OK, first time here, but I got both Smitfraud_C and outerinfo with winpop last weekend (don't know how). I've done fair amount of checking around online, and have kept the computer unplugged from internet, since I had to keep my mouse-click finger poised constantly to avoid connecting, and was running Spy Bot S&D about every 15 minutes and getting a big batch of adware each time.
I have downloaded SmitRem.exe, OiUninstaller.exe (from the outerinfo site, so don't know whether to really trust or not) Combofix.exe (which some people have said is touchy), and two hosts programs. Copied all to media and then copied to desktop of the affected computer (XP) to avoid internet connection. All untouched and waiting on the desktop...
My main question at this point is: should I deal with one at a time? and if so which one first?
I've found specific instructions for both, but not both together, one seems to indicate just running all fixes in normal screen, other says must run in safe mode.
I have hijack this file. Anybody have thoughts, knowledge???
