Hi,

After i got a trojan (still dont know how i got it) i used combofix to remove. It seems to have worked. I've scanned with AVG twice and kaspersky online scan. No results. So i presume its solved now.

However when i started my pc today, while booting up it said my BIOS settings changed and if i wuld enter setup to check. Becouse i dont know what to do after i entered BIOS i pressed exit and started to make this topic. I think i just have to press the option "default BIOS settings" (or something like that). But i dont wanna lose data or something bad.

So my question: can i just go back to normal settings? whats the difference?

Please mind that i have never changed any of these settings before.

I hope someone can help me,

Stoeptegel

Load the default settings.
Exit the BIOS saving the change.

You won't lose any data reverting the BIOS to their default settings.

WARNING, NEVER use Combofix, unless directed to do so by an expert. Combofix is very powerful and it can cause your computer never to start again. Unless you enjoy re-installing your operation system, do not use this tool unless you know what you are doing.

regards, Elise

Well it so happens I am Dutch too... :thumbsup: But I can tell you the instructions arent that difficult to follow. I have done my surfing on Dutch sites, but they are simply too small communities.

Anyway good luck!

regards, Elise

There's a fairly eletist attitude over at cdfreaks about infections

Of course it's reflected by some very credible sources

I know this is off-topic, but I looked at the HJT-forums there and I see like much Combofix logs, without being requested and without warnings afterwards.

Feel free to remove my post if its too much off-topic. In no way I want to offend someone, every HJT-helper has its own methods, but it just kept my eye...

regards, Elise
