Hi folks!

I have a persistent issue when trying to backup my computer using the backup utility in XP.

Over the past few weeks I have deleted 26 viruses from my OS. :thumbsup: The one I just got done doing battle with was the userinit.exe. Evidently a variant of the win32/kryptic.cvx trojan. ESET was unable to clean. But I figured that out....I think!! :flowers: Anyway...ever since this little virus explosion happened a few weeks ago there has been persistent group that ESET finds every time I try to do a complete backup of my system. It's called the MyFunWeb products. MyFunWeb Search. MyFunWeb Toolbar. I want to kill MyFunWeb.

I just downloaded Combofix, but there are warnings all over the place saying that it's a powerful tool that can delete critical parts of my OS if I don't know what the logs mean. And if my screen name is any indication of my experience....then yeah.

What information do you need to help me delete these viruses from my computer? HELP!! ...please. =)

Hello :thumbsup:

You did good :flowers:
It is a smart decision on your part to pay attention to the warning at the top of this page
in blue text regarding the use of ComboFix.

Another option is to use a free program called Revo Uninstaller.
