Have you noticed, even if combofix has solved the majority of issues. I mean this software is in somecases a life saver. It still leaves the AV2009 AV2008 etc icons in the past tray icon history, this is easily resolved. Yet, it might be an idea to add a cleanup of these icons, although harmless they are still listed in icon history, in the windows tray properties under customize.
Lemme know what you think.
Thanks for all the help these forums have given me and especially combofix.

Long live Bleeping Computer

There are a few things that need to be done when using Combofix. Which is why we strongly urge people to only use this tool under the guidance of one of our HJT team members
There is the possibility of making your computer worse than it was.
As big and as many times it is posted, people just apparently do not see the warnings

I was by no means, wanting to say that combofix solves all problems and/or doesnt or can't cause major damage. Thanks for the reminder Mark. But the tray icon fix may be a small bonus.
