I'm using combofix to clean up some spyware in my computer. After using that, I realized that my computer no longer can share any folder and then my browser sometime cannot browsing (it always state the page done loading) although my download still running.
fyi, I'm using win Vista Home Premium 32bit.
What went wrong with my comp? is it because I used combofix or something?
Thx before..

hi,,,,, the security experts on this site sometimes use this tool as they are trained in its use,,,, i do know that they highly recommend that its not used unless under direct supervision of one of the trained security team.
hopefully on of these very busy experts will see your post and offer advice,,,,, there are a few things that i could suggest,, but am reluctant to in case of increased damage to your system,,,, here is the introduction to the ComboFix tutorial on this site,,,, this will give you some idea of what im saying,,

Introduction

ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.

Please note that this guide is the only authorized guide for the use of ComboFix and cannot be copied without permission from BleepingComputer.com and sUBs. It is also understood that the use of ComboFix is done at your own risk.

good luck.
Figgis,,,, LUFC
