Download SDFix and save it to your desktop.

Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
(Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :

* Restart your computer
* After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
*  Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu with options should appear;
*  Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press "Enter".
*  Choose your usual account.

*  Open the extracted folder and double click "RunThis.bat" to start the script.
*  Type "Y" to begin the script.
*  It will remove the Trojan Services then make some repairs to the registry and prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
*  Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
*  Your system will take longer that normal to restart as the fixtool will be running and removing files.
*  When the desktop loads the Fixtool will complete the removal and display "Finished", then press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
*  Finally open the SDFix folder on your desktop and copy and paste the contents of the results file "Report.txt" back

If problem persists, run Hijackthis and show us the log please.
Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" please don't fix anything yet.

or run Combofix:
Download ComboFix to your Desktop, from either of these locations:

Double click "combofix.exe" and follow the prompts.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you.
Post that log and a HiJackthis log in your next reply

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

Running SDFIX did not fix it... can you think of anything else?
Sorry for very late reply.
Can you paste the SDFix.txt here? the log can be helpful because it lists reg entries as well.

Also a hijackthis log will be helpful.
Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" please don't fix anything yet.

problem still presist!!!
Can you at least show us some logs? like logs from SDFix, Hijackthis for us to go on.

What mainstream scanners have you already run?
Everything we based our diagnosis and suggestions are all based from what info you can give us. we are not infront of the pc, it will help if we see some logs to look at.

Can you give us a log from this tool?
Download WinPFind3U.exe to your Desktop and double-click on it to extract the files. It will create a folder named WinPFind3u on your desktop.

Open the WinPFind3u folder and double-click on WinPFind3U.exe to start the program.
* In the 'Files Created Within' group click 30 days
* In the 'Files Modified Within' group select 30 days
* In the 'File String Search' group select Non-Microsoft
* In the 'Drivers Services' group select Non-Microsoft
* In the 'Additional Scans' group select 'Desktop Components'

Now click the "Run Scan" button on the toolbar.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked.
If it is, then click on it to uncheck it.

Try running ComboFix, in safe mode!  then run SmitfraudFix windows and then run SDFix in safe mode.  you could try running fixwareout.exe in windows.

then try running counterspy.exe  and Hijakthis.exe and locate the registry files that are corrupted, back up first then manually remove them.
