I just posted this in the XP forum, sorry for multiple postings.

My problem is smitfraud-c. Spybot search and destroy detects 23 "problems" that it cannot fix.

I use ad-aware and spysweeper, with latest definitions and software releases.

Non of them seem to work.

The symtoms are harder to find. For a while I thought I was all set. Not so appearently. I dont use IE, but that is still somewhat hijacked. Mozilla isnt effected, so it seems. I think with IE its that I cant set my homepage. Just checked, thats fine.

Other than finding it in spybot, I cant tell its there at all.

I play games online, fps, and notice that im getting some lag. This may or may not have to do with it. Any suggestions would help, thanx.

Sorry for double posting.

What op system are you using and have you kept it fully updated before you got infected?

Does your av program scan your incoming (and outgoing) emails?

Once you remove the infection you have make sure your op system is fully updated, you run a resident realtime protection av ap that scans all email and attachments, and you have a sufficient number of anti-malware aps protecting your computer.

Come back after you get disinfected and we'll help you set it up.
