my internet explorer home page is www.securitybulletin.net even though it is set to about:blank this page says that i am infected with W32.Sinnaka.A@mm and tries to sell me Malware wipe and Pest Trap, firefox is not effected by this.
i cannot seem to be able to post a screen shot if you need one let me know
also my firewall has notified me 48 times now (make that 49) that Universa Application is trying to access the internet, i have denied it each time and each time the file name is slightly different win82.tmp.exe or win26F.tmp.exe or some variant of that
if anyone could help me with either of these problems it would be greatly appreciated
Edit: my firewall is zone Alarm and i have tried Ad-Aware, spyware doctor, spybot, spy sweeper and windows defence to get rid of this

The "Universa Application" files seem to be related to Dialer.GlobalAccess. They should be located in the C:/WINDOWS/temp folder. You can safely delete these temp files after doing the SmitFraudFix.
