The past few days i've been getting massive stutter with all applications, games that i could run before flawlessly are now getting extremely low FPS.

I've run Spybot S&D and it found smitfraud-c, and smitfraud toolbar. I got rid of Smitfraud-c manually. but everytime i get rid of smitfaurd toolbar it just comes back right away.

I don't know if that is what is causing my PC to perform horribly, but my anti virus software hasnt found anything else.

Please tell me how to get rid of this pest.

EDIT: if it makes any difference, there is a flashing blue rectangle at the bottom left of my screen, and it has never been there before now.

To add to what fozzie said:

After you create the HJT log which you will find in the directions fozzie has directed you to, create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
