So what I'm assuming is my computer was infected with the smss-dooom malware, a pretty big virus and threat. I never noticed any change in performance, or any odd behavior... i think my anti virus just removed it as soon as it saw it... however. It left some garbage behind. Ive completely removed any traces of it. And so did my computer. But i still get the script error "cannot find script file. ... ... local/temp/system/smss-doooms.vbs"
How can i remove this. Ive gone into regedit and removed any trace of it in any script. But what registry key is calling for that script. Ive done complete searches with the "search everything" program. I even created a blank text document. Titled it smss-doooms.txt and switched the txt to vbs and threw that in the folder. That worked for a few days. Its driving me nuts. Dooom isnt starting up. Its not in process or services. I think its just a leftover script trying to call a virus that isnt there. But how can i fix the script.
Ive tried avira. Avg. Regedit pro. Malwarebytes. I just need to fix that script. Any help would be nice. I can live with the error if the only alternative is reinstall windows. But yeah. Its not causing no harm. Its just something im missing and i need someone smarter to help. Please. And thank you. Kindly. -mark
