As per instructions here, downloaded combofix to my desktop. the first time i tried to launch it, it came out with a little window titled windows 32 and told me in various languages that this programme only suitable for win XP and 2000. after a while, i tried clicking again. after i clicked okay to the disclaimer of warranty window, a window popped up, telling me it was not safe to continue and there might be a 'virut'. now the icon has disappeared from my desktop.
situation was exactly like what faceman in another thread said:
when i try to run combofix in regular mode I get a message stating that
!! ALERT !! It is NOT SAFE to continue!
The contents of the ComboFix package has been compromised. Please download a fresh copy from
Note:You may be infected with a file patching virus :virut"
It wasnt a specialized window just a generic windows window. no marking or idea of what program created it
needless to say I'm stuck at this point now. I didn't want to try to run it in safe mode until I got the go ahead from you. so what do we do now? thanks
am new here. please help!
