The other night i did the fatal error of running combofix without really knowing what i was doing. My computer had been infected with spyware which i had struggled to remove for a long time, and i decided that i should sort the problem out and get it over and done with. so i installed combofix and ran it...with anti-virus programs running in the backround. it was really stupid of me, and even before my computer combofix told me to take note of the following files


it was an incredibly foolish thing to do as i am such a noob and am now completely stuck, i am currently running my pc in safe mode with networking because if i run it in normal mode it will crash after a minute or so.

if anyone can give me any help with this problem and help me get my pc back to normal then it will be greatly appreciated!!!

You have a heck of a rootkit infection
The best 100% way to fix it is with a reformat and reinstall. Which is recommended
You can try to submit a DDS / HJT log following these instructions:

Any more questions, post them in Am I Infected
