  1. Pop ups have recently showed up on my computer, My computer then told me I should download a winantiviruspro2006 but that just made it worse. My friends were on my computer before this happened so this may be the cause. Please help

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with the SmitFraud infection.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.


    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name. See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial56.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html


    Go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    The O23 - Service: Firewall service (FWSvc) - Unknown owner - C:\Program Files\WinAntiVirus Pro 2006\FWSvc.exe (file missing) is still showing up in your HJT log.

    Did you stop the Firewall service (FWSvc) as I suggested in my last post?

    You should definitely have HJT fix that entry.

    Also fix this entry, but Only if it doesn`t belong to your ISP.

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{A34B3E49-7CAA-4DF5-9751-DD805068A029}: NameServer = 67.69.184.135 206.47.244.51

    Other than the above, your HJT log is clean.

    Regards Howard :)
