I am running Windows Vista. Today I had a sudden problem with Internet Explorer and Windows told me it was because of UACD.sys. On rebooting the computer, I realized that Norton Internet Security was not running. I searched on Google, but most of the search results could not be opened (Internet Explorer could not open this page). I checked online (using another computer) for solutions, and found one with detailed instructions for removing UACD.sys infection. However, I could not proceed beyond the first step, since I could not find the specified driver in Device Manager. I found several posts suggesting ComboFix, which I used. It is currently preparing the log report (it has been for some time, how long is it supposed to take?). I haven't run anything since. I see that Norton Internet Security is back up in system tray. I am hoping the problem has been resolved, however, I thought it would be better if someone could confirm that all infections have been neutralized.

Thanks a lot for your help.

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
