Hi there.

I'm new to all this and I hope I'm in the right place to ask for some help. My computer was infected with the Packed.Win32.Monder.gen virus as told to me by my f-secure antivirus software. Anyway, after searching the web, it seemed that cleaning with Combofix would do the trick. I downloaded the program along with the appropriate recovery console from Microsoft and ran Combofix. Anyway, it seems to have cleaned my computer except I have lost my background picture and cannot restore it - it throws the following message; Cannot find 'file:///C:/WINDOWS/privacy-danger/index.htm' Make sure the path or Internet adress is correct.

The internet is connected and everything else seems to be working as before. What can I do to fix up this problem?

Thank you in advance
Kind regards

I presume you are unaware of the risks involved with running combofix unsupervised?

ComboFix logs should not to be posted outside the HijackThis forums. It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

you may have discovered why this tool is NOT to be used without EXPERT guidance

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

@da chew is this link actually correct as it seems to go to another member' s thread and not direct to a pinned set of instructions on here?

good catch ruby, post edited

I was asking just for the scan, not the fix, as I would be very cautious running the fix after combofix has already been run

I just wanted them to run a smitfraud scan, no fixes, and let's look at a log and see what's up

the experts would have analyzed a dss and probably run a special fix with combo or run another tool first
