My friend around the corner calls me about once a month to clean up his computer.  Usually, its just a simple matter of running
Adaware or HiJackThis.  But this time was different. 

was helping my partner clean a trojan off of his Dell the other
day.  And to my surprise Adaware did not remove it.  It also
removed the ability to get to the Task Manager in order to view the
processes and added a link to the desktop. 

I found out it was called TROJANSPY.HTML.SMITFRAUD.  It took more effort than usual to remove, but I did manage to get rid of it with the help of a the Geekstogo! Malware removal forum.  I've found forums to be VERY helpful in getting help cleaing up and securing my home computer with ease.  Here is how I got rid of the Smithfraud.
