How do I remove S.M.A.R.T HDD (malware virus program) - Page 2

post #11 of 12
This is the EASIEST way to get rid of Smart HDD. I got this virus on 4/1/12 and read all the ways I could get rid of it, but I did this instead. Go to Safe Mode with Networking on your computer. Type in "System Restore" and pick a restore date prior to the infection. I chose 3/30/12. Re-boot your computer and it should appear normal. You can use the internet and most icons will be back on your desktop. Now run a "Deep System Scan". I used Malwarebytes, but it did not find the virus. I ran my own anti-virus (Vipre) and it found the trojan and got rid of it. I then typed in "unhide.exe" to get all of my missing pictures, documents and favorites back. Like magic they were all back! This is truly the easiest way and most effective way to get rid of Smart HDD. You must run an anti-virus deep scan once you have done your system restore to get Smart out of your computer. It may look fine, but the virus is still in there until you run a deep scan. I wish Malwarebytes had detected this, but it didn't.

I have no idea how my computer got this Smart HDD, but my computer is perfect now. It was scary seeing that all my files were gone and that the screen was Black, but after you do this your computer will be operating fine. I hope this helps the next person who gets this damn virus!!!!!! thumb.gif
