may one ask if you have as yet RUN the combofix? as if you have not yet done so DO NOT unless instructed to do so by a trained malware expert

if you have run the program ; who requested you run it and why did you run it ?

You would need to go thru a Malware training program and become authorized in discerning the log.

Due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer. Instead you should use this guide to download and run ComboFix and then post the resulting log in a forum that contains helpers who understand how to diagnose them. These helpers will then help you clean your computer of infections so that it is running properly again.

Please note that this guide is the only authorized guide for the use of ComboFix and cannot be copied without permissions from BleepingComputer.com and sUBs.

I used Combofix on my PC to know him better.
I did not know that it takes a special training. I did not want to offend anyone with my question.
Thanks

Thanks for the explanation. :thumbsup:
How can I participate in the Malware training program ?

may one ask what you think is wrong with your computer and what you have so far done to see if you can rectify it?

this is only one of a growing and frequently changing wide variety of tools used by the HJT teams

if you wish to attempt to become a member OF a HJT team, as others have said, you would need to apply for admission to one of the HJT Malaware Training schools but I wonder if you really appreciate what that 'committment' and training involves? it is NOT a 'walk in the park' by a long , long shot .....

Thanks ruby1. I understand your advice, but I am prepared to devote the time.
I think this is good place to start. What you think?

Each of the major online schools has some of the best malware removal experts (instructors) in the security community. They will provide you with hands on experience and guidance as long as your willing to make the commitment as training can take months to complete.

Also MV730 I hear some traing schools are very strict- meaning if you don't make a post within two weeks of your last post you get booted out of the school.

you cannot just sign up and NOT do work;

the responses on the logs on forum may seem 'easy' and flow off the cuff?
what you 'see' is the on going result of MONTHS or maybe in some special cases , years of behind the scenes intense hard training and tests ; you NEVER ever stop learning with the HJT work ; if you do sign up for it be prepared for a lot of hard but hopefully fascinating work and be prepared to show up regularly ( a frequency agreed by your specific school's policy)IN school to do the work and to prove you have done the 'homework' ; there are always others just waiting to take your place and if you fail to turn up and work ...you will be OUT ; you need to show commitment as , if you 'graduate' you will be expected to help in many forums with malware problems and the malware is constantly changing and adapting; you cannot sit back on your lawrels
