  1. Please assist me with this problem, I have no idea what to do.
    I've followed the steps provided but would like to make sure everything is in good working order and virus free. Where should I post my HJT results and any other results from the scans.

    Your system is infected with the Smitfraud infection.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Once you`ve done that, please post a fresh HJT log.

    Regards Howard :)

    That`s good news.

    However, I`d still like you to post a fresh HJT log, so I can check to see if your system is clean.

    Regards Howard :)
