I have been fighting this for a week now and cant get rid of it all. I have to keep clicking in this box just to type this. I have an additional explorer.exe running in task manager that eats anywhere from 50 to 90% of cpu. I followed the 15 steps as best I can and have attached the 3 logs you requested in the instructions and have run all of the tools. SS&D still found smitfraud.core when i ran it in safe mode even after running the tool prior to rebooting. Please help! I really can't do a reformat Thank you for your time. The panda antirootkit found nothing.
