My PC is now hosed. I don't know what I should do because it seems now after running combofix, it's deleted all my system backups and added IE as def browser and tried to add/del a bunch of registry keys but I denied most via Spybot S&D.
So, I need someone who can walk me through fixing all of this and hopefully get my PC back to normal. I normally run ESET NOD32 AV AND Comodo firewall AND Spybot S&D all at the same time and I didn't get a positive when I ran that rustbfix.exe. Or the GMER which did list a catchme.sys for comodo I think.
Anyway, the original prob was that it would not boot to normal mode and gave the BSOD STOP code of: 0x0000008E 0xC0000005, 0xE0CFB420, 0xF54717DC, 0x00000000
Now, it seems my PC is slowing down and it won't even let me do cntrl-alt-del but maybe it is just safe mode. I don't know. I'm afraid the combofix.exe has added some malicious stuff and I d/l it from a link at this site and ran it through norton AV on yahoo to be sure because the NOD32 won't run in safe mode.
I will post what I can now and if someone can guide me or tell me what to run and what logs to post where, that'd be great.
WinXp pro svc pk 3, nvidia geforce 9600 gt, 4 gig ram, P4 3.something cpu, asus motherboard.
I made sys backups yesterday b4 installing adobe encore and ALL my sys backups are now gone. At least they are not showing up when I go to do a restore and further, the option to do a backup isn't there. But maybe that is safe mode. I don't know.
So, I'm afraid when I turn this off and back on, that malicious stuff that combofix added is going to make my PC even worse and maybe not even be able to get back online. Every time I tell FireFox to be the default browser, I close it and open again and NO, it is still not the default browser.
Any help is appreciated. If you need some kind of info from running some diag, just tell me what and how and I will post back the results.
