ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool and you should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.
Further, ComboFix logs are not permitted outside the HijackThis forums and then only when requested by a HJT Team member.

This forum is only for malware removal using some of the most common tools. Just for the sake, I will let you know how to uninstall Combofix and remove Recovery Console.

Uninstall ComboFix

Remove Combofix now that we're done with it.
  • Click on your Start Menu, then Run....
  • Now type combofix /u in the runbox and click OK. Notice the space between the "x" and "/".

Regarding removing Recovery Console, why would you want to remove it? It's a It is a lifeline, if your computer will not boot and only takes 8mb of space. Removing it is also very dangerous if you do not follow the steps correctly. Let me know if you still want to remove it or not.
