Hey guys..i got infected by spyfalcon yesterday and spent 2 hrs trying to remove it. Followed the instructions in this forum and stil couldnt get it. Worse i couldnt even find the spyfalcon prog it supposedly installed in my C:\Program Files\Spy Falcon. ran the batch file and all respopses where "could not find path" etc. So as i was nearing my wits end, i went into the system32 and arranged view according to date created. Gambled and moved the following files : "winrmc32.dll, simpole, stdole3, regperf.exe and fyhhxw.dll" Reboot and voila! the damn spyfalcon wasnt there no more bugging me!

Anyway started my pc again this morn and installed a soft i wanted to try out : "Super Ad Blocker" after installation it recommended me to scan for malware etc. so i did and was i surprised when it detected spyfalcon! i removed the files to a folder on the desktop and dat was where it detected it.

Sorry if the story's long :thumbsup: All in all, just wanted to let u guys know dat the prog i tried did managed to detect spyfalcon. But i dont know if it can remove it tho.. maybe someone with more exp can tell for sure.

The image you provided is SuperAntiSpyware scan results after completing its scan. Did you select "Next" at the bottom to quarantine and remove the files if found? fyhhxw.dll is one of the newer smitfraud variant related files that have been recently discovered.

Are you still having symptoms with popups and bogus alerts.
