While trying to remove DSW.Delf.2.AQ from a friends computer I downloaded and ran Combofix without fully reading the tutorial (which I found later of course) and failed to do the following:

"You should now install the Windows Recovery Console. The Windows recovery console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery mode that allows us to help you in the case that your computer has a problem after an attempted removal of malware. If you use Windows XP and have a Windows CD, then you can follow the instructions found in the tutorial listed below."

I also failed to turn off AVG while running the Combofix program.

This leaves me with two problems . . .

One - I still have Delf on the machine.

Two - My only restore point is of course just after running combofix.

I have not run system restore . . . or done anything else . . .

I will now pay much more attention !

Any help or direction will be appreciated.

Thanks all
