How to get rid of the smudges in the background

This image has a black smudge in portions of the image. However when i am in Adobe Fireworks or Illustrator I see nothing but a transparent background. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to make this look better. I either need to make the smudged area all black or all transparent. Either way will resolve my issue. You support much appreciated. Thank you.

I've used photoshop to sharpen the image.  I'm not sure if Fireworks has a sharpen filter.  I actually thinks it's more of an optical illusion that the smudges appear.

Sorry guys my fault posted this question way too late last night/morning
Here is what the logo looks like on the website against a black background.
How can I fix this myself......? The sharpening tool sounds like a good idea. Have no idea how to use.

It's really not blurry, it's just leftovers from some editing or something.

I opened in Photoshop,  created a black bottom layer,  selected the logo with the Magic Wand and Laso/Magic Wand additions (custom selected), then i inverted the selection and used the eraser to erase the blurry whatever.

Thank you .....and yes that was my fault. I forgot to express the image looked normal until you put it on a black background.. The smudges were there just not visible on a white or opaque background. So thank you for the help. I assume the black layer was for the same shape as the logo itself ..... where the smudges are. Is that what you meant.
I used the black layer to highlight/show the haze we were trying to find and edit out.
