About an hour ago I went through the automated guide as described at How to remove spywarequake but the icon in the system tray is still there.

As suggested I have coped the contents from my task.txt file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




Export SharedTaskScheduler key

"{438755C2-A8BA-11D1-B96B-00A0C90312E1}"="Browseui preloader"
"{8C7461EF-2B13-11d2-BE35-3078302C2030}"="Component Categories cache daemon"

sharedtaskkey: a2cd90b5-e5a2-4aac-a504-c964a6d499df

Hi Nathan and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Thanks for letting us know about this - it's the newest variant of SpywareQuake. I checked it out and the tool (smitrem) was updated this morning at 04:46 AM to remove that variant. I would like you to remove any old versions of smitrem or Roguescanfix and download newer ones from the same links - then repeat the instructions and hopefully it should be removed. Of course if the problem remains just let me know and we can try to get it fixed for you.
