Hello,
First of all my computer was infected by Spyware. This thing keeps poping up on the sytem task and everytime i opened internet explorer. Keeps telling me to buy it. I tried following the guides on here about how to remove it but a new problem occured. It would not let me download any anti spyware, malware or any links that helps. And then my comp went bonkers and kept getting popups. I have tried running my virus scan but i think by that time it was too late. Anywho i haven't touched my comp since then. Frankly i don't know what to do.
So please help me!
Thank you.

Were you able to download Smitfraudfix or Vundofix?
What security programs do you have?

If you can get into safe mode, try running whatever antivirus or antispyware you have. You may be able to use safe mode with networking to download Super Antispyware and run the online scan with Bit Defender.

Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

safe mode with NETWORKING. Is that the option you are using in Safe Mode?
If that is what you are using, then you will have to use another medium other than internet to download the programs.

That should work.
You will need to get Super Antispyware, Smitfraudfix, Vundofix and Hijack This.

Not enough info to determine if it is smitfraud or vundo. Scan with Super Antispyware first and it should give you enough info to determine which it is and in a lot of cases it will remove Smitfraud.

YES!! MY COMPUTER IS FIXED!
Thanks a lot 'buddy215'!! You can't beleive how happy i am!! :thumbsup:
I used SuperAntiSpyware and Bit Defender.
The Anti spyware found a trojan virus and a few adware/malware/spyware cruds
And the bit defender found 4 trojan virus.
Now the computer is running a bit slower than normal (might be too many files) but the major problems are gone.
I think it'll be okay. Currently runnig my McAfee Virus for the 2nd time in normal mode.
Seriously thankx for you help XD

Glad you got rid of the malware. You should follow the suggested instructions below.

Remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. by using Ccleaner. Do not use "Advanced Settings" or the "Issues" button. Use only the default settings. http://www.ccleaner.com/

FLUSH SYSTEM RESTORE---RESET RESTORE POINT
Turn off system restore. This will remove all restore points since some are infected . Turn system restore back on.
http://www.real-knowledge.com/flushres.htm

I also suggest you post a Hijack This log to make sure you got rid of all the malware. There is always something lurking around. You have done the preliminaries just scroll down to # 9 in the instructionsfor the link and be sure to post in the Hijack This Forum and not in this one.
