The steps in the Preparation Guide seem to have solved my problems but I just want to make sure. Here's a history of what I've done:

Symantic antivirus cought the original attack and alerted me that it quarantined 2 files, idemlog.exe and howiper.exe. Something else must have slipped thru because when I rebooted Spy Sherif was installed and windows started saying "Your computer is infected! Click here to protect yourself from spyware!" I click and nothing happens.. Here's the steps I've taken so far:

Unistalled Spy Sheriff thru Control Pannel Add/Remove Progs.

Ran windowsupdate. I was already up to date.

Ran Ad-aware. Updated. Scan found a few things and deleted them but hoping this was the end of my problems i didn't write it down.

Ran Spybot S&D. Updated. Clicked on "Scan for problems" and it found nothing. (I think it only examined the running processes because it finished in less than 10 seconds)

Ran a full scan with Symantic AV, found nothing new.

Tried all 3 Online antivirus services. Housecall found nothing and Panda wouldn't start correctly (error on page). BitDefender found and deleted all of the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\user\1.dat
- Infected with: Trojan.Downloader.BV
C:\Program Files\SpySheriff\Uninstall.exe
- Detected with: Application.Adware.SpySheriff
- Infected with: Trojan.Downloader.Agent.SY
- Infected with: Trojan.Downloader.Agent.SY
- Infected with: Trojan.Downloader.BV

Ran Spybot S&D again, this time it worked correctly. Wow, what a great program. It found and fixed all this:
Spy Sheriff
a bunch of tracking cookies
a couple registry changes for ActiveDesktop and Explorer

Ran McAfee AVERT Stinger. It didn't say it found anything.

Installed ZoneAlarm. (I had no idea that XP's firewall was so bad...)

Ok, so now I'm just wondering if my system is truly clean. My HJT log still shows the trojan popcorn72.exe and a couple of other suspicious programs. I'll wait for a response before I try anything else.

Follow the instructions in this topic:

How To Remove The Smitfraud / Psguard / Virtualmaid

Then reboot and post a new log. If you have previously used SmitRem, please delete the folder from your computer and download it again using the instruction above as the program was updated yesterday.
