Hi,
I also used CombiFix at a friends recommendation. I uninstalled it. I keep getting "Cannot find Combofix/HIDEC.exe" error msg at startup and also about once every 2hrs. Followed your instructions on anther thread to manually uninstall. It was not there. Used "Autoruns" prog as suggested but couldn't find any related entries.
Whats next to remove this annoyance?
Thanks

Yes, that is the thread I was refering to. Didn't work for me. Don't have Reg Reg Manager, but did the other stuff.
Next step?

Thanks Mishy,
I got the reg prog, followed the links proceedure, worked great. I am now a loyal bleepingcomputer fan.
Sorry for the delay, things move slow here in the Alpujarra of south Spain.
Cheers,
mannshands
