may one ask which malware expert instructed you to run the combofix as one asumes you are aware that you should NOT be running Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malaware trained expert? did you read the tutorial and more specifically the Combofix disclaimer at
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix


'Combofix is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be used under the direction of an expert. It is NOT for private use. You should NOT use Combofix unless a Malware Removal Expert has told you to. Improper use of this tool can seriously damage your operating system and may even prevent it from starting again.

you may wish to advise us what tools you DO have on the server computer including the windows version

I didn't get the advise of anyone , i read the tutorial though and i ran comboFix just before formating the PC to see how much effective it is, and i was amazed, anyways all the data are locally and remotly backed up.

im not insane to run combofix on my companies user infected PC without beeing full aware of the consequences, unless it is illegal to use it without a lisence or anything, but i suppose its a freeware.

Anyways it didnt run on all machines, on some of them i double cliked it started loading then stoped before reaching the blue Window.

Basicly im havimg a problem with a virus beeing detected by Symantec as Bloodhound.Packed.jmp and the files found are DLLs located in the Local setting hidden folder and i am not able to make the PC show hidden folders , i guess because of the virus, so any suggestions to remove Bloodhound?

Thanks for your advise.
