to the attention of another BC Advisor whose name is dc3.

He is a very knowledgeable BC staff member. :)

Allow him time to seek advice on if it is felt your computer should be checked throughly by one of our specially trained Malware Response Team members to be sure that your computer is in fact clean of any possible infections caused by the SmitFraud virus or any of its variants.

Just wanted to give you a heads up and thank you for using Bleepingcomputer for help and assistance. :wink:

Kind regards.

Bruce.

Hi Frank,

I'm in and out today. There was a large fire up the street last night and I've been busy helping with that.

What scanner or cleaner did you use to get rid of the SmitFraud?

Is this W7 a 32-bit or 64-bit version?

Did you use Combofix to clean the computer?

It may be this evening PST before I can get back to you, but I will.

Edited by dc3, 19 November 2010 - 02:27 PM.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks you guys

That's bad news dc3, I hope everyone is allright.

My W7 is 32bit.
To get rid of SmithFraud I basicly followed THESE steps.
So I'f I remember right and complete: SmitFraudFix, SpyBot, MalwareBytes, MalAware, SpayWare Doctor (free version only checks, doesn't delete) and finally Hitman Pro.
I actually HAD to use ALL of them, to get rid of everything... =S
Haven't used Combofix though. Is it recomendable?
Thanks again
