Tried to download smitfraudfix via the primary link; didn't work. Got some error page in French. I was able to download via 2 of the mirror sites. Don't need to use at this point, fortunately. but I thought you should know...

Thanks,
donnsj

Addendum - The 2 alternate sites that I downloaded from had slightly different sized files: 1 was 1829 KB; the other was 1841 KB.

SmitFraudFix is an older specialized tool that was designed to remove certain rogue anti-spyware applications responsible for infecting your system. SmitFraudFix was intended to be used under the guidance and supervision of a trained malware removal expert who can interpret the logs. It was never meant to be used as a general purpose malware scanner like SuperAntispyware or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware which scan individual drives or different folders on a computer for viruses. The developer no longer supports the tool and has not updated it since mid-2009 so its not effective against newer types of rogue anti-spyware programs. When the developer was supporting his tool it was updated frequently so there would be variations in the file size depending on the version. 1841 KB was the size at the time of its last update.
