I got SMART_HDD, I found your website, I found your uninstall guide, I went through it, I did the unhide, the Rkill, the TDSS rootkit removal tool, and I've been scanning with Microsoft Safety Scanner, MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, and Windows Security. I can see everything, haven't tested the google redirect yet but I got around it by just typing in the sites I wanted, but it doesn't look like the SMART_HDD is entirely gone, despite having gone through all that and nothing being picked up by Microsoft Safety Scanner and MalwareBytes. On the taskbar thing along the bottom, there is now a SMART_HDD button, on the desktop there is now a SMART_HDD icon, and pressing the Start, in All Programs, there is now a SMART_HDD folder that contains two programs, that read SMART_HDD and Uninstall SMART_HDD, though when I hover over them their little box thing that comes up says SMART_HDD for both of them, which makes me suspicious. It doesn't say anything about this in the uninstall guide, so I'm not quite sure what to make of this. Is this regular, or known to happen? Thoughts, advice, suggestions? Again, scans aren't picking anything up, I've run Rkill multiple times and it doesn't appear to be picking up anything, but I don't trust it, and it makes me suspicious and worried that nothing appears to think there is something wrong with it. Any help, thoughts, suggestions, advice, or anything else is greatly appreciated.
