I had something called worm.win32.netsky and it's been a problem for a few days now. I lost explorer.exe and could no longer access the task manager. When I clicked links on websites it would redirect to some advertisement/popup.

I managed to download kaspersky internet security (trial) and it supposedly found things and deleted them.

I still could not access task manager or restore explorer.exe.

I downloaded ComboFix and ran it - within a couple hours I tried Ctrl Alt Del and my task manager was back somehow :thumbsup:

The screen of ComboFix is now stuck at "However, scan times for badly infected machines may easily double" and {it would seem} has not progressed for several hours.

The machine is a Windows Vista.
What should I do now? Close the Combofix? Reboot? ??? ???

Update: The combofix must have finished overnight and then rebooted. The computer is not worse off than before, nor is it better.


What do I do?

Thanks.
