I had a problem with a few malware & spyware infections. After scanning all of my drives (3 to be exact) with avast! (which, by the way, detected nothing) and Spybot: Search & Destroy which deleted most of the infected files, I ended up with the malware's regenerating after rebooting the system each time. The procedure went on like this: I ran Spybot, it deleted most of the infected files but sadly after rebooting the virus regenerated. When I called my family's good acquaintance who happens to be a computer scientist, he recommended using ComboFix. I, naturally, printed the entire instruction before running the program and then followed all the steps included in the right order making sure everything went on as it's supposed to. And... voila! It seems fine: the malware's disappeared. I scanned my computer with Spybot which found nothing that time and then avast! which found only 5 minor threats. After moving them to quarantine there's nothing more to be worried about. However, and that's why I'm posting this thread, in the previously mentioned instruction it's written that despite ComboFix's (probable) solving the problem(s), I should nevertheless add the log file to the post I'm advised to write here on this forum.
My question then is this: would this be your suggestion too? Should I really send it here or do anything else, like giving you more info (e.g. what malware objects were detected first by Spybot and then by avast!, how the malware behaved on my computer, etc.) or nothing at all?
Thank you for the answer in advance!
