Hi and thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.
I have been trying since yesterday to get rid of this pesky antivermins with little success. I have run every spyware scan/cleaner I can find and, several of them freeze up and wont complete their job.
This has been the case with Smitfraud as well. While attempting to folow the automatic or manual removal procedures found on this website [http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic69886.html]
, I have encountered the folowing issues:
1. While using Smitfraud in safemode, the disk cleanup utility freeze up and wont complete it's job. I know it can take a while but I left it going for 10 hrs and the progress bar neve moved.
2. I cant find the listed .dll files that I am asked to rename in the manual procedure. On my machine the path is C:\winnt\system32.
Now the actual anti-vermins program seems to be gone, however I am still getting the fake system warning that will take me to their page should I click on it. I am 1 step away from formatting my hardrive right now, as I am very insecure about my PC privacy.
