My daughter's computer was hit with spy bleeping locked and thankfully we found this wonderful website to help us out Smitfraudfix (downloaded from the instructions page in the spyware/malware reading room) cleaned it up beautifully - her home page was no longer hijacked, the annoying recurring error message went away, the "toolbar" went away - everything. One problem has cropped up, though: she can connect to the internet via IE7 just fine after rebooting. However, if she closes the browser window and opens another, IE7 cannot connect to the internet. She tries disconnecting (wireless) and reconnecting and it does no good. If she reboots, she can connect again with the first browser window and surf away. However, if she opens a second browser window (while keeping the first open), that one can't connect. I'm sure some setting needs to be tweaked but I'll be darned if I know what.
OS: Windows XP, sp2
ISP connection: wireless
