    Default evil smitfraud

    Hi, i ran into Smitfraud-C and have no clue how to remove it. Until recently didnt even know how to reformat and reinstal XP so as you can imagine im a complete newbie.

    I've searched through the forums and from what i can gather there are several ways of removing Smitfraud (depending on specific circumstances of which i have no clue whatsoever). Any help is much appreciated!

    Here are my spybot scan results and hijack log:

    Hi,
    i can confirm that the entry of Smitfraud-C.Toolbar888 was a false positive and will be fixed with the next update scheduled for today.

    DeskMate.Tahni seems not to be a false postive!

    regards,
    Markus

    Hi soulburn.

    I saw you are running two anti-virus programs which is not a good idea.

    Rule of thumb is one Firewall and one AV to avoid conflicts and loss of program efficiency.
