Found your site when I was having some trouble with my PC and some members of another forum I'm part of suggested I run combofix. A quick rundown of what happened:
I was running an AV that hadn't been updated in about a month. I made the mistake of running Safari for XP and all of a sudden I had the first random pop-up I've ever seen on this PC. Soon after, my audio went out completely. I ended up restarting the computer to see if that would fix things, but it wouldn't boot past "Verifying DMI Pool Data". I ended up using AVG's bootable rescue disc to do a scan for malware and it cleared up enough to get my computer to boot back into Windows. Once I was back in XP, I ran combofix and things seem to be ok.
I know it says not to run combofix unless I'm specifically told to, so I guess I kind of skipped that step. Though, I was told to do it by some guys on another forum that clearly knew more than I did about how to fix my computer. Now I'm wondering, should I post my log in here? Or not? I don't know what the protocol is.
Either way, glad to be here and thanks in advance for the help!
