Newbie poster here! My buddy infected himself with what appears to be the SpyLocked malware. He's not a computer expert, but can make his away around with a little input here and there.
I did a search based on what he told me last night, and came up with the Virus Burst removal instructions on this site. I downloaded the SmitRem.exe file and the RogueScanFix_setup.exe file, along with the automatic removal instructions, and sent them to him via e-mail in a ZIP file.
I just saw this post, and realize that VirusBurst and SpyLocked appear to be two separate pieces of malware but in the same family.
Will the Virus Burst version of the removal tool, SmitRem.exe, remove the SpyLocked malware, or do I need specifically the SmitFraudFix.exe file from the SpyLocked directions? I'm trying to avoid having to download and print out these instructions, and send them to my buddy, if the Virus Burst instructions work just as well.
