Hi ab56452001
i see you already have a hjt log posted about this problem as well.... the only thing is, i think you have named the infection incorrectly!
From what i can see.... you really meant....syssecuritysite
The hjt team are very busy, but someone will answer your thread.
You could be right about the 'smitfraud' though.... but why did you download it and from where?
The reason you may be getting this 'process.exe file missing' might be due to the fact that process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user. Did you delete anything?
Until the hjt team answer your thread, the only thing i could suggest is that you download the 'smitfraudfix' again.... make sure that it's unzipped and make sure that nothing deletes the 'process.exe'

The Process.exe file missing error message is a known issue that results if you did not extract the file properly.

ab56452001 since you have already posted a hijackthis log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files and other items on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted and can complicate the malware removal process. Please be patient until a team expert responds to your post in that forum.
