Last week I noticed slowdown with my computer (mainly at startup) and I ran HijackThis and combofix to see what they came up with.
When I ran combofix, it said it detected rootkit activity and reran itself on reboot (as it normally does with rootkit infections). But, unusually, it couldnt create a logfile. The computer restarts and combofix does not get to do a logfile. But, again unusually, if you run it again straightaway, it again detects rootkit activity and reboots/restarts but this time it does produce a logfile. But the rootkit detection that it makes does not seem to go away.
I can post the contents of the combofix logfile if it is required.
