        I am assuming from your post that the problem has been rectified.

        It is also worth considering removing identifying marks from images when posting information on public forums. For example, you should have edited out your IP address from the posted image. Makes it just tiny little bit harder for the bad guy if they don't have a specific IP to go after!

            The idea was NOT to remove the image, but to EDIT the IP from the image. Open image in MS Paint and blank out the IP. The image is still needed so readers can see what your problem is.

            Did you follow the instructions in the link provided by Tom (Ossian)?

            Don't forget you also have the Dell & HP options to fix your problem.

              Thanks for all your Suggestions

              I run smitfraudfix again

              Now the spyware has cleared

              Now my internet explorer is safe

              First time i forgot to run in safe mode

              when i am running that secondtime i run in both the modes

              Beautiful information
