Smitfraud-C virus - Please help

Hi
I need help please.
I have been hit with a virus Smitfraud-C. My desktop has not been affected but I have a pop-up baloon on my toolbar (right next to the clock) which comes from the windows update symbol (the same as the one in the start menu) and it alternates between a red warning circle with a white 'x' in it. In the ballon is a yellow triangle with an exclamaiton mark and it then reads
'Your computer is infected!
Windows has detected spyware infection.

It is recommended to use special antispyware tools to prevent data loss.
Windows will now install the most up-to-date antispyware for you.

Click here to protect your computer from spyware.'

I have clicked this which downloaded 'Spyaxe' but this only scanned my system and acted more like a pop-up as it would not close down and took 3 attempts before it would uninstall.
I then came across your site and have followed all the steps up to this point. I have ran (and followed the instructions for) SmitRem.zip, Ewido Security Suite, Adaware SE 1.06 (all of which were updated before running), This cleared everything except the Smitfraud-C virus. The site then offered a link to another area which then advised to run AD-Aware SE Personal and Spybot Search and Destroy 1.4 both of which were updated before running. Between the two they found 14 critical alerts and 240 infected files which were all cleaned successfully (including Smitfraud-C). The pop-up ballon is still there :( . I have checked for updated on the mircosoft updates site but i am up to date. Ihave also ran McAfee Virus scan Professional Edition which has not detected anything. I have ran AD-Aware and Spybot again and both come back with no reports which suggest the system is clean again but that damn baloon keeps popping up.
Sorry for the length of this but I reckoned I should post as much info as possible in the hope that someone recognises this and can offer some help.
My highjackthis log is posted below and thanks for looking into this.

    Please read these instructions carefully and print them out! Be sure to follow ALL instructions!

    Download smitRem.zip and save the file to your desktop.
    Right click on the file and extract it to it's own folder on the desktop.

    Place a shortcut to Panda ActiveScan on your desktop.

    Please read Ewido Setup Instructions
    Install it, and update the definitions to the newest files. Do NOT run a scan yet.

    If you have not already installed Ad-Aware SE 1.06, follow these download and setup instructions, otherwise, check for updates:
    Ad-Aware SE Setup
    Don't run it yet!

    Next, please reboot your computer in SafeMode by doing the following:
    1. Restart your computer
    2. After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
    3. Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
    4. Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.
    Now scan with HJT and place a checkmark next to each of the following items:

    O15 - Trusted Zone: [url]http://*.winsoftware.com[/url]

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

    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.

    The tool will create a log named smitfiles.txt in the root of your drive, eg; Local Disk C: or partition where your operating system is installed. Please post that log along with all others requested in your next reply.


    Open Ad-aware and do a full scan. Remove all it finds.


    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 it asks if you want to clean the first file, put a check in the lower left corner of the box that says "Perform action on all infections" then choose clean and click OK.
    • When the scan is finished, click the Save report button at the bottom of the screen.
    • Save the report to your desktop
    Close Ewido

    Next go to Control Panel click Display > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Website > Uncheck "Security Info" if present.

    Reboot back into Windows and click the Panda ActiveScan shortcut, then do a full system scan. Make sure the autoclean box is checked!
    Save the scan log and post it along with a new HijackThis Log, the contents of the smitfiles.txt log and the Ewido Log by using Add Reply.
    Let us know if any problems persist.

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

    For 98/ME users;

    Remove the check by "View my Active desktop as a web page".
    Click OK then Apply and OK.

    Hi Crunchie
    Thanks for looking into this for me.
    I have followed all instructions and where you said to place a checkmark next to the items from the HJT i fixed them as well. When I ran Panda ActiveScan I could not see an autoclean box so none of the adwares were desinfected. It also thew up and window asking me to select my profile (which it had as outlook) but I clicked cancel as there was nothing mentioned about this. Hope this was correct.
    Here are the logs:

    Hope this is some help as I'm still getting the ballon popping up with the 'Your system is infected!' message and spyaxe keeps re-installing itself when I uninstall it from add/remove programs.

    Thanks again for helping me out

    In order to clean your PC from infections related to Spyware Axe product, please follow the instructions below:

    1) Save Uninstallers.zip from http://www.spyaxe.com/uninstall/uninstallers.zip to your desktop or HDD.

    2) Extract 2 files "illegal_adv_uninstall1.exe" and "illegal_adv_uninstall2.exe" to your desktop or your HDD using WinZip.

    3) Execute both of them one by one by double-clicking with your mouse.
    *note: they will run instantly in the background. So don't be concerned when you don't visually see anything happening.

    4) Reboot your PC

    5) Your PC is now clean from the infections.

    If you haven't done so already, delete the entire spyaxe directory from your drive under program files.

    ==

    Run HiJackThis, click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:


    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SpyAxe] C:\Program Files\SpyAxe\spyaxe.exe /h


    Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

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

    Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

    folders...

    C:\Program Files\SpyAxe
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\1024
    C:\Program Files\FLFTV Beta

    files...

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchosts.dll


    -

    Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in "Safe Mode".

    -

    Reboot.

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

    After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

    Hi Crunchie
    My HJT log is posted below. My system is running fine now, no more annoying pop up baloon http://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?p=334767#
    Cool
    The only difference was when I clicked the spyaxe uninstall link it only had "illegal_adv_uninstall.exe" not uninstall 1 and 2 but it seems to have done the job regardless.
    Anyway thanks again for all your help, much appreciatedhttp://www.short-media.com/forum/showthread.php?p=334767#

    Congratulations! Your log looks clean - good work!

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

    Now that your PC is clean you need to follow these easy steps to keeping it this way:

    Secure your Internet Explorer by going here and following the instructions there.

    Better yet, use an alternative browser! Download FireFox and give it a run. It is far more secure than Internet Explorer. Or, you can get Opera which in my opinion, is better still.

    Use a firewall to help prevent your PC's control being usurped by undesireables. There is a link to a good, free firewall in my signature.

    Install and keep updated, Ad-Aware SE, and Spybot S&D.
    Run them both on a regular basis, following the manufacturer's recommendations.

    Install an anti-virus. There are some good, free AV's available today. Make sure that it is updated regularly and have it scan your system often.

    Check for Windows Updates. Microsoft regularly post updates for your systems safe running. Make sure to take advantage of this. Reboot when installed and return to make sure there are no others.


    Clear your Temp folders.
    Clear out your Temporary internet files and other temp files.
    Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel >Internet Options.

    Under the General tab click the Delete temporary internet files,
    delete all Offline content as well. Clear out Cookies.

    Also, go to Start > Find/search > Files or folders > in the named box, type: *.tmp and choose Edit > select all -> File > delete.

    Empty/delete the entire contents of the C:\Windows\temp folder and C:\temp folder, if you have one. (Contents but not the folder itself.)

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp\

    In order to view these files you may have to select 'show hidden files/folders.' Instructions on how to here.

    Empty the Recycle Bin.

    For XP users.
    After something like this it is a good idea to Flush the Restore Points and start fresh.
    To flush the XP system Restore Points.

    Go to Start>Run and type msconfig. Press enter.

    When msconfig opens, click the Launch System Restore Button.
    On the next page, click the System Restore Settings link on the left.

    Check the box labelled 'Turn off System restore'.

    Reboot. Go back in and Turn System Restore Back on. A new Restore Point will be created.

    Note that all previous restore points will be lost.

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

    If you have any more problems, post back.

    Happy surfing,

    crunchie.
