Hi I this is my first post on BC. Forgive me if I don't use all the correct terminology. I am a beginner here.
Somebody ran ComboFix on my computer but evidently they did not remove the program correctly. There are 12 registry files that SpywareDoctor lists as infections. After speaking with tech support they assured me that the files were simply false positives left over from ComboFix. My question is how do I remove those registry files. Can I simply remove those files with a registry editor? Or do I have to reinstall and then uninstall ComboFix again. Spyware doctor suggested just adding those files to their threat ignore list. But I would really like them gone.
I am running Windows XP SP1 (I know I should upgrade) and Internet explorer 6
Any tips you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

The simplest way is to download a copy of ComboFix to your desktop, and then go to Start>Run and type "combofix /u" (without the quotes). Note the space between the "x" and the "/"
