Combofix hangs when it should start to scan
Posted 07 March 2011 - 08:15 PM
WinXP sp3. MSSE is disabled. I don't see any other antivirus installed. When this laptop came in it had viruses, but another tech cleaned everything pretty well. MBAM finds nothing. Superantispyware - nothing. MSSE nothing. GMER - nothing. SmitFraudFix - nothing. I run process explorer and I can't see anything to worry about. In the MS task manager there are only 38 processes showing and that's unusually good, especially for a Toshiba laptop.
The laptop runs well now and I would be willing to believe that the viruses are gone, except that Combofix hangs, even in safe mode. I'm stumped. I need guidance, so I'm posting this appeal to the experts.
