Hello. I found this forum great and the tutorials helped me fix VirusBurster. Thanks to all first. However, my computer was eventually infected by some more virus and I really dont know I should do. Here are a few questions I hope you can give positive solutions to them.

1. Is Smitfraudfix able to fix VirusBurster and Spyheal at the same time?

2. Is Spyhunter also a fake? If so, how can I clear it up?

3. How can I stop the anti-leech and netpumper virus?

Thanks again!

Hi LostLEGION,

Yes, the SmitFraudfix is used to get of the Virusbursters and SpyHeal.
However there are totally different control panel entries that must be addressed separately for each virus.
How To Remove Virusbursters.

How To Remove SpyHeal.

I Googled SpyHunter and it appears to be an anti-spyware program. I personally have never heard of it tho. Try going to Add/Remove Programs in Safe Mode and if it is listed there,remove it.

Also Googled Anti-Leech/Net Pumper.

Anti-Leech is software protection such as AL downloads.There is support using the download manager "Net Pumper" with Anti-Leech.

So this must be related to some software that was previously installed on your computer.

Hope this helps.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

SpyHunter was listed on the Rogue/Suspect Anti-Spyware List because of the company's history of employing aggressive, deceptive advertising. It has been delisted by I would stick with those anti-malware programs that have a proven track record. See BC's List of Virus & Malware Resources.

How can I stop the anti-leech and netpumper virus?


It's a pain to remove. I would suggest you go here , Preparation Guide for HJT , run through all the instructions & post a HijackThis log in the appropriate forum. Someone there will help you make sure that your computer is free from malware.

A few other things:

1. Please read the guidelines at the top of the page very carefully.

2. Wait for someone from the HJT team to reply. If you reply before they do, your log may get overlooked.

3. While working through the process with an HJT member, do not make any changes to your system as it probably do more harm than good.

4. Don't post more than one topic. Doing so would create a conflict & will not do you any good.

Please refrain from asking for help from other members or staff until the HJT Team has checked your posted log. The HJT Team work very hard to investigate and develop a unique solution to your problem. Just like your computer is different from every other computer, the solution will be tailored to the problems associated with your computer as you receive individual expert assistance. This takes time and effort. The staff here are all professionals and they volunteer their time to help.

Thus, we ask you to please be patient while waiting for assistance and NOT to make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Any modifications you make can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the team member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

Thanks for your cooperation.
