Hi, have got a problem, every time I start PC, my Avast 4.7 Home edition (freeware) pop-ups me a message that my PC is infected with VBS:Malware-gen (C:\WINDOWS\file.bat). Tried Avast virus scan, it suggested to move to chest, I did, but next time I start my PC, the same happens. Tried SuperAntiSpyware, it didn't help. Run McAfee online scan, it detected two infections (Exploit-PDF.b and GenericFakeAlert.a), but did not suggested any removal options. Then I found your forum, was unpatient, saved and run ComboFix (disabled system restore first, not sure that was a good idea). Restarted my PC, no more messages from Avast, but then I tried Symantec online scan once more, this time it displayed a message: 1 file infected on your disk drive C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\KB908179.exe is infected with Packed.generic.187. Now I have Combofix.txt file, but don't know what to do next. Please help, need your advice. As Forum Guidelines say not posting any Log files unless requested, I am waiting for your instructions.
