may one ask who has suggested you use the combofix tool ??

I guess are you not aware that this tool is NOT for private unsupervised use?

there fore do NOT run it again unless specifically requested BY a TRAINED staff member on here

you can do serious and irreparable damage to your computer by running this program unsupervised
I suggest you re read the combofix disclaimer?

can you more fully describe your symptoms; what your windows version is and your antivirus and other protection , when was it all last fully updated and run ?and what , if any , nasties did it flag up?

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Please advise what issues you are having as ruby1 has asked.
