The popup messages can say:

  • Trevor says:

    Thanks alot for the software it saved me loads of time

  • Alex in Richmond, Virginia says:

  • Russ in Hawaii says:

    Death to all f**kin’ trojans!

    senk ju zery mach, it worked :)

  • Bob M says:

    This worked perfectly! Just like a charm!

  • Rolf says:

    Hi everyone.
    I hope you can help me! Since the start of the year, my homepage has ALWAYS opened as eprotectonline.com, followed by a security warning of w32.Myzor.FK@jf. Sometimes a page opens with adnserror.com, encouraging me to open ‘systemdoctor’!

    I’ve got McAfee ‘Total protection’ but their scans didn’t detect anything or help. Is this because Myzor isn’t a virus/trojan and is ‘merely’ annoying invasive software?

    I have tried to follow advice posted on Technibble before, on:
    [url]http://www.technibble.com/how-to-remove-syssecuritysitecom-w32myzorfk/[/url]
    As instructed, I:
    1) Downloaded SmitRemFix.zip to my c drive (although I wasn’t sure I did the right thing to ‘extract’ before restarting!)
    2) opened safemode
    3) opened the Smitfraud folders and double-clicked SmitFraudFix.cmd
    I couldn’t follow the advice further as I got the following message:
    Process.exe file missing. Unzip all the archives into a folder (This was under a title of c\windows\system32\cmd.exe).

    Sorry if anything I’ve said is obvious or sounds naive but I’m anything but knowledgeable on computer troubleshooting!

    In case its relevant… my WIN.INI & SYSTEM.INI files don’t have lines with Run or load (in WINI) or shell=explorer.exe (in SYSTEM). Could this be a problem? If so is connected to me not removing Myzor?

    Thanks for reading this.
    Rolf.

  • C. Nori says:

    :(
    HELP! My computer has been attacked with w32.Myzor.FK@yf yesterday. I have followed the instructions in the site meticulously but I ended unable to run the smitfraudfix.cmd. The MAIN problem is that the blue screen is not appearing at all and so I am unable to select OPtion 2 to remove the bug.
    Could any one please help me. I am desperate. I have spent almost 5-6 hrs.
    Thank you
    C. Nori

  • Kevin says:

    Worked a Treat Thanks Very Much

  • subbu says:

    thanks, it works well,

    dont understand why symantec antivirus just cannot detect this.

  • Administrator says:

    Subbu, this isnt actually a virus. Its a nasty adware infection which makes you think there is a virus called myzor on your computer and you need to buy their product in order to remove it.

  • C. Nori says:

    Rolf’s Post above was very useful only that it took me a long time to understand what he really meant. See my previous post where I tried to extract the files into C:\ drive and I could never make to run. I have Windows-XP.

    THEN I COPIED ALL THE EXTRACTED FILES INTO C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ directory (folder)and ran the file smitfraudfix.cmd in safe mode AND IT WORKED.

    I believe the cmd.exe resides in this directory and smitfraudfix.cmd seem to like it if placed and run from ……\system32\ folder.

    THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES ROLF and YES SmitFraudFix.
    :)

  • carla says:

    hey my mum picked this virus up on her puter and her windows program is windows vista and i’m searching for a way in order to get rid of it she has avg on it and it won’t get rid of it so i ended up going through her windows control panel and it’s protection picked it up and i’ve managed to get her internet explorer to work i think so i’m wondering if there is any person or people who run vista on thier puter try this way as i don’t know for sure if i got rid of the problem that way as these programs don’t mention about it working for vista so please try it through control panel and let us know how you go

  • Joe says:

    Thanks a lot. I really didnt think it would work, but I was thrilled to see that it did. Your the man :)

  • Jon says:

    As 3 other bloggers previously pointed out, this fix won’t work with Windows Vista. My magical solution was to do a system restore by clicking on the start up button, click on “programs”, click on “accessories”, click on “system tools”, and finally do a system restore to a date before your computer got hit with the virus and you should be good to go!!

  • Dee says:

    Thanks a lot, excellent and easy fix!!!

  • Betty says:

    WONDERFUL…It took about 20 minutes to solve the problem, after I spent 5 hours on it yesterday using other programs.

  • D says:

    Did not work for me. Followed it to the letter, and still infected.

  • s says:

    i just followed all the instructions but wasn’t notified by the program to replace an infected wininet.dll file. it got rid of the notifications, but my internet is still infected

  • Rolf Michel says:

    Great – thanks a lot for the advise – my computer is now clean!

  • zezima says:

    I CANT OPEN smitfraudfix.cmd HELPP:(

  • Yert says:

    Worked great for me the first time. Thanks !!!!!

  • Blanche says:

    Hi, Thank you so much ! This works great even for someone who doesn’t understand anything at computers..Norton didn’t even see this thing! Zezima, I understood sthg though : if you get a message on red screen saying something about your “zip” file, it means you have to “unzip” it. If I remember well, you go to the SmitFraudFix folder you saved , rightclick on it and chose “open with WinRAR”. It will ask you where you want to store it. You can chose C drive as before and create an easily findable folder. Then you come back to the procedure above and it should work.. Hope I’m not making any mistake in explaining because I’m just trying to remember what I just did.

  • Aidan O'Mahoney says:

    Sir/Madam,

    Whoever is responsible for this article and the SmitRemFix programme following, I stand and salute you in sincere gratitude and humble admiration. Was so, so close to spending out with monies, I really can’t afford to spend, to one of those Internet Highwayman for their bogus wares.

    When my fortune is made I will remember the writer of this programme and will reward their honest and socially just actions handsomely.

    Out of respect for their endeavours I will petition my local Member of Parliament to bring this up, at the highest level, to ensure that such dastardly actions are punished with severity and impunity.It beggars belief that this can be in any way legal.

    I close with simple but heartfelt thanks for making this information, which may be obvious to the expert but is definitely not to the layman, so easily accessible, understandable and executable.

    You have all saved and helped so many people from so many different places and it is simply refreshing to know that, even in these modern times, the good in human nature still rises to combat the bad.

    Faithfully yours,
    Aidan O’Mahoney

    Thanks! Great tool! Saved a lot of nervs, and time!

  • Richard says:

    Thank you so much, and I will send a donation. The Anti-virus program I have did not catch it but your program worked perfectly. Tip: I had to Unzip all files after double clicking on smithfraudfix.cmd in order to get to the blue screen.

  • Tony says:

    Ehm, is C/drive the same thing as C/WINDOWS?

  • Tony says:

    And how do i un zip it?, Couse it stand that it does not have an exe file or something

    Awesome!!!! Worked beautifully!!!! Thank you SO MUCH!!!!! Only took a few minutes to get rid of that nasty bastard! As other people have mentioned, Norton does not detect this. I was driving myself nuts trying to get rid of this thing until I did a search on the bastard virus and found your site. Thanks again!

    Hi,
    Kindly advice if it will work on Vista or not, since I have followed your instruction exactly step by step but it seems that the virus is still active & continues to hijack my homepage .
    Thanks

  • Patti says:

    I run a windows xp pro system on a network and got the myzor trojan .. I used your fix .. but had to select safe mode with networking to get it to log in .. ran the fix as you suggested… everything went fine except that it did not prompt me to restart .. I got the blue screen back with all the choices and a message that said close all applications the computer may restart… it never did . so I selected Quit and rebooted on my own …I am free of annoying pop ups but its still in command of my home page… any suggestions?

  • DeeZ NuTZ says:

    VERY EASY TO USE , ONLY A COMPLETE IDIOT CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT . THANX AGAIN , YOU GUYS ROCK !!!!

  • patti says:

    I must be the idiot!!! When in safe mode and I double click on Smitfraudfix.cmd, a black screen pops up for a split second, and goes away, and nothing else happens… no prompt for me to enter “2”. I have McAfee, and disabled everything I could, except to delete it from my system. Maybe, McAfee is in my way?? Anyone know what may be going on or how for me to totally disable McAfee? Thanks, Patti

  • patti says:

    TRY THIS FIRST: Though this site’s SmitFraudFix.cmd apparantly doesn’t work for all cases (as I saw above), it was because of this site that someone reported an alternate and simple and fast and free fix by restoring your system to a previous date; and, everything is back to normal for me – feeuuuew! This fix is faster, and you don’t lose any data files… but, if you downloaded software since your restore date, you will lose that.

    I’m only 15, and the only thing I know about computers is MSN and Games, I know basically nothing about viruses. I was downloading porn when this virus infected my computer, and I was really panicking, its not even my computer and my dad is back tommorow!

    I searched the viruses name into google, and then found several programs which claimed to kill the virus, so I downloaded several programs and scanned for the virus succesfully, only to find that they need you to buy their product before deleting the virus!

    Thankfully I found this program which is extremely simple to use and the steps couldnt be any easier, even I could follow them. Thanks alot mate, you have really saved my ass!!!

    I had this virus on my system and McAfee and Kapersky couldn’t detect it. A tech guy told me to reset my laptop to factory settings and it would clean it up, which I did.

    My browser seems to be better now and I don’t get any pop-ups. My question is, will a reset work in clearing this virus or could I still have it even though there are no symptoms at yet?

    I cannot get the download to work at all: message page Not Available. has it been taken off the site?

  • Alan Ainslie says:

    Update on message 156:—

    The infected PC WILL NOT let me download the Smitfraudfix. Creates a phoney page Not Found response with links to the spoof site! Clever!

    So, download it on another PC to CD ROM, On infected PC take the CD ROM and drag the contents onto a new folder that you create on C drive call Smitfraudfix. Unnzip the folder.

    HOWEVER: make sure that you have any virus protection turned off, else it will delete an inportant file called reboot.exe.

    So with the unzipped files all in a new folder on the C drive called smitfarud fix reboot into safe mode and follow the instructions. it works!
    Now I need to work out how to send someone a donataion as a big ThankYou.

  • Jelmer says:

  • yosefi says:

    you saved me ,thanks !!!!!!!!!!

  • PCTech says:

    Be warned: I encountered this ransom-ware today on one of my user’s PCs. Before I turned to a cleaning tool, I was manually trying to kill processes and delete files that had been dropped by the infection. The malware actually began deleting the user’s e-mails! I’m not kidding. I have full logging on my exchange e-mail server and at exactly the same time I was trying to clean off this virus her mailbox was being purged of mail at about 10 per minute. I believe this was the virus trying to protect itself. Fortunately, MAPI clients (such as Outlook) can not fully delete items from the Exchange e-mail retention section, and I was able to pull all of the mails out of there. If Outlook had been attached to a hotmail or POP mailbox instead of Exchange with a retention period, they would have been lost forever.

  • Phil says:

    Thank you. The SmitFraudFix wiped it out. It was surprisingly easy. Good to have the computer back again.

  • Michael Shig says:

    Wonderful Post just thought I would add a line or two if I could. Just so some others will know that one of the main ways that this file is transferred to their computers. the main way to pick up this “virus / Mali-ware” is by trying to view a video post on a web site, when you try to watch the video you get a message that “**** needs to load the video codex to view this file would you like to download the codex now?” when you click yes the program is loaded into your system and you still can’t view the video most people just think that it is just a bad video and move on. but it is too late then. As it was stated earlier you are asked to download a fix to remove the spy ware but in reality you are just giving the creator of this program your credit number and other info, if you purchased the fix that they were selling on the web site that came up it would be good advice to notify your credit card company to put your number on the watch list for fraudulent purchases.
    Thank you
