Combofix is a great tool and I have run it over 100 times. Recently I ran it on a few workstation PC's. ComboFix found some bugs on all but one.
Unfortunately, After running ComboFix on these PC's - My main application would no longer connect to the SQL DB.
The VB application is SQL and SQL Reporting services centered.
I was able to perform a repair install of the SQL Native client (Via add/remove Programs) on the workstations to get a connection to the SQL DB. All seemed to be good.
That is untill I used the Reports menu option and a suseguent menu of my application: 'My Reports'. This is an option to print my reports outside of SQL reporting in a Web (IE) window.
I used Sysinternals to find that after running Combofix; the calls for this function reference .HT~ rather than the legit .HTM etc...
I had always been under the impression that combofix used the Windows System restore to create a restore point. I guess maybe not. My bad..
So I am hoping you can help me re-reg (DLL/OCX) or whatever needs to take place to get the reference back to the .htm.
