Been trying to clean off a computer which had a I-Q Manager/Copright Violation Alert Malware. Ran Malwarebytes in Safe Mode but noticed that even after cleaning, in normal mode IE would not go to Windowsupdate, Microsoft Security Essentials would not update nor would SuperAntispyware standalone scanner. Was able to run Combofix which reported apparent rootkit activity. After rebooting and allowing Combofix to finish was able to run SuperAntispyware as well as Windows update. System is Win XP Pro SP3. Thinking of telling the person who owns the computer the best thing to do is a format C: and reinstall however they may have lost the disks from Dell.
