My uncle was told to run COMBOFIX.EXE in TSG forums,
we have a problem with it hence posting here as requested by instructions

it appears that XP Remote Assistance wont connect/start since running it - it worked perfectly beforehand....

we have used REPAIR on connection and internet is working OK... why is this and what can be done to repair it?

Do you know what combofix did to fix your system?
If not, then it's likely that the easiest "fix" would be a repair install of Windows
If you've got IE7 installed, read this first!!!: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964
Then, here's the procedure for a repair install: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
