I've been researching the internet looking for a solution to this one, but I can't seem to find it. Anyone have any thoughts on this ridiculous piece of spyware?  trojan-spy.html.smitfraud.c

I really appreciate it.

    Have you tried an online virus scanner?

    Run at least 2 of these:

    Panda ActiveScan


    McAfee FreeScan

    Symantec Security Check

    Pc-Cillin (Trend Micro Housecall)

    Security folks,

    My Dell Inspiron 8200 (Windows XP pro, SP1 only) still has what appears to me to be a Web Host Hijacking Virus, am running Norton AV Pro04, Zone Alarm, pro, have run stinger and Mircrosoft AntiSpyware. See other articles saying to use Hijackthis. At this location.  And advise if this or other procedure short of rebuilding will eliminate this pest.

    First run with the Microsoft Antispyware Beta version with all theupdates seemed to have gotten rid the address, in registry and some other locations, but even after running all again in safe mode, with these cleaners it comes back.  Am using Mozilla Firefox although IE-6 still on machine.  Have cleaned cookies, cache, and temp files (may have to run CMD %temp% again)  What other recommendations or free ware?  Where is this hiding?  In the Registry?  What of the hosts?  I am not that versed in this and would like it to end.  The Home Page is still listed as my normal start page, but this unwante link to a casual XXX site page pops up first, and then my home page on the first boot.  If I close the browser, then my home page comes up first, I think?!!?
