Disable system restore this will clean out all your restore points but nasties can hide in there and clear out all your temporary files and then re run your scans, reboot between scans so they can finish there clean it may be worth running them in safe mode.

Don't forget to do a sweep with your antivirus as well, if you still can't shift it after you have scan with the normal apps you'll need to run hijack this and post a logfile to click here

Open Google

Type 'Remove trojan-spy.Html.smitfaud' I had this problem on my daughter's computer. A lot of the offers you will see scan your computer for free but then want a charge to remove. It cost us to correct the problem professionally. There was one Removal Tool I seem to remember on the Google results.

Once you've resolved the problem I recommend you download Microsoft Spyware (free) your problem would not have occurred if you had this protection - it would have prevented anyone hijhacking/changing your Home Page.

Best of luck

I removed this from a friends computer after posting a HiJackThis report on another trusted forum. I was told to download a removal tool from a trusted website and I have instructions on how to do it. If you send me a personal message using the yellow envelope I`ll send both to you.

There is detailed information click here and click here but I think you would be better posting a HijackThis Log at the site Completealias recommended.

Send the Personal Message again. Whilst Completealias is right (Cos that`s the site I used) I have the removal tool and instructions.
