Hi i ran this today and it deleted everything in my start/program files. I have since uninstalled the combofix.exe from my desktop using the uninstall utility. My combofix log has also been deleted. Is there any way to recover these or are they gone permantly? Help!!!

P.S. I am computer literate, but not at a high level.

Thanks,
Chris

Sorry to be a pain, but does it appear that i am at the end of my rope? After reading other posts on here, it appears that i do not have the original combofix txt file or the quarantine log. The combofix exe has also been deleted. Does it look that I may have to backup whatever file i have left, then do a system recovery? I am unble to do a system restore either. Starting to worry, we use this for our home business PC.

Thanks,
Chris
