Hello everyone!!

I tried following the instructions to remove spysheriff, but i got stuck in portion when you double click on the file smitfraudfix.cmd because it goes to the window which says, "click program you want to use to open smitfraudfix.cmd file". I'm a bit confused because i thought that the smitfraudfix.cmd file should just run by itself. Because according to instructions, after double-clicking on the file, you should see a credits screen. (I never got there!)

I followed everything from downloading the smitfraudfix file to extracting it.

Then i restarted my computer to safe mode.
The only difference is that the safe mode in my computer was selection number 3 rather than the 1st option, as was stated in the instructions. But i was able to go to safemode all the same.

I've closed all programs that opened.

I opened the smitfraudfix folder.

The only problem now is to get the file to run.

I'm sorry, i'm not very good with computers. Its usually my brother who does all these things for me. Unfortunately i'm in school in another country and he's back home.

Thank you for all the help!!!

PS: I`m using windows ME.

It's my understanding that SmitfraudFix was created for NT based systems (XP, 2000, 2003).

I suggest you read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
