Hi All !

I'm trying to fix a friend's computer which displayed some nasty images for his kids and I noticed I could not access some antivirus sites such as xxx...xxx to run an online scan, and nothing happens whenever I click on Update Microsoft Windows, so after doing some searching, I came across this site and ran " combofix " which identified a potential Rootkit infection such as filename " gaopdxcounter ", so now that I have a combofix log file, what do I do next ?

Hello sll7,

ComboFix should not to be discussed outside the HijackThis forums and then only when requested by a HJT Team member. It 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.

Please create a new topic explaining the nature of your problem in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum. Describe pop-ups and system tray or desktop icons that have appeared. Explain what is "going wrong" with your computer. Note any tools you have used and their respective results.

If needed, we will direct you to our HJT Preparation Guide.

Thank you for using BleepingComputer as your malware removal source.
