SmitFraudFix is a freeware utility tool that specialized on spyware, malware and adware removal. What most antivirus software can't handle, SmitFraudFix can. It is very effective that I have this software in my flash drive all the time. If a client complained that their computer is very slow or are having annoying pop-ups and weird activities, I run this software first before doing any software troubleshooting. The maker (siri) updates this software regularly so I advise that you download the latest version first before using it to any computer.
Unfortunately, SmitFraudFix offers no real-time protection, which means that you can only remove parasites when your system has already been infected, and the damage could be already done.

How to use SmitFraudFix
Special Notes: It is highly recommended that you use SmitFraudFix under Safe Mode for maximum removal. I encountered some malware that prevents SmitFraudFix from running or adware that refuse to be deleted. Booting in Safe Mode prevents these kind of problems. In case you still want to run smitfraudfix in normal mode, save all your work first because smitfraudfix closes some if not all programs running. Smitfraudfix also replaces your wallpaper after running (this is because, some adware/malware changes the wallpaper to scare the user that their system is infected with viruses that were never there).
1. Boot in Safe Mode. Log-on using the Administrator account or any account that has administrator privileges. You may also want to turned off system restore.
2. Run SmitFraudFix.
3. A window will appear. Press any key at the first screen.
4. Select number 2 and press enter to clean any infection your computer might have.
5. A window will appear that will ask you if you want to clean the registry. Answer Y (yes) and press Enter in order to remove the hijacked Desktop background and clean registry keys associated with the infection. Sometimes it will seem like your computer hangs up at this stage. That is normal. It will take 3 minutes up to one hour depending on the computer. Though, I usually closes the window if it takes 10 minutes or more (I'm not that patient when it comes to this thing) and then fire up explorer.exe.
6. Restart your computer to normal mode.
If you are still experiencing some adware/malware/spyware infections, you can use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Tool (MBAM) or download noob killer by leerz in conjunction with smitfraudfix.
