Hi, new to the forum so hello to everyone.
Needing some help, my friend :thumbsup: transferred something onto my usb stick for me, I put the stick into my desktop PC and realised there was a folder titled recycler on the stick, I had read about this somewhere before but was too late, the file had transferred itself to all my hard drives. Initially I noticed that my firewall kept being turned off and I had to go in to turn it back on, I then could not connect to the internet to update my antivirus (AVG) and kept getting messages on startup and when attempting to connect to the internet saying about an svchost application error. I have run about four different anti virus programmes, spyware programmes and malwarebytes but could not get rid of it. I ran combofix a couple of days ago and that appeared to find it and quarantine it however I then ran malwarebytes again and the file came back. I think I have deleted the recycler file from the stick just cant get it off the computer.
I am running combofix again at the moment (luckily have a laptop to connect to t'internet), if I post the log up onto this topic could someone please help, (I am obviously no computer expert so step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated)
Many Thanks in advance

Combofix should not be run without supervision. Please read the disclaimer

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
