I told my friend who is having computer problems that I'd clean out the infection on her computer. When I got there and downloaded ad-aware(which found 702 Critical objects) and Spybot S&D(which found 47 different types of objects), I found that her computer was completely FUBAR.
Now, I've found the source of the spyware & viruses...her stepdad's 250 000+ files of porn all in one folder, Kazaa, and no antivirus.
I was able to get rid of some of the easier to kill stuff based on what I've used this site for before, but there are still many problems...
PRoblems that Spybot picks up that refuse to be removed or that I know will return instantly when removed:
Command Service(don't know what this is)
Network Monitor(Don't know what this is)
SurfSidekick(Don't Know What This Is)
WhenU.Search.DesktopToolbar(Don't Know What This Is)
Smitfraud(I don't want to spend 11 hours working on her computer like I had to when mine had this
There are several others and I'll post a hijackthis! log on the site when I get to her house after school today.
I was wondering if I could get some help with these problems first as both ad-aware and spybot were incapable of doing anything to them...
Also, is there any faster way to remove Smitfraud than the manual that you have on your site?
