I downloaded a file that I shouldn't have and got the Smitfraud malware. I have taken a lot of steps to get rid of the virus, but one thing that I cannot get rid of is the "Spyware Removal Wizard" popup. Later, other websites pop up and it becomes very frustrating. Could you please take a look at my log and give me any suggestions on how to clear this virus out. I feel like I've done a lot already.

Could be a couple things

One thing hides from Hijack, so right click on the program file (Not the shortcut) hijackthis.exe and rename it to bleep.exe

You may have an older version of SmitFraudfix so delete what you have and do this

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present). We’ll get them next step.
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) 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.

Post its log and a new hijack log
"Nothing could be finer than to be in South Carolina ............"
