Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud!?

Recommended Posts

I've used PC! Click (as well as Microsoft Spyware) but cannot get rid of a virus I have. My screen reads as follows:

 

 

"A fatal error in IE has occurred at 0028:COO11E36 in VXD MM,17.+"

 

"The error is caused by Trojan-Spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c" (I assume they mean .com)

 

"The system cannot function in normal mode."

Please check your security setting."

 

"Scan your PC with any available antivirus/spyware remover program to fix the program."

 

Er, how "fatal" is "fatal" in this context?

 

Any help you can provide would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi benpike!

 

You've picked up a nasty little piece of malware, but it's not as fatal as it suggests. Please follow the instructions for posting a HijackThis log in the HijackThis section and post a log there. We'll be happy to help you get your computer cleaned up. :)

Pacman:

 

Many thanks as that link led to some help that eliminated most of that virus, etc.

 

One problem: Now, when I log on in Normal Mode, my graphics still look as if I am logged on in Safe Mode. Web pages, videos etc

 

Any suggestions as to what I may have lost/done wrong/failed to re-set, etc?

 

Many thanks for your help, though, as much of that virus has now been eliminated....

Hi benpike,

 

PC MightyMax (linked in the above reply) is a paid product service, that says it will fix this specific problem for free. But you have to become a subscriber and download their software.

 

You might not want to get involved with their one-click-fix paid service. On the other hand, it might be really easy, and it might work. :P

 

I'd go with the Wilder's site that pacman linked for good information.

Or if it gets too complicated I'd go with noahdfear's suggestion to post a HJT for a complete and trusted fix.

 

Best Regards
