My name is Stuart, live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney in Australia and I am 51 yr old. I would place myself as partially competent in PCs. I came to this site due to the Major Geek site directing me here for the Combofix and found that Bleeping Computer is also a great site for tools and fixes. I have a laptop that I used to use at work and now am temporarily using it at home until I build a new system with Corei7. The laptop had Mcafee antivirus but I was not getting updates at home because I did not know the company login for updates. Once when I was browsing the internet, I was notified that I did not have antivirus running. Not being familiar with this I starting looking at how to turn it (Mcafee) back on. After a while I noticed that it had been turned back on but not from anything I had done. I suspect that malicious software had turned off Mcafee, planted a virus then turned Mcafee back on.
Anyway I ran the Major Geek process for cleaning out malware (including Combofix) and now have several logs which I assume I need to post to determine if there is still any problems.
So hello from Aussie Stu, username ginastu (guess what my wifes name is)
