New development;

There were only 2 user accounts on this system, Admin & Guest(<- which I could not delete for some reason) I rebooted the machine, and now the mouse no longer works , and the 2 user accounts are labeled as Admin (same old) and the second is labeled as ADMINISTRATOR. I immediately disconnected the system from the network, but thats where it stands now . :thumbsup:

If you are getting assistance from another website...you should not also be posting here at BC's XP forum.

Creates unnecessary potential for confusion.

I know that may persons do this sort of thing (taking the shotgun approach to problem-solving)...but it's highly unlikely that you will receive the same direction from two different forums...at the same time. This limits the ability to solve anything.

Secondly...if you have a malware issue that you want assistance on...you need to post to a malware forum, not an XP forum that deals with non-malware issues.

For future reference, BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

Sorry to bother you so.

No shotgun effect here . I downloaded Combofix at this site, then under the very well detailed instructions, the first link I saw for discussion was "the other site".
After registering and posting there, I realized that this site had a discussion forum. For future tact reference , you could have hit the "send PM" tab and said something like " Hey man, you might want to move this to the correct forum as its in the wrong one" instead of the public display of your green taggedness which added nothing to this problem , and yet another tad of aggrivation to it all.

thanks for that

Please note the message text in blue concerning Combofix
at the top of the Am I infected? What do I do? forum.

(this also applies to links for CF logs posted elsewhere)

ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained in the use of the program.
ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance
and supervision of an expert
", NOT for private use.

Please read
Combofix's Disclaimer.

Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing
it from ever starting again.

Even if your post was moved to another forum, you would be told that "Any posts containing CF Logs will be ignored" and other tools would be suggested.
