I have a computer running win32 Vista and today I had a trojan "packed.win32.tdss.m" in my computer. I have a ZoneAlarm security suite which was not updated for about a week or so. My antivirus was finding this trojan but couldn't delete it, my only option was to "delete on startup" except evrytime I started up the computer, ZoneAlarm would give me an error and do absolutely nothing, and it would subsequently find the virus again in its scan!
So I googled for people with the same problem, I came across a post where a moderator had suggested the use of "combofix.exe" to someone with a similar problem. I renamed the Combofix file ran it and it went through its scan and now apparently it has marked a lot of registries for deletion (i'm not sure) and now nothing works. Every time I try to run a file it says "illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion"
I'm not very computer savvy but I searched for the "combofix" tutorial and it forwarded this forum as a place where I can get suggestions on what to do with the log file that is created. I have not touched the computer since its original combofix restart, and right now I'm using my friend's computer to write this email.
I'd appreciate any help that you can give me.
