I don't even know who was on the computer last but the Spylocked infection is on my system. I tried SmitFraudFix but that doesn't work on Win98 or WinME. So what is the fix for this horrible infection that primarily attacks Win2000 and WinXP? Please help with instructions. Thanks.

Thanks. I already know about the false program and, yes, I did try SmitFraudFix in Safe Mode but it doesn't matter what mode I use it in because it doesn't work with WinME.


FWIW, the HijackThis entry for Spylocked is showing like this:

O21 - SSODL: curdler - {bd0fc212-0a36-4232-83cc-2063fb9282e0} - C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\qzviz.dll

Reboot in Normal Mode.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in IE:

* Close all instances of Outlook Express and Internet Explorer
* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options > General tab
* Under Browsing History, click "Delete".
* Click "Delete Files", "Delete cookies" and "Delete history"
* Click Close below.

* Clean your Cache and Cookies in Firefox (In case you also have Firefox installed):

* Go to Tools > Options.
* Click Privacy in the menu..
* Click the Clear now button below.. A new window will popup what to clear.
* Select all and click the Clear button again.
* Click OK to close the Options window

* Clean other Temporary files + Recycle bin

* Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
* Let it scan your system for files to remove.
* Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
* Press OK to remove them.

If that does not clear up matters than please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log.

When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

After you have run the cleanmanager, prior to go over the steps for HiJacktThis please post back how this computer is running now

You said to then scan in Safe Mode. Did you mean to rescan using this program the same way but in Safe Mode? Just wanted to be sure. I will follow the remaining directions as you've stated afterwards. Thanks for your help. I'm truly grateful.

Nevermind, Master, the system is totally clean now. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH! It's all entirely gone!
