    I have tried the following procedure that you mentioned above and i think i could kill the virus but i couldn't access to my C and D drives. does it mean that this worm delete my c and D? I have 3 accounts. I could run safe mode on the administrator and i could access to c and d. I killed the virus via the window adminstrator but i couldn't run the SmitfraudFix.exe on my user account that has been infected by the worm. It tells that it couldn't run because the adminstrator has disable the rights to access something about prompt..... What should I do?
