ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored.


welcom :thumbsup: may I suggest you tell us what problems you are experiencing with the computer and run the Malawarebytes tool instead to help us see what is wrong with the computer

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your Desktop.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
  • MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.

    If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • On the Scanner tab:
    • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
    • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.

  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
  • Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.

Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.





please post THAT report for checking :flowers:

what happened was i took my laptop to my son's to help him with some legal problems and about 8 pm that evening, everything began going awry. no prior problems whatsoever. the cpu was running 100% and every program barely inched along and hung up. tried running a number of malware programs, adaware, cleanup, trendmicro -- but they wouldn't run. tried to restore computer to prior start point, but it wouldn't restore. finally noticed that a lot of memory was being used by a bunch of numbered .exe applications that i had never heard of. googled one of the numbered programs and was directed to a post on this site describing how to run combofix. this post said run the program, but post the log to this site before doing anything else as i would need expert help as combofix might not address all problems. was going to do just that, but saw the warning not to post logs, so i wrote the help post. since i ran combo fix, computer has returned to normal functioning. I have the log and can post it, but, well, what should i do? many thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!

AS the advise says

Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored.


and the thread will be closed and locked by Admin (as per this forums rules )

Please instead run the Malawarebytes program as per above instructions and post THAT report for checking :thumbsup:


and was directed to a post on this site describing how to run combofix. this post said run the program, but post the log to this site before doing anything else as i would need expert help as combofix might not address all problems


may one also say it is really NOT adviseable nor recommended to follow instructions on any one elses thread on any site as each persons problems are unique to/for them ; one , yes, can do a google search to see what the problem may be and how others have dealt with it but it is NOT a good idea to follow through instructions on someones thread

you 'live and learn' as they say :flowers:

suggest please re-run the malawarebytes; we like to see a load of zeros in the report :thumbsup:

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free
  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your Desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates".

    (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and unzip into the program's folder.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method.

To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.

please let us see that report too for checking?
