Okay, I went to download some missing 'activeX slot' to view a movie online. I was decieved and ended up downloading something else. Now, a new icon has appeared on my system tray. It poses as an alert and says something along the lines of, "warning backdoor trojan has infected your pc click here for help with removal." however even if I click on the 'X' in the pop-up bubble or try to right click on the icon itself to try to close it out, a website loads in a new browser. The site is called 'spylocked' at url, http://www.spylocked.com/?aff=334. It is a pretty elaborate fake company that offers anti-virus protection programs for various styles of the windows os. the average preson thinks "ok free I'll click." If you do it downloads a executable file to your desktop that is a setup for another program. If you try to install this program some sort of infection is unleashed on your system. Luckily my norton protection caught this and stopped it before it was too late. This systray icon is accompanied by other ones that pop up a little more periodically but display similar alert messages, "system alert, malware threats", and take you to other elaborately fake 'help' websites. These sites download infections as well. Finally, I get pop-ups now saying, "get the latest virus protection here" while I never got a single pop-up before this whole thing started. If you follow the pop-ups you get yet more fake help sites with free software available. If i had system backup i'd have done that a long time ago but unfortunately my norton setup is a trial/tease. It's $50 bucks for the upgrade which I should have just gone ahead and spent. Well, I hope this explains enough, any help would be much appreciated. Here's my hijack this log:

Hello antles,

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. The codec you downloaded is a trojan. Do this.


You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a Notepad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Download SmitfraudFix
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Download and install the 30 day trial of AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 to your desktop.
  • Once you have downloaded AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5, locate the icon on the desktop and double-click it to launch the set up program.
  • Once the setup is complete you will need run Ewido and update the definition files.
  • On the main screen select the icon Update then select the Update now link.
  • Next select the Start Update button, the update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the Scanner icon at the top of the screen, then select the Settings tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on Recommended actions and then select Quarantine <-- Dont forget this
  • Under Reports
  • Select Automatically generate report after every scan
  • Un-Select Only if threats were found
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5 <-- Do not run the scan yet.
Boot your computer into Safemode
  • Go to Start> Shut Off your Computer> Restart

Tutorial if you need it How to boot into Safemode

  • Once in Safe Mode, open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
  • Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.
  • You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.
  • The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".
  • The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it doesn't, please restart into normal Windows.
  • A text file will appear onscreen, with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply along with a new HijackThis log.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt





Clean out your Temporary Internet files. Proceed like this:
  • Quit Internet Explorer and quit any instances of Windows Explorer.
  • Click Start> Control Panel and then double-click Internet Options.
  • On the General tab, click Delete Files under Temporary Internet Files.

  • Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select Apply all actions
  • Next select the Reports icon at the top.
  • Select the Save report as button in the lower left hand of the screen and save it to a text file on your system
  • make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important
  • Close AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5
IMPORTANT: Do not open any other windows or programs while AVG is scanning, it may interfere with the scanning process:


Reboot normally.
  • Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
  • Select option #3 - Delete Trusted zone by typing 3 and press Enter
  • Answer Yes to the question "Restore Trusted Zone ?" by typing Y and hit Enter.
Note, if you use SpywareBlaster and/or IE-SPYAD, it will be necessary to re-install the protection both afford. For SpywareBlaster, run the program and re-protect all items. For IE-SPYAD, run the batch file and reinstall the protection.

Post the log from Smitfraud fix, the AVG Spyware log and a New HJT log please

WOW! thank you so much for your help this far. The little alert bubbles are now gone. Here are my new logs. I got the simitfraud, and the new hijackthis, but appear to be missing the AVG anti-spyware log. I was sure to follow the instruction on the 'automatically create new log after each scan' and to unclick the 'only if infections were found' box but after the scan there were no reports to be found under the reports tab. I do, however, see where the infections are quarantined to within the program and could give you a list of those if needed. Anyway, here are the logs I do have.

Hi antles,

Your HJT log is hard to read the way you posted it, do it this way.
  • Open HJT Scan and Save a Log File, it will open in Notepad
  • Go to Format and make sure Wordwrap is Unchecked
  • Go to Edit> Select All.....Edit > Copy and Paste the new log into this thread.
  • Please use Posted Image and not Posted Image
DO NOT have HijackThis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.


Then update your Java,
  • Your Java is out of date and leaving your system vulnerable.
  • Go to your Add-Remove Programs in the Control Panel and uninstall any previous versions of Java (J2SE Runtime Environment)
  • It should have an icon next to it:
    Posted Image
    Select it and click Remove.
  • Reboot your system.
  • Then go to the Sun Microsystems and install the update
  • Java Runtime Environment Version 6 Update 1 <--This is what you need to download and install.
  • If you chose the online installation, it will prompt you to run the program.
  • If you chose the offline installation, you will be prompted to save the file and you can run it from wherever you saved it.
  • Then after install you can verify your installation here Sun Java Verify
I like to to do the offline installation and save the setup file in case I may need it in the future

Posted Image Thats great antles, glad we could help.


How did I get infected in the first place ? Read these links and find out how to prevent getting infected again.


Here are some free programs to install, don't leave home without them
  • Spybot Search and Destroy 1.4
    Check for Updates/ Immunize and run a Full System Scan on a regular basis.
  • Ad-Aware SE Personal 1.06
    Check for Updates and run a Full System Scan on a regular basis.
  • Spyware Blaster It will prevent most spyware from ever being installed.
  • Spyware Guard It offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • Win Patrol This program will warn you when any changes are being made to your system and give you the option to deny the change.
  • IE-Spyad
    IE-Spyad places over 4000 web sites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • Firefox 2.0 It has more features and is a lot more secure than IE. It is a very easy and painless download and install, it will no way interfere with IE, you can use them both.
  • Zone Alarm Here is a free Firewall from Zone Labs, I wouldn't access the internet without it.
Safe Surfin
