I am currently running WIN98SE on a PC and a laptop.

At bootup, the PC screen displays a Security Warning that Trojan-spy.HTML.Smitfraud.c is effecting IE. The message suggests running spyware and anti-virus software to remove this spy.

I have run Spybot and Adware spyware remover and several passes of Avast anti-virus. All programs have removed spyware and a virus infection. But the bootup security warning still displays each time the PC is booted.

I have a HijackThis log and have had it analyzed with the Hijack log analyzer, but I do not have the experience nor knowledge to understand what the analysis is tyring to tell me.

Please advise.

TIA for your help,

Manjo

Hi Manjo,

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad since you will not have any of browsers open while you are fixing this. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Go to My Computer->Tools->Folder Options->View tab:
* Under the Hidden files and folders heading, select Show hidden files and folders.
* Uncheck the Hide protected operating system files (recommended) option.
* Click Yes to confirm and then click OK.

Download smitRem at http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/click counter/click.php?id=1 and save the file to your desktop.

If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow the download and setup instructions at http://rstones12.geekstogo.com/adawareSE_setup.htm. Otherwise, check for updates. Don't run it yet!

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
1) Restart your computer
2) After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
3) Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
4) Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Uninstall the following via the Add/Remove Panel (Start->(Settings)->Control Panel->Add/Remove Programs) if they exist:

Security iGuard

Run a scan in HijackThis. Check each of the following and hit 'Fix checked' (after checking them) if they still exist (make sure not to miss any):
