Remember only one AV as you will have conflicts. Sorry just noticed you have run Ewido

Dazz...so you tried the Malware removal and they didnt fix the problem...strange and very hard to believe.
They are highly recommended here,luckily ive never had to deal with them (yet).

If you havnt posted your log there,i would strongly suggest you do.

It can be a lenghty process to rid this hijacker,i cleaned a friends pc of this,using the smitfraudfix process with Ewido among others.

i downloaded the smitfraudfix but when i clcik on it it always says the process file is missing but it is in the directory and is not missing at all. i have posted my log file from hijack this but no responses as yet

dazzlet2004 hi
Go into C:\Program files and have a look at the
various folders.See if you find anything unusual.
If you do then try to Uninstall them from within Control Panel_Add/Remove Programs.

Also try Start->Run->type in 'msconfig'(without " ' ")->click Startup tab.
Have a look at what programs are set to run at startup.
If you see anything very unusual un-tick it ,then
later try and see if it will uninstall,as above.

Hopefully the name of the malware will stare you straight in the face.
Good luck.
