Initially, I googled some of the errors and infections and came upon ComboFix as a remedy. After running the program, I learned that (after joining this site) that this was a MAJOR NO-NO and I might have really screwe the poch.

At present, I have an error log and don't know what to do from this point, since I botched the first cardinal rule of the site.

Can/will anyone please provide guidance and assistance.

Thank you

ComboFix related logs are not permitted outside the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum and then only when requested by a Malware Response Team member. However, the Malware Response Team members are all volunteers who contribute to helping members as time permits but currently there is a backup and you may have to wait for assistance. Referrals are made to that forum if we cannot assist you in this forum. If we need to do that I will give you instructions on what to do and where to post your error log.

With that said, what specific issues are you having that requires using ComboFix or assistance with malware removal?
