smitfraudfix resets the clock oddly to 24hr format after running and deletes the wallpaper.

I have run spybot, adaware 2008SE, yahoo toolbar antispy (CA), xclean_micro, DRWEB Cureit and Super Antispyware.
Nothing really to report now, just Yahoo, CA antispy reports a koolynoody downloader entry in the registry and cleans that.

Hello tentmakeroz,

If you want to change the time go Control Panel, Regional Settings, click on Customise and then date tab.

Fix the date as you want, and click apply, ok, as much times needed to close Regional Settings.

You don't have problems any more?
Is your problem resolved?
Do you want me to check your new HijackThis log?
Let me know.
