I recently used combo-fix on 2 of my compters infected with Hack Tool: App/psExec.Gen. I was instructed to do so by Webroot support. However since I have used it There are certain things on my computer that just don't work right anymore.

I was instructed once before to use Combo Fix to remove a virus or trojan, I ended up restoring my PC to it's original state because of the mishaps after combo fix.

Of course Webroot can't help me with those issues. Grrrr!

Certain things like plug and play aren't working, the devices pluged into a usb port like an external hard drive. Ipod, MP3 players don't automatically start anymore. or arent acknowledged at all.

So my question to you is how can I repair my pc after Combo Fix? Is there a way to see what Combo Fix did and how to undo it? All except the Hacker-Tool of course.

Combofix is available for those getting assistance by experts in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

Why for only those members?

It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. As such, no one should be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

That's the decision by the creator and we will abide by that decision.

I dont think it will hurt to give this little tidbit. It appears your autoplay was disabled. This is actually a good thing as it turns off a popular way for many types of malware to be installed on your computer. We suggest you keep it disabled, as you can always autoplay any drive by right-clicking on the drive letter in My Computer. If you still want to enable it, you can run this program that will try and diagnose your autoplay issues:

Microsoft Autoplay Wizard
