Hello defyet.

First, a warning for both you and others who may read this thread.

ComboFix (CF for short) is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for personal, unsupervised use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. When CF is run without trained assistance, it can no longer be considered a "safe" tool. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

You may find this topic to be informative - ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here


Now. . . in regards to your issue.

The problem should resolve itself if you reboot the computer again


If I am helping you, it has been 48 hours since your last post, and I have yet to reply to your topic, please send me a PM

hello, I am asked to post. I am here from the Malwarebytes forum reading instructions on programs I am asked to download. I am having the same issue. Thanks for that answer. I will await the person in Malwarebytes forum to direct me first before I reboot.
