With success I recently used CombFix to stop a nasty piece of malware so that Malwarebytes could remove it. The problem I'm having is that the command 'ComboFix.exe /u' will not uninstall, instead it restarts the program. Should I just delete the .exe from my desktop or does this need an uninstall process?
