I don't know what happened but I apparently hve the SMART VIRIS.. I found your site and printed out the instruction for the recmmended fix by BLADE found at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic451115.html

I have tried it 3 times in SAFE MODE and also in regular mode and every single time I reboot... the SMART viris is back.

I dont seem to hav ea problem with redirect... just with the stud Data REcovery popping up and the MANY boxes opening.. plus all my folders and icons are hidden which I understand can be brought back.. but I dont know what else to do. Please help.

I saw something about a combofix.. will this would instead? I dont understand why this works for some but not all? This is the first viris I ahve had on my computer. i am running windows 7 on a HP touch Smart.
Thank you in advance.
