I am really strugling with this. I am running windows XP sp3 with IE7. When I use google and click on the links I am redirected to all sorts of different sites that have noi relation to the link. Also I have had problems with something changing.exe files so my desktop icons don't work. I have always run with McAfe total protection running, with the firewall included but it did not stop the infection. In fact Mcafe does not even show it up on a full scan. I found it with MSessential security but that program cannot remove it.

Eventually I tried Combofix. It worked once but then I got the same problems after a restart. I have the logfiles.

I could not install recovery console via the download or the cd. When I boot up I get a message "boot.ini invalid" and that also caused the installation of recovery console to fail.

Please can anyone point me in the right direction.

Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ concerning the use of ComboFix.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
