I apologize if this is not the forum this would go in but I was told to run ComboFix by someone in order to fix a malware problem and I did and all seems well but after I turned on my McAfee virus protection again after I was done with ComboFix it kept popping up Registry Change warnings because of ComboFix and asking me whether to allow them or block them. I blocked all of them and I just wanted to know if this was the wrong move to make or whether it will screw anything up. McAfee also quarantined and removed the ComboFix file before I could properly uninstall it, so I just deleted the Qoobox folder that was left. I hope that's enough to finish uninstalling it and that it won't cause computer problems later on (there are no problems so far, thankfully).
