I was directed to your removal of Virusburst instructions by Kapersky Internet services. Yes I am infected. I followed the online removal instructions method and when I got to the smitRem Download I received an internal error 2908 message. This is followed by a "copy" popup that keeps trying to copy and keeps generating other error reports. I can rapidly keep hitting the cancel button on each of these popups which will temporarily stop the popups but they keep returning. I was unsucessful in removing the smitRem software to stop this repeated action. How can I remove this software?
I also installed roguesscanfix_setup.exe as part of the virusbuster fix. Could it be the problem? Ultimately I would like to remove VirusBurst.

So you are getting this error when you download the smitrem program?

Try the instructions here and see if it works for you:

Glad to hear you resolved the issue. Now that your system is clean you should SET A NEW RESTORE POINT to prevent reinfection from an old restore point. Any malware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete these bad files which can reinfect your system. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to set a new RESTORE POINT:
1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
4. Click "OK".
5. Click the "More Options" Tab.
6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
