Hi All,

My PC has been performing poorly and I cannot even start it in normal mode.

I have downloaded a few programs and even tried reinstalling windows but nothing has helped.

I have ATF Cleaner and CCleaner and tried to run combobox but was told it was "Comprimised"

Can someone please assist?

Registry cleaners like the ones you described above sometimes can do more harm than good IMHO...By trying to use "combobox" is this a misprint of "combofix"? If you are trying to use combofix unsupervised (without expert advise from someone specifically trained in it's use) you can render your computer into something that resembles a very expensive door stop.

I would open up a new topic here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

You can recieve more expert advice there.
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Correct Combofix - however, I am aware of the damage you can cause if you dont know what your doing.

Hence why i havent used it...
