Do you have a Virus Warning on your desktop, that when you click on it, you are taken to the SpywareQuake.com website? This is a False Warning, from a Malicious Malware, Trojan Virus, that hijacks your desktop, and then offers to get rid of it for Fifty bucks!
People are screaming like mad, but there seems no easy fixes.
Here are the steps I took to get rid of it in under five minutes.
Do a search using "Regedit." This can be safe and easy if you follow my directions below.
(It would be a good idea to print these instructions out, for easy access.)
1.) In Windows, click on the Start Button, left lower corner.
2.) Click on the Run Icon.
3.) Type in regedit
4.) Click OK
This will take you into the Registry Editor. (It is important to do only as instructed!!!)
Next, do the following;
1.) Click on Edit, up at the top.
2.) In the Drop Down Menu, Click on Find
3.) In the space provided, type in SmitFrau
(If nothing is listed, then exit the Editor, and email me. There are a list of other Names SpywareQuake uses. I will provide you with what I have.)
4.) This will take you to a section with a list of items.
5.) Remove anything to do with SmitFrau, SpywareQuake, SpyQuake, Actual Spy, spywarequakeinstaller.exe, spywarequake.exe, etc.
Leave everything else alone! If you are not sure, do not delete it!
(6A.) Go back up to the Editor, and click on Edit. Now click on Find Next. (If there are no more references, Skip 6B.)
(6B.)repeat steps 4 through 5, until there are no more references to Smitfrau.
Next, Click on File, in the upper left hand corner, and in the dropdown menu, Click on Exit.
Now, run your regular Virus Removal Software, and it should detect traces of the SpywareQuake Malware, and easily remove them.
At this point, check to see if the Virus Alert is gone?
