After running their DDS process, I was instructed to download the BleepingComputer ComboFix.exe.
After numerous attempts to actually download the ComboFix.exe, I did get it on my desktop.
However, it will not run. I made sure my McAfee was disabled and attempted it again. Still no luck.
I even changed the name from ComboFix to ItsTime, hoping the name change might get around the stick'n infection my system has...
No matter what I try, I can not get this 'rat' out of my system.
I am constantly getting 'pdf' files that try to open on my desktop. After about the fourth or fifth attempt, my system will automatically restart.
I also get mysterious audio ads in the background that don't show up on my task manager, as well as various internet popups for all manner of garbage.
Can someone please give me some guidance before I throw the computer out the window? I have too much data to try and start from scratch.
