I know enough about computers to know that i don't know enought. i can get by and i know some technical jargon. the thing is im the only one in my family who can do anything about our computer. yesterday symantec pop up for email that wasn't able to be delivered started, literally hundreds every few minutes. it takes up so much processing that i can't do anything, and has seemed to mess with a few other programs. i looked on other threads to try and fix it and found one similar. so i did what was told on there which was to download hijackthis. i was barely able to do it on that computer. i emailed the log to myself so i can work off a different computer now. this is what was reported:

Hi and welcome to Daniweb forums :).

You will want to update hijackthis first; http://www.daniweb.com/forums/thread83821.html

==

You should print out these instructions, or copy them to a NotePad file for reading while in Safe Mode, because you will not be able to connect to the Internet to read from this site.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Please download and install AVG antispyware tool

  • Close all other Applications Select language click Ok
  • Click I Agree
  • Click next
  • Click Install
  • Click Finish
  • Wait and AVG will open to the main screen automatically.
  • Wait again a few minutes and AVG Should Auto update itself. If it doesn't click update at top of screen.
  • It is very important that you are able to get updated.
  • When updating has finished. Close AVG.

==============

Please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 only
Close the program for now.
==================

Next, please 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.

1) Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox browser : Click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.

If you use Opera browser: Click Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.
For Technical Support, double-click the e-mail address located at the bottom of each menu.


2) Open the SmitfraudFix folder again and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #2 - Clean by typing 2 and press "Enter" to delete infected files.

You will be prompted : "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry ?"; answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter" in order to remove the Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection.

The tool will now check if wininet.dll is infected. You may be prompted to replace the infected file (if found); answer "Yes" by typing Y and press "Enter".

The tool may need to restart your computer to finish the cleaning process; if it does force a restart, please reboot into Safe Mode again, in order to complete the following step. If it does not reboot, please remain in Safe Mode until further notice.

Make sure to close all open windows/programs/folders. Have nothing else open whilst AVG performs its scan!

  • Open AVG
  • Click on scanner top of AVG sceen
  • Click on Settings
  • Under How to Act click on Recommended Action choose Quarantine
  • Under How to scan all boxes should be selected
  • Under Possibly unwanted software all boxes should be selected
  • On right side under Reports: click on Automatically generate report after every scan.
  • Under What to scan select scan every file
  • Click On scan Tab
  • Click on Complete system scan
  • Let the program scan the machine It can take awhile, so give it time.
  • When the scan has finished, at bottom of screen click; Apply all Actions
  • Click Save report
  • Click Save Report as (Save as window's screen should pop up.)
  • Click desktop
  • Click Save
  • Exit AVG

Close AVG Anti-Spyware.

4) Reboot your computer normally.

If SmitfraudFix did not force a reboot, then you should now see a text file appear onscreen with results from the cleaning process; please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
The report can also be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt

Note : running option #2 on a non infected computer will remove your Desktop background.

5) Post the content of rapport.txt, the AVG report and a new HijackThis! log in your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
