Hi Folks,
I have been running Windows 7 on a machine I built couple of years ago without any hassles. Since last weekend, I started having CMOS errors and the dreaded BSOD either after windows has started or shortly thereafter. As a result I have been searching for possible soultions on the web and came across Combofix this morning.
I naively thought it would just fix as I suspected a virus or similar, unfortunately no luck. Upon further reading I noticed that I should have perhaps been told to run it and would then know what to do next.

I have a log file from combofix, where to or whom should i post it for analysis and help?

ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

Unlike what many people think, Combofix is not a fix-all program that's just "run and done". It is a highly specialized tool that should only be used under the supervision of an expert. It's not an "everyday use", clean-all program.

If you suspect malware, please post a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs sub-forum, with a description of the issues you are having and the log file. Please note: the Malware Response team are always overwhelmed, and it could take a few days to get your first reply. Just be patient and don't "bump" your topic by replying to it. You will also likely be scolded for running Combofix without supervision.

If you don't suspect malware and just ran Combofix for no good reason, please uninstall it by typing the following into the "Run" box and pressing Enter: combofix /uninstall. In this case, we will try to diagnose your problems here in the Windows 7 sub-forum.
