Ok, so nothing was wrong with this computer that I ran the combofix on, but I wanted to be sure cause I have a different computer on my network that has been having problems with rebooting. So I ran ComboFix and now have this log file that I THINK says there is nothing wrong, but since I don't know much I figured I should ask an expert. Hey experts, I NEED HELP :thumbsup:

Thanks

Michael

Hello tvguru,

You must feel that you are running in circles here. I just spotted your logless topic in the HiJack This forum and was about to move it to the Am I Infected forum when I saw this identical topic which had been closed as well as the one in the XP forum which also has been closed. Given that, I am deleting the one in the HiJack This forum and reopening this topic.

So I ran ComboFix and now have this log file


ComboFix 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." It is 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.

Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.

. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.

Read and abide by the disclaimer people. It's there for a reason. Stick to running and protecting yourself with a good AV and firewall and an anti-malware scanner or two. If you feel you need a second opinion, try running online scans. If you feel you might need surgery, come here to BC and ask for help--that is what we're here for.

As stated before, we do not analyze those logs in this forum. If you wish to post in the HiJack This forum, you need to follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you cannot produce the DDS logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Thanks for noticing I'm running around in circles. That said, I GIVE UP. Please delete me from the ranks. All my posts and my account.

Cheers,

Michael
