SmitfraudFix, a tool for Windows 2000 and XP, has got 3 separate options:
– option #1 displays infected Smitfraudwise files (run option #2 in case of displayed files).
– option #2 deletes infected files and is to be run if option #1 showed their presence.
This operation is to be performed in Safe mode.
– option #3 is independent and will be run to re-initialize the Trusted and Restricted Sites zones (O15 lines on a HijackThis log).
This option must not be run by chance as protection information might be in this Restricted Site zone!
Given the recent random file names, this step must be part of an infected hard disk file removal procedure and a system cleaning by Ewido or similar.

A reboot may be needed to finish the cleaning process. The report can be found at the root of the system drive, usually at C:\rapport.txt.
Option 3 – restore Trusted and Restricted site zone:

process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a « RiskTool ». It is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between « good » and « malicious » use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user (see Command Line Process Viewer/Killer/Suspender).
