I am new to this forum and hope that someone can help me. I had a Google redirect problem and dealt with it by first using Malwarebytes anti malware, then Hijack this and finally combofix. It did the trick. Google does not redirect me any longer and is not slow anymore. Combofix created a file named Qoobox. In it is a quarantine file with one file with registry backup and one file with: ftpx.dll (vir).
The problem is that when I wanted to upload my site to the internet, I got this message:
could not create ftp/x com object - ensure ftpx.dll is installed and registered.
So I believe combofix took the ftpx file.
I then looked on the internet for ftpx.dll and finally got a zip at downloadkeyzz. I am stuck at this point and do not know what to do.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, cheers, Alex

ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. 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.

Have you tried downloading this file to your desktop and then install it?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I've looked at your topics and posts, and see nothing about being told to run Combofix.
Who advised you to run it? Was this person a security expert at another forum?

Did you follow the advice given to you in your topic HERE: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/196786/google-redirect-virus/

Garmanma advised running Malwarebytes, but your reply to him was you ran Combofix.

Unless you are using Mabry software you do not need that dll. It is not a Windows file
Mabry went bell-up in 2005
