I have tried to get rid of Virus Blast in the way you suggested however i can't get past the early stages.

I downloaded fixVB and Roguescanfix, but when i tried to merge fixvb it said that "another program is currently using this file" as did roguefixer (after installation).

The links definitely work as i have tried it on my other computer and they ran successfully.

Could anyone possibly offer any help with finding out what program is apparently using them?

Also I think that virusburst may have prevented me from being able to open my task manager.

Any help welcome

Thanks alot

If your using Win XP or 2000, try following the generic instructions for using SmitfraudFix in BC's self-help tutorial "How to remove the Smitfraud / Generic Zlob". You will have to extract the zip file to you Desktop. (Click here for information on how to do this if not sure. Win 9x/2000 users click here. A ZIP file requires an unzipping utility. If you need one, download 7zip (its free).
