yes i deleted most of my viruses downloaded combofix, avast anti virus, and hijack this, and malware bytes and got rid of them (im not sure if i deleted ALL of them but im sure i deleted the most harmful ones).
i couldnt get the menu with options to turn things on or off ever since i downloaded combo fix, any idea how to get the option menu?
Did you run Combofix after you downloaded it? Did someone trained in the use of Combofix direct you to use it or did you decide to do it on your own?
There is a possibility that your issue is a result of running Combofix if you ran the program.
Please note the message text in blue at the top of the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.
ComboFix It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when
instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained in the use of the program.
ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance
and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use.
Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.. Using this tool incorrectly could
lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing
it from ever starting again.
It's also possible that you are still infected, since you mention you got rid of "most" of the viruses, and (im not sure if i deleted ALL of them but im sure i deleted the most harmful ones)
someone told me to download it and run it and delete my infected files, that all he said.
i only know that combofix is not the problem to my computer shutting down every now and then because at the time i never downloaded combofix or used it, my computer was already shutting down, most of teh time its when i play computer games. My computer also couldn't start up, and it is after my sister got my computer fixed, i can start up again but the shutting down problem from time to time keeps happening. And then that when i downloaded all these anti virus stuff and combo fix and ran it, it helped me clean my computer and my annoying "anti-virus" malwares.
so combo fix couldn't be the problem, i also want to get my setup menu up, but ever since i downloaded combo fix, i can't get my set up menu when the computer starts, so that probably what combofix did.
for my computer i bring the set up menu from the screen that tells the computer info. and i press the DEL button, but now i can't get it up and that screen takes a long time to load and i need to press enter to get it started. SO that probably what combofix did but i'm not sure.
and my computer don't shut down when i come to this forum, my computer shuts down when i play flash games and other computer games such as age of empire and stuff.
