I recently had the Vundo trojan and ran a wide range of programs to try to get rid of it. I even ran ComboFix, but nothing seemed to really work though so I just reformatted.

When I go to back up a few important files on an external hard drive though, I see that my pr0n that is locked up with the FolderLock program is missing.

My question is then: Is it possible that ComboFix deleted everything in my FolderLock locker? I do not have the logs anymore because I already reformatted.

Discussion pertaining to how Combofx works, what it can or cannot do, what the log results mean, any future plans, etc is not available to the public in order to safeguard and protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers. As such, the developer does not want his tool discussed outside of private forums and therefore we cannot answer specific questions.
