Right click on the desktop icon and delete it.

Just for the record, 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.

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

Thank you for your kind reply; but my friend tell me to disable any anti-virus programme and then click to Run>type combofix /u > click on ok. But I cannot fully believe on him, so, I did nothing. Please tell me whether he is right or not. Waiting for your reply

If you downloaded to your desk top the instructions that I gave you should work.

This will most definitely uninstall Combofix from your computer but dc3 is also right.

Thank you dc3 for your kind reply. I have completely removed combofix.exe from my computer. And for information to karbo1 I want to mention that combofix can be removed successfully by both way- I have tried it.
