I used Combofix twice (once without downloading Microsoft Recovery Console beccause viruses/spyware had shut down my internet connection; the second time I used Combofix, enough viruses/spyware had been removed from the first run that I could download Microsoft Recovery Console).

But now after having used Combofix, my computer and internet connection run extremely slow, and there appears to be some kind of error message when I'm starting up my computer (although this error message runs so quickly that I don't have time to read it).

Anyone have advice?

Please read this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/273628/combofix-usage-questions-help-look-here/ which discusses 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.
