    I thought AVG would protect my computer but you get what you pay for. I download the the Pctools software and it did fully remove smitfraud and finally I have my computer back. The scan did take about an hour but seems to of gotten it all on the first full scan. Thanks for telling me what actually works at removing smitfraud.

    Unfortunately, SmitFraudFix.exe does NOT work for Vista/Windows 7. Apparently, Spyware Doctor w/Anti-virus is about the only way to eliminate a SmitFraud from a Vista/Windows 7 environment. However, in reading several reviews of Spyware Doctor (e.g., CNet), a common complaint is that Spyware Doctor really slows down the computer on which it’s installed.

    Any hopes of SmitFraudFix being updated to be able to run in Vista/Windows 7?

    Smitfraudfix.exe just isn’t that supported any more. So most likely it will not.

    As far as the SDA client slowing your system down. I don’t know what you read but SDA does not have a huge increase of processing power at all to your computer. I use the 2010 on my main 3 computers and on a few test computers I use to infect viruses with. It slows your system down as does all antivirus clients but I can not notice any measurable difference. Then again all my computers do have at least 2G’s and the main ones have at least 4Gigs/

    I would recommend simply trying the free trial for a few days and see for your self if it slows your computer down. You will notice any computer being slow when a virus scan is being done.

    FYI: Spybot Search and destroy and Malware bytes are two other alternatives to use. While the free versions don’t offer that good of protection they sure work well to help remove threats.
