Hi,

I am trying to use the SmitfraudFix.exe in Safe Mode. I have been infected with Spyware, I loaned my laptop out for a couple of weeks, came back with SpyLock and SpywareLock and loads of viruses. I have updated .dat files, ran Symantec which found numerous Trojans, unable to delete but quarantined them. I then installed and ran rogueremover and SpyBot Search and Destroy.

I am running Windows XP Prof. on a Dell C640 Laptop.

I've printed the instructions how to remove Spylocked and Spywarelocked, I still have the System Alert in my System Tray noting I have outdated Spyware and it wants me to go out to Spylocked.com

My problem, after rebooting into Safe Mode the SmitfraudFix.exe does not show up on the desktop. I've doublechecked to make sure it was downloaded and installed but will not show-up in Safe Mode.

Please advise if there is another way around this, still unable to see SmitfraudFix.exe on Desktop.

Thanks!

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 rebooting into safe mode, when you are at the logon prompt, make sure you log in as the same user account which you used to download the file. If not, you may not be able to find the file on your desktop. If your still having problems finding it, go back to normal mode and move it to a folder on the hard drive where you will be able to easily locate it when going into safe mode.

Yes, downloaded HighJackthis and unzipped and ran systemscan and save log file but when NotePad tried
to open an error came up, SAS, noted unable to read from c:\program files........I will run HighJackthis again and see if Notepad will open, if not I will post the exact error message.

Only other thing I can think of is to try to copy each line separate and paste into NotePad. NotePad will open when I click on the Icon but does not open after running the scan in HighJackthis.

Thanks!
