I used ComboFix at the suggestion of someone on another forums site to remove malware on my computer. In the process it removed a computer game that NEVER CAUSED ANY PROBLEMS. It didn't even say something like "do you wish to delete this? type 'y' for yes or 'n' for no". Instead it just wiped out a game that took me 8 hours to install and upgrade (1 for unzipping the game, 1 for installing it, 1 for unzipping the upgrade patch, 1 for installing the upgrade patch, 1 for unzipping the expansion pack, 1 for installing the expansion pack, 1 for unzipping the upgrade patch for the expansion pack, 1 for installing the upgrade patch for the expansion pack)!!!!!

Now don't get me wrong, it did a GREAT job of removing the malware on my computer. I want to restore ONLY the game, not the malware. Is there a command line switch for running ComboFix in a mode that will ONLY restore the game, and NOT RESTORE ANY MALWARE?
