Hello, i have a problem. My computer is infected by a malware.
It has the name mrofinu1001186 and 17PHolmes1186.

What did i use to try to remove this?

Of course i did use a online scan from Kaspersky Labs. It found a malware see above here.

I did run a ComboFix. But i'm not a expert in computers, so i can give the log but i don't know really what sould i do. I use Google, how to remove this, but i find only what kind of malware it is.

Later i see that can be removed with ComboFix, and i did it quickly. A neighbour knows a little bit more but he is not a expert to..

Please help me to remove this... Or else i should purchase a new computer :thumbsup:

Hello Peter118

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.

Where is this malware located (full file path) at on your system? If the scan saved a log file, it should show exactly what and where the malware was found so post that instead.

What OS (Win 2K, XPsp1, XPsp2, Vista) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? Have you tried doing your scans in "Safe Mode"?
