Hi,
I have been reading everyone's messages about how to get rid of the securityfeature virus. I do not know what Hijack This is and all the things everyone lists about what it finds on their machine is greek to me. Does anyone have a simple, easy-to-do method to get rid of this thing?
Thanks so much in advance.

Hi

It will be best if you print out these instructions as you will be working in safe mode.


Download smitRem.exe.http://noahdfear.geekstogo.com/click%20counter/click.php?id=1
Save the file to your desktop.
It is a self extracting file.
Doubleclick the smitRem.exe and it will extract the files to a smitRem folder on your desktop.
Do not do anything with it yet. You will run the RunThis.bat file later in Safe Mode.

* Download the trial version of Ewido Security Suite here.http://www.ewido.net/en/download/
Install ewido.
During the installation, under "Additional Options" uncheck "Install background guard" and "Install scan via context menu".
Launch Ewido
It will prompt you to update click the OK button and it will go to the main screen
On the left side of the main screen click update
Click on Start and let it update.
DO NOT run a scan yet. You will do that later in Safe Mode.




* Restart your computer into safe mode now. Perform the following steps:


* Open the smitRem folder, then double click the RunThis.bat file to start the tool. Follow the prompts on screen.
Wait for the tool to complete and disk cleanup to finish.


* Run Ewido:
Click on scanner
Click Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.
During the scan it will prompt you to clean files, click OK
When the scan is finished, look at the bottom of the screen and click the Save report button.
Save the report to your desktop.


* Go to Control Panel > Internet Options. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.


* Next go to Control Panel > Display. Click on the "Desktop" tab then click the "Customize Desktop" button. Click on the "Web" tab. Under "Web Pages" you should see an entry checked called something like "Security info" or similar. If it is there, select that entry and click the "Delete" button. Click OK then Apply and OK.


* Restart back into Windows normally now.


* Run ActiveScan online virus scan here

When the scan is finished, anything that it cannot clean have it delete it. Make a note of the file location of anything that cannot be deleted so you can delete it yourself.
- Save the results from the scan!

Post a new Hijack This log along with the results from ActiveScan, the Ewido scan and the contents of the smitfiles.txt.

Please download HijackThis.  It will create a directory folder for you in C\Program files. Run a scan and save the log file.  Post the whole log file here.  Do not fix anything since most of them listed there are harmless (some are system required).  This program will help  determine what,if any, spyware/malware is on your computer.
