Hi,

I'm running Spyware Dr. vs 3.8 and AVG Professional in the Trial version. I've used them both for a scan and I still get the system-tray thing with the Your Computer Is Infected every minute. Also it's changed my default IE page to www.safetydefender.com and no matter what I do it just brings it back.

When I did the suggested removal and tried to use the Add/Remove Programs to get rid of the SpyFalcon s/w (in the safe mode) there was no reference to anything like that...so there was nothing there to remove. Anyway, below is my HiJackThis.log. I hope you can help me get rid of the pernicious thing. If not, I wonder if a good lawyer might help? hhhmmmm....

Log follows:

Hello Ancient One,

It's better to print out the next instructions or save them in notepad, because you also have to work in safe mode without networking support, so this page wouldn't be available then.
It is also important you don't miss a step and perform everything in the right order!!

1. Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

2. Download roguescanfix.exe to your desktop.
Doubleclick roguescanfix.exe to install.
This will create a new folder on your desktop called roguescanfix.
Do not use this yet!

3. Boot into safe mode:
Restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8.
A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode.

4. Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmdSelect option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart again manually.
5. Reboot back into Windows, normal mode.

6. Open the roguescanfix folder and click: Run.bat
This tool needs internet connection so it can download an additional file to let the tool work properly.
If your firewall gives an alert, allow it instead of blocking it.
Let the tool perform its job.
The icons will disappear temporarely from your desktop, and reappear. This is normal.
Wait until the message Completed script execution is displayed, and click OK.
Click Exit to close down bfu.
Finally: click OK to start the Spyfalcon and/or Spywarequake uninstaller, and click uninstall.
WARNING: You will be asked to reboot your computer. Wait until the uninstallers did their job before clicking YES.

7. Post the report from Smitfraud fix, wich you can find here: C:\rapport.txt by using Add Reply,
as well as a new HijackThis log.

Greetings,
BMThor
