I used combofix in addition to some more regular programs I use to get rid of malware. I seem to have removed it but i wish i never used combofix. It made my internet connection non existent, changed backgrounds, and one user gets a black screen with only a cursor-->and that is the reason I am here asking for help.

I cannot do system restore as I do not have any prior restore points.

I only used combofix because I was simply following directions on malware removal on the majorgeeks website.

I would appreciate any help.

I can post the combofix log if that would be of any help.

I also have two desktop.ini icons that are now on my desktop that sort of look transparent that were not there before.

thanks in advance for any assistance.

i'll be waiting for a response.

You said that "one user gets a black screen with only a cursor". Is there another user account that will allow you to boot into Windows normally?
