Combofix saved my bacon and rid my machine of a rootkit :thumbsup:

However it also broke filename completion (pressing tab) in my CMD prompts, which I use a lot.

When I press tab now, I get a tab, not the rest of a filename.

Any idea how to fix this please?

Thanks
Jim

It seems "CompletionChar" and "PathCompletionChar" keys from "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor" are being changed..

I changed both to decimal 9 (tab) and it worked again..
