Hi there! I'm completely new to this so bare with me. I don't even know where to start..I clicked on something a few days ago looking for a license key, and the next morning I was fighting this virus spybot s&d recognized as Smitfraud-c.toolbar888. After many attempts at removing the malware, I finally figured out how to, but something keeps bringing it back into my system when I reconnect to my network. I ended up going through about 15-20 spyware/malware removal programs, each of which I used individually, without any other running at the same time. I will attach my latest log for Hijackthis, I think I know what files I need to delete but I've used three or so programs to try and remove them and it has not worked. I will unplug my computer from the internet after leaving this message and wait for a response.

For two days this infection has plagued me! Any help is much appreciated.

Please do not start any new threads with the same problem if you have not received help yet, because that won't work to receive help in a faster way... on the contrary, because we always try to deal with the older logs/threads first. Many people are posting their log here everyday, so everyone has to be patient. After all, we are still doing this for free in our free time and we can't help all people at the same time.
