First of all. . . there is no need for rudeness here, so please use discretion when choosing how to express yourself.
In answer to your question, Qoobox is a related to ComboFix. Uninstalling the tool deletes the directory along with all other aspects of the program.
Hope that helps.
No, BZ... You DID NOT answer his question. It is quite obvious the above user's frustration is warranted, as people have this ridiculous habit of replying to posts with information RELATED TO the questions posed, but absent a clear and concise answer to such. Those types of responses seed the internet with billions of useless posts, creating false search engine hits and wasting server space. It's time moderators started deleting "answers" that don't specifically answer the question posed and stopped encouraging those people who post them. Furthermore, it would be quite helpful for a "helper" around here to answer a question properly even if the initial poster has found an indirect method of accomplishing the task initially asked about. Forums are not on the net for simply 1 single person to get an answer to their question; They are here for search engines to pick up and spread the information requested all around the world to literally millions of people who might have the same question. So going out of one's way to add a response that might more adequately addresses the initial question is far more helpful than posting/confirming a single indirect method that might have worked for the 1 person who posted the initial question.
The question was: "HOW CAN I REMOVE THE 'Qoobox' FOLDER?". It wasn't "How do I uninstall Combofix?" The fact that uninstalling Combofix will delete the folder in question is wonderful for those who have Combofix installed, but for those of us who don't it is a completely worthless reply that DOES NOT ANSWER THE QUESTION.
Since the time that question was replied to multiple times and not appropriately answered, others have chimed in on this thread as well with the same problem and question. Someone even suggested finding and installing a certain software app to do the trick. But still, no response from anyone here who knows SPECIFICALLY how to "REMOVE THE FOLDER". Removing the "Qoobox" folder is all I want to do. I don't have Combofix installed. I don't want to install some 3rd party application to do a job that I can do myself if given an ANSWER to the question at the top of this thread.And so, I ask:
How can I delete the "Qoobox" folder from within Windows Explorer? Or more specifically, how can I delete the protected folder "BackEnv", which is located inside of the "Qoobox" folder, from within Explorer?
I and countless others out here on the Net are, and in future will be, looking for the specific answer to this specific question.
