Hello.

I had some viruses on my PC (Backdoor.Tidserf.I!inf), so a computer technician came over to remove these viruses.
He ran ComboFix, and this created the Qoobox folder on my C drive.
This folder contains a Quarantine folder, and Norton has detected the files in this Quarantine folder as viruses that need to be removed (e.g. Packet.dll.vir, disk.sys.vir)

I just need to understand what I'm supposed to do with the contents of the Quarantine folder.

Your help is much appreciated!!

Thanks.

Remove the ComboFix..
Please download OTCleanIt and save it to desktop.
•Double-click OTCleanIt.exe.
•Click the CleanUp! button.
•Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
•If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
•The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.
