Thanks to this website I was able to recover from a Smart HDD infestation. But I don't understand why the pc got it in the first place. I have Security Essentials up to date. It may not be the absolute best anti virus package out there, but it's supposed to be ok. So how did I get Smart HDD? Is Smart HDD not considered a virus?
Sec Essentials does catch some things. In fact as I started this post, it warned of a trojan and quarantined it. The timing was strangely coincidental. This site is hopefully not where the trojan came from? The trojan was in a temp folder, under my profile, and I'm not sure how to determine what it's origin was.
