Hi Guys!

I have a rather quick question.

By chance can you retrieves files deleted by combofix? turns out i ran combofix on a infected computer that had the ACT! software install'd by Sage. I believe it detected it as a false positive so it automatilly deleted everyone under the ACT! directory. Turns out ACT! is important software I required, and I don't have the CDs for it. :flowers:

I'm hoping there is a simple command or something i can do to retrieved those files. As a last alternative i will run recovery software, but maybe you guys know an easier way. :thumbsup:

Hello VCORE.

Please note that ComboFix is not for use without supervision in case things such as this occur.

Post a new topic in the HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal Forum. Include in that topic a copy of the ComboFix log (C:\ComboFix.txt).

Please do not post any logs outside of the forum mentioned above. After the new topic has been created, give me a link to it here.

With Regards,
The Panda
