Closing HTML docs (webpages under const.) redirects to......

Closing HTML docs (webpages under const.) redirects to http://www.asafetyprocedure.com/. Off line it tries like hell to connect. On line it goes to the badguy site where a large image/alert tells you your system is infected and to download their crap.

If I switch pages thru my menu, home to faq to policy to signup, etc. no problem. Only when I close the window.

I just saw, you had a long thread in the XP forum and you had disabled isfmdl.dll.

I can only assume, it was this BHO:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {CFE15135-C591-4000-A55E-A50E5F9F82BC} - C:\Program Files\Video Add-on\isfmdl.dll

Did you already uninstall via Control Panel:

Video Add-on ?

Go into SAFEMODE and delete the folder C:\Program Files\Video Add-on

Reboot into normal mode.

Did you DELETE the above BHO?

Maybe it also would be a good idea to download :


* Double-click SUPERAntiSpyware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
* An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
* If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download and unzip them from here.)
* Under "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences button.
* Click the Scanning Control tab.
* Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
o Close browsers before scanning.
o Scan for tracking cookies.
o Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
* Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen.
* Back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
* On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
* On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan.
* Click "Next" to start the scan. Please be patient while it scans your computer.
* After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
* Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
* A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
* If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes".
* To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
o Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
o Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
o If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
o Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
* Click Close to exit the program.

I did not safemode but I disabled isfmdl.dll with BHODemon.

I went to SuperAntiSpyware, got the Pro, the Super Ad Blocker program, the ongoing update, the CD (the whole enchilada). I followed your instructions.

I felt it was a good deal & I needed something like that.

I also have Spybot and RogueRemover. Free versions.

I feel that once the browser/htmlwebpage is altered to goto somewhere the damage is done and cleaning up the computer gets rid of what did it but the altered part lives on. Like a nail in a tire. You can get rid of the nail but you still have a flat tire. Can a browser/htmlwebpage be deleted and reinstalled?

I'm just glad it does not affect my main (Juno) IE! It only affects browser/htmlwebpages.

I'm not too keen on going "into" the computer and deleting things... I can HTML all day but I'm very skittish about anything too involved even tho I got my first computer in '97 (50 meg HD, 386)

Because I am one "Wild and Crazy HTMLguy!"

I did it... with this program it was easy!

I noticed ictmdl.dll is not listed in BHODemon anymore then I opened and closed my webpages I'm working on and no more redirect!!! Plus I checked other pages in other folders, etc. No redirect!

I see there is the SmitfraudFix program and a SmitfraudFix folder (on my desktop). Should I hang on to these and run again if needed or run once in a while to clean up the place?

Thank you! Hugs and kisses!

You can DELETE the SmitfraufFix programm and the folder. Reason: SmitfraudFix is being updated regularly, so...... it would be better to SAVE the link to the program IF you should need it again Wink

Happy SAFE Computing Wink
