    Angellaa – Thank you for your visit and comment 🙂
    Alas, you could not have read much as this post has been moved to its new domain.

    Hmm, very cognitive post.
    Is this theme good unough for the Digg?

    vundo removal – There are several tools to remove Vundo, which when used alongside other tools are very effective.
    Combofix I use through email requests for assistance as it does have its downside and needs to be applied correctly.

  4. cotojo said

    Spyware Fix – SmitFraud is an excellent tool that can solve many problems, especially when used in conjunction with other programs.
    I removed your link as I do NOT allow links to paid programs!

    Smitfraud – Combofix is a good tool…in the right hands.
    I have to bear in mind that the majority of users seeking help and advice need simple steps, but I do use Combofix through email when it is deemed necessary.
    Thanks for your input, it’s much appreciated 🙂

  6. Vundofix from atribune does not seem to work as well as it used to. One program I have had great sucsess with is combofix.exe. This tool is very powerful and easy to use. The downside is in about 3% of all cases it can corrupt the OS. So if you are in a jam and don’t want to pay money for a program and have your data backed up it is worth a shot. You can always pay an expert to remove this threat as well. There are plenty of online computer repair companies that will remove viruses and spyware for under a hundred bucks. Just Google online computer repair and you will find a large list of online repair companies.

  7. Thanks for sharing. SmithfraudFix is a superb program and I can vouch to it’s effect. Smithfarud and Vundo seem to be two of the most popular and dangerous trojans on the internet. Tools like these are a big help.

  8. Smitfraud said

    This article is right on. On other tool to consider is combofix. If you use this tool make sure you back all your data first as it can cause Windows to be unstable. Also you should run all of the above tools in safe mode for best results

    Zlob – Many thanks for your visit and valued comment.
    Smitfraud and Zlob really are a pain and seem to be spreading yet again, I will add the Vundofix into the post.
    Have a great week,

  10. Zlob said

    I have been been dealing with Smitfraud and Zlob for years. It seems over the last few months that anyone infected with Zlob will almost always have Smitfraud and Virtumonde. Another free based program worth mentioning is ad-aware and vundofix if you do end up gettiing infected with the Vundo or Virtumonde stains

    Laptop Bags – You’re most welcome.
    Many are also switching to Linux and dual booting, greater stability and ease of use, and much more portable. XP can operate well as long as users have good security measures in place and avoid using IE.
    Have a great day,

  12. Thanks for the post and software download. I’m seriously considering switching to Linux Uuntu for my day to day computing needs and only using XP for gaming.

  13. cotojo said

    Kabar – If you still have this problem you need to turn off System Restore, download the fix as outlined in the post and also download Rogueremover then reboot into Safe Mode and run both programs,
    Hope this helps,

    i have the problem , the spy ware hide my partions c and d !!

  15. cotojo said

    Smitfraud – It is an excellent tool and I have other posts covering removal of other malware using a variety of programs, not being reliant upon one only. Thank you for your comment.
    Have a great week,

  16. cotojo said

    Krishna – I’m very pleased to hear that it worked for you 🙂
    SmitfraudFix is a great tool.

    Have a great week,

  17. Smitfraud said

    Smitfraud is definelty bad stuff. The first time I came across this I had a ton of problems removing it. Now whenever I run into this I do a system restore first then run the free smitfraudfix tool and then run a full scan with Spyware Doctor. If you have Smitfraud I can gurantee you are infected with other threats as well and that is way you need to use other software besides just the smitfraud fix tool.

    Worked like a charm to tremove both Smitfraud and Zlob.

    Microsoft Malicious Software Tool — failed.

    Spybot Search & Destroy — failed

    Congratulations to SmitfraudFix guys…super job.

    Anup – Thank you for your visit and comment.
    Smitfraud Removal tool is a great timesaver for thos who have this infection as many others simply do not find it.
    Have a great day,

  20. Anup Sharma said

    SmitfraudFix is an excellent tool. Hats off to those guys. Such simple steps and still so efefctive. It just cleaned up my laptop of spyware in minutes. Before finding it I wasted a complete day in finding the right anti spyware tool. Thanks a lot.

    Jim – Thank you for your visit and comment 🙂
    Pleased to hear that it worked for you, VirusProtect is a nasty one and not easy to remove using other means.

    Have a great week,

  22. Jim said

    No problem downloading or running the program. Totally worked for me. I was infected with VirusProtect, a nasty Trojan that was very hard for me to remove.

  23. cotojo said

    Anonimo – Inserted new download location which downloads latest version.
    Now, if you had filled out your details correctly I could have emailed you to assist. Your details are secure and never passed to any third party.

  24. anonimo said

    i cant download it either. I had it before but is not in my computer anymore. i dont know whats going on

  25. cotojo said

    Viteche – Make sure that your pop-up blocker is not stopping it. If you are using internet explorer right click on the yellow bar at the top of the window and change permission to ‘allow’


  26. viteche said

    i cant download the file

  27. cotojo said

    Bryan – You are quite right, Zlob really is a nasty piece of work along with a few others.

    Thanks for your comment 🙂

  28. Zlob is a nastiest Trojan backdoor and once Zlob infects your computer it will allow attackers to control your system.

  29. cotojo said

    Gaby May I ask which program you are having a problem downloading? Also check that pop-up blockers are not stopping downloads.
    I have retested the links and they are fine.

    Please try again and if you still cannot download then please get back to me.

    I can not download this file.
