Hi! First post.
I am fixing up a work friend's computer.
He has two users: A and C. He claims he doesn't know where C came from but that's the one he uses. (I Doubt his story).
I finally got A and Administrator to run OK.
I have removed piles of trojans, viruses, etc. etc.
Should I have him just get rid of the C user?
I have run practically every tool on this forum.
Spybot keeps showing Smitfraud-C.Toolbar888 on each of the users.
I finally ran the Smitfraud removal tool in safe mode.
Does not appear to run normally.
The cleanup wizard which gets invoked seems to go about halfway through and unceremoniously disappears.
One time I glimpsed at its status line it was "Cleaning: " a couple non-alphabetic characters. Then it vanished.
The red restart window at the end I have never seen, but it oddly pops up with the initial "You are running in safe mode..." dialog.
This PC has had a myriad bad behaviors.
It probably needs to be wiped and start over. -- Too much effort.
Can I get this thing uninfected and hand it back to my buddy with the caveat that it may be flaky but clean?
