Hi! After 3 days of scanning and cleaning, I feel a little bit helpless...
Thank you for your time and effort in advance.

Symptoms:
After booting, desktop shows up , system tray gets filled up and then I get
"windows explorer encountered an error and needs to be closed" and so is restarted.


I've scanned repeatedly in Normal and Safe mode with the following products
adaware se 1.06r1
Spybot SD 1.3
avg 7.5 antivirus
avg 7.5 anti spyware
pestPatrol

...And in Normal mode
mcafee stinger 2.60
drweb cureit
online panda,
trendmicro antispyware , housecall
bitdefender

"Instant access" dialer and smitfraud were cleaned at some point in the last few days and an expired norton systemworks 2003 was removed with the symantec tool.
After the last trendmicro antispyware scan which found "smitfraud", the symptom remains, ie explorer restarting.
