I've used the following to disinfect my computer but no luck. Any guaranteed recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Unsuccessful in removing smtpsvc.exe:
Webroot Spy Sweeper
Yahoo Online Protection
Ad-Aware SE Personal

I could not successfully download the updated Microsoft AntiSpyware Beta 2 software to run.

Hi dragonfly-aa,

smtpsvc.exe is noted in the BC file database. That entry has a generic trojan removal procedure. Try that first. I would then follow our malware removal guide. It gives step by step instructions for removing the bad stuff.

I hope this helps... If you have any questions, please ask.
