I have an problem where I cannot access certain sites or my browser redirects to unwanted site. A few times I was not able to access the internet at all or a 500 - internal server error message. I have the combofix log. Said something about rootkit activity when running the software as well. Anyways, the problem is reoccuring every few days. I run combofix and the problem is temporarily fixed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

Greg

"ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use"

What do you mean? The software is fully automated, I did not have to do a thing...

OS: Windows XP Home

The next time I recieve a browser error, I will post it but I ran combofix earlier and I am not currently having any errors.
