Windows 7 - smitfraud-C.generic

Asked By mauric on 21-Dec-07 02:41 AM
I have run spybot-search & Destroy and I get a smitfraud-C.generic.  When I
press fix problem it states that it has to run at start up to remove when I
do this it just repeats itself that spybot-search & Destroy needs to run at
start up but does not fix the problem.  Help how do I get rid of
smitfraud-C.generic.

Hi!

Most likely your computer is infected with Smitfraud variant . You'd better
use this fix - http://siri.urz.free.fr/Fix/SmitfraudFix.php

Consider scanning with Eset On-line scanner from
http://www.eset.com/onlinescan and let is remove anything it has found .

If you continue having problems , you should post in a forum providing
malware cleaning services .

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
assistance from an expert.  **Post your log to

http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or other appropriate forums for expert
analysis, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
