I've downloaded combofix and findawf but I'm not sure what to do with them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm so worried I'm going to lose my school documents.

You shouldn't be using Combofix unless advised by a malware expert. It's a very powerful tool.

Ok, thanks for the reply! I haven't used it yet. Just downloaded it. I saw on this site and another site some people were using it to show others their logs but saw it was not something I could handle without help.

Can anyone help? I'm being advised by HP to restore my computer to factory settings and I would rather not do that if I don't have to (I haven't backed up my data in a while). I would like to get it fixed tonight so I can use it for school tomorrow. Thank you so much in advance!

Hello dsnygirl and welcome to BC :flowers:

I understand your frustration. Do you have removable media such as disks or flash drives to move your documents to? I'm going to be blunt here, there is no way that you can get the computer disinfected by tonight. You have a very complex infection, and it has been known to return. We are all volunteers here, and only a few have the know-how to guide you through all the steps to disinfect the computer. I know only the first step myself. If you want your computer that fast, reformatting it may be the quickest way to accomplish that.

Please familiarize yourself with BC by reading through the Board Rules, reading posting suggestions, and looking through New User Orientation.

If you should decide to reformat, please let us know and we will provide suggestions for keeping you from getting infected again. If you decide to disinfect it instead, please be patient and wait for a malware expert to get to you. Please let us know what you decide.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
