I have been struggling with Smart HDD for almost 3 days now. I have tried several removal steps but none seems to work. I have downloaded software like Malwarebytes, Rkill, TDSSKiller, Hitman Pro but none of them seems to work with the Smart HDD infection.
This thing started after a friend of mine uses the laptop and browses a gaming web site. Right there and then, a virus scan appears. He said that he clicked on a button, which he cannot recall anymore. To my knowledge, my friend downloaded Smart HDD with that click. I just do not know why this malware was able to overcome the presence of my anti-virus program. I have an updated AVG. It did not catch the malware file so it slips into my system and install by its own.
Now that Smart HDD is eating-up my Windows and recommended tools are not working, what else should I do? I need quick response and reliable solution to my problem.
Thanks a lot.
