After days of getting help from you guys removing koobface (much appreciated) I attempted to uninstall combofix from vista. Nothing I have tried works. I opened up a command screen and typed in the combofix /uninstall

Instead of uninstalling it started combofix. I have to let it run because i don't know what damage will happen if I stop it mid cycle. God only knows what damage I have caused by running it.

How in the heck can I remove it? It shows up on my C drive and is listed on my desktop.

Hi carriepie, Give Revo a look, Revo Uninstaller Freeware.
It's a good little program I use it all the time. You can do
a google search for it or go here.

Have you tried... NOTE Vista entry at bottom.

To uninstall ComboFix, press the WINKEY + R keys on your keyboard or go to Posted Image > Run... and in the Open dialog box, type:
ComboFix /Uninstall
  • Posted Image
  • Press OK.
  • Doing this will:[list]
  • Delete ComboFix's related folders and files.
  • Reset the clock settings.
  • Hide file extensions.
  • Hide System/Hidden files.
  • Clear the System Restore cache to prevent possible reinfection.
  • Create a new Restore point.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

I could break into song. You are my heroes. I do not know Vista at all, and you have helped so much.

Have a great day! I'll be sure to send a donation.
