THE INFECTED FILES WERE SENT TO CA AND THE FIX WAS INCLUDED IN THE RECENT xx60 VIRUS UPDATE OVER THE WEEKEND.
AT FIRST THE MACHINE WOULD NOT ACCESS THE INTERNET THROUGH THE BROWSER BUT IT WILL NOW.
BUT IF YOU TRY MAIL.RUSSGARRETT.COM OR MAIL.EASTERNMEDEYE.COM IT WILL NOT WORK AND GOOGLE COMES UP IN GERMAN.  THESE DOMAINS ARE GOOGLE ACCOUNTS.
CA SAID TO TRY ARTICLE ID:813444 BUT IT DID NOT WORK?
CNN.COM AND OTHER SITES ARE OK. CHROME GIVES A SSL ERROR.
OTHER MACHINES ACCESS THESE SITES FINE.
HELP.

Check this guide on how to uninstall smart Engine virus.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-smart-engine 

First you need to run RKill to stop the rogue process, then run Malwabytes to remove the virus.

If the problem persists, which means other nasties may also be present, then also try ComboFix and attach the logfile.

THE VIRUS NOW SEEMS TO BE GONE.
THE PROBLEM NOW IS ACCESSING SSL SITES WITH IE8  OR CHROME.

CNN.COM WORKS.
