Spylocked has found it's way into my XP computer. I read a log on McAffee chat indicating that bleepingcomputer had an easy and complete fix. I don't know much about this stuff, but I can follow instructions. The instructions I found here require me to download SmitFraudFix.exe. When I click on that link, up comes a spyware/malware removal tool. Do I use that tool? And will the SmitFraudFix.exe end up on my desktop? Please bear with me. Thanks.

Hey johndi

Hijackthis Log

Please download HijackThis.exe (by Merijn). Save the file to your desktop. This is a very important step! This ensures Hijackthis stores backups should anything go wrong.

Double-click HijackThis.exe. Select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

Allow Hijackthis to scan your computer. When notepad opens up with your logfile, copy the contents back into your thread.


Please download SmitfraudFix.exe (by S!Ri)

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Please could you also post what version of SpyLocked you have e.g. SpyLocked 4.0, SpyLocked 4.1 etc etc
