Have you scanned your system for viruses? Use your Norton to see if it can find anything nasty lurking in your system.


i ran a scan twice and i had a few things but 2 of them won't get deleted


Hello, salty,
==Download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri) from http://siri.urz.free.fr/Fix/SmitfraudFix.zip
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
- Restart your computer in Safe Mode.
- Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click SmitfraudFix.cmd, select option #2 - Clean [type 2 and Enter]
You will be prompted: "Registry cleaning - Do you want to clean the registry?"; answer Y and Enter [which will remove the desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection].
The tool will next check if wininet.dll is infected- if it is you will be prompted to replace the file ; type Y and press "Enter".
It will also create a log named rapport.txt in the root of your drive, eg: Local Disk C:\
Restart in normal Windows. Please post C:\rapport.txt
[You may also have to restore your desktop background...
If so, go Start >run, type regedit and <enter>. Navigate to this key:
Please export that key: in the left pane highlight system with a lclick, go File, export... , save as bluewall with file type .txt. Close regedit and post that txt file.]

You may find this page interesting:

Please post C:\rapport.txt and a fresh hijackthis log.
