Hello, I have the egodktf toolbar on my IE and I have not put it there intentionally, I have done reasearch on it and it seems to belong to the SMitfraud or fake alert family. I have done the smitfraud removal program that is around the web and while it has stopped the popups and what not it did not remove the tool bar. I was woundering if anyone knew how to remove the tool bar?

Hello xeolhx,

Let's make sure you are free of infection. In the process, the toolbar will probably be removed. Please read this thread and post a HijackThis log here. Once your log has been declared clean, you may return here where we can resolve any other issues you are still experiencing.

Regards,

Ax

good day,

Where you able to stop the pop ups with a free application, or was it a case of purchasing one of the many applications available to you?

Thank you in advance,

Hi xeolhx,
Please don't not post an HJT log in this sub-forum as we don't analyse them here.

Please follow Ax's directions and post your log in the malware removal forum (AX provided you a link to access this in his response) if you require malware removal advice
Regards
paws

EDIT I see that you have posted an HJT in the correct forum so it will be necessary to wait for an expert malware fighter to respond to your log. Sometimes the folks requesting help with their logs exceeds the number of experts available, but rest assured they will get to your log, analsye it and post a response to you as soon as possible.

It would not be sensible for us to recommend you make any system changes until your malware fighter has responded, but once he/she has said that your log looks clean, please post back here in this forum if you are still having issues with your machine and we will do our best to help
