Hello,

I found this website via google, when -frustrated by my WinXP explorer shell going "funny"(lost icons,lost taskbar & start button,etc) and not wanting to re-install an OS yet again- I searched for how others solved similar problems.

Here I found a page describing "combofix", whose instructions I followed, and ... my WinXP seems all healthier now. :thumbsup:

Thx.
B.

PS. the final steps in combofix recommend that, even if combofix resolves malware problems on its first pass (which on my machine,it looks as if it did), one should post the resultant log file onto this site for the experts to review, in case further infections still remain...
I can't seem to find a specific sub-forum for combofix - should one just use the malware subforum?

We are in the process of changing those guidelines even as we speak. But for the interim read and follow the five guidelines at the very top of this forum. Then use the link in the first guideline that says this topic to post your log. Be sure when you do post your log, that you make mention of the fact you have run ComboFix and that you have a log available if needed.

Thank you for asking how to proceed.
