I just finised scanning my bro's pc with combofix and when it finished everything was gone.
There's nothing on my desktop except for the recycle bin and IE.
When I click on Start >all programs, nothing is there.
I went into the C:>Programs, everything is still there. All my documents are still there.
Please help.
Thank you,

Your best bet is to post a topic in the HiJack This forum and include the ComboFix log that was produced.

Please do nothing further with the computer until you receive instruction from a HiJack This team member.

I don't even see the log in the combofix folder.
