I have run different virus and spyware programs to get rid of the program.:personal AV' and DMAILER"
it keeps on spamming my hotmail list and sending out "hey you" or "My Friend"
I have logs if anyone wants to look at them, from combofix.
when I run that program it disallows me from me using any windows programs & disables my internet connection.
I get the only message is " illegal operation file not found' whenever I try to open the Combofix log after it's been saved.
I didn't save the exact error message because I needed to get back online/etc. I have been able to restore to the previous restore
point that I saved, prior to running Combofix.
The 'DMailer' piggybacks along with the log file that I saved to my USB Flash Drive. I do have both logs saved, from running Combofix, if anyone is interested & can interpret the problem. I hope there is a solution to this?
As mentioned before, I am now up and running as the restore point worked, thankfully.
Many thanx for any help you can give me,
P.S.- The only reason we ran Combofix is, we've used it successfully 3 times in the past on our other computers and it's fixed viral problems very
quickly and easily. We were told to use this program by our computer tech guy & wanted to be honest with what we've already tried.
Now that we know that Combofix, if used by amateurs, can cause disasterous results, this is why we posted here.
In our previous post, we did mention all the other programs we've already tried ( AVG, Avanquest, Spybot Search & Destroy, Super Anti-Spyware and
Malware Anti-Byte, all of which did remove various trojans and worms. Malware Anti-Bytes did say it removed Personal AV but we're not sure if all components of the virus have been removed.
Hope this information helps....
Many thanx for your time and assistance, in advance,
