Alright here's the deal. I'm cleaning a computer (not mine) and i'm stuck. it's a little pop-up in the notification area, stating that the computer is infected with viruses, and that i should click there to see all available software, and when clicked it directs me to the AntiVermins page.

i've run hjt, smitfraudfix, adaware, spybot, and norton, all completely up to date and from safe mode, and cleaned out a LOT of stuff. EVERYTHING now reads clean, including a scan from Trend Micro and Panda, but the notification is still there, even in safe mode, with only what appear to be windows proccesses open. the computer is running XP professional, completely updated. here's the most recent hjt log.

Hello freehand42, and welcome to TSF


Please subscribe to this thread to get immediate notification of replies as soon as they are posted. To do this click Thread Tools,
then click Subscribe to this Thread. Make sure it is set to Instant Notification, then click Subscribe.


Please read this post completely before begining the fix. If there's anything that you do not understand, kindly ask your questions before proceeding.
Please ensure that there aren't any opened browsers when you are carrying out the procedures below. Save the following instructions in Notepad as this
webpage would not be available when you're carrying out the fix.



IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU DON'T MISS A STEP & PERFORM EVERYTHING IN THE RIGHT ORDER.

----------------------------------------

The fixes we will use are specific to your problems and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

Please only use this topic to reply to. Do not start another thread.
If any other issues arise let me know.

The process is not instant. Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine is clear.
Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear. So lets do this to the end!

Please make every effort to reply to my posts in a timely manner. Malware breeds malware and the longer an infection remains on a system, the more
likely additional infections will result.


----------------------------------------

This system is still showing a SmitFraud infection and other malware.


----------------------------------------

DOWNLOADS


CLEANUP! version 4.52 – TEMP FILE CLEANING


Please download Cleanup! and install it. You will use this later.

Alternative link Cleanup Alt


*NOTE* Cleanup deletes EVERYTHING out of temporary folders and does not make backups.



AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5



Please download AVG Anti Spyware

Use the link at the bottom of the page under "AVG Anti-Spyware Free for Windows"





  1. Install AVG Anti-Spyware 7.5.
  2. Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch AVG A-S 7.5
  3. On the top of the main screen click Shield
  4. Click the word active to change it to inactive
  5. On the top of the main screen click Update.
  6. Then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  7. I also recommend changing the "Update interval" to something more reasonable like 12 hours.



SMITFRAUD FIX

Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.



ComboFix



1. Download this file - You MUST save it to your desktop

3. When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply

Note:
Do not mouseclick combofix's window whilst it's running. That may cause it to stall
