I know I am infected with SpyLocked. I continue to receive the fake alerts in my taskbar. However, I tried to use SmitFraudFix and everytime I attempt to run it, it says "FIND: Incorrect Ms-Dos version" and closes. I'm running Windows XP. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Some folks have had success removing Spylocked with Super Antispyware.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.
