...Or at least I think its called that, based on the symptoms my computer was showing.

Anyways, I found this website to be very helpful, (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix) but noticed that the instructions asked me to post in the forum before starting. Sorry, I ran the combo fix already.

My computer had these issues: disabled task manager, disabled folder options in explorer, disabled system restore tab, disabled run ability, and redirected any links on yahoo or google (or any other search engines). The combo fix seemed to clean everything up. Here are my 2 questions:

1. This computer was one from a previous employer I got to keep. So there are a number of different Users in the system. I typically use the one with my name RMACIAS. I first noticed the infections here. When I tried to figure the problem out, I logged on as ADMINISTRATOR... no apparent issues. However, after a restart a relogin I noticed the same infections (task manager, folder options, etc...) had spread to this user as well. I ran the Combo fix while logged in as ADMINISTRATOR and it seemed to clean up everything, but when I log in as RMACIAS the same problems are still there. Do I need to run Combo fix again while logged in as this user?

2. Should I post the result log from Combo Fix?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions/solutions you might have.
