I downloaded and ran Combo Fix. After it advised me to install Windows recovery Console i did. Then started the scan and a box popped up saying a rootkit was detected and need to reboot. I let combofix reboot itself.
After reboot i have the blue command prompt screen with the text :
Scanning for infected files
This typically take 10 minutes
However scan times may double

It has been like this for nearly an hour and a half.

I didnt want to run a hjt and put it in the designated forum without being told to do so first.

Windows XP pro
Dell D520

Thanks in advance,
Gregg Squires

EDIT ::: I rebooted and ran it again. Seems to have done the trick
