Provide some basic information. What version/edition of Windows this has? What antivirus program is installed? Has it ever been without antivirus?
No, Combofix will not do the proper job of inspecting the system if you slave (or connect to another pc).
It would need to be started from within the "problem pc's" Windows.
But much more important, Combofix should never be run without guidance
from an experienced antimalware expert.
Never run it on your own !
Advise if you have tried to restart your system in Safe mode with Networking
As the pc is restarted, tap & retap F8
Get Advanced Bootup Options.
Use the Up or Down arrows on your keyboard and select Safe mode with Networking
What is the virus or corruption you refer to? Filenames / details would help. What anti-malware tools have you tried?
