I had a virus on my computer which caused a lot of damage that could not be fixed even after the virus was removed. I used Combofix in the process of trying to remove the virus, but it didn't seem to finish properly.
I restored the C: drive using Genie Backup's Disaster Recovery option which worked well. Now I have a folder named C123omboFix in my C: drive (about 6.8 Megs) which seems to be an image of My Computer with the drives listed and some of the content of my C: drive on it as well.
If I change the files in the C123onboFix folder, the change also takes place on my C: drive. It seems to be an active image of the drives and some of the files on my computer.
I suspect that deleting C123omboFix folder would also delete the files from my C: Drive.
I need some serious help here..

Tell me the exact location of the FOLDER. Is it C:\C123onboFix ? Does it have the icon of "My Computer"? If so, you may delete it.
