Hi,
I have used Bleeping Computer advices to others and it has always been useful to deal with most issues. Now, after one week of unsuccess I decided that I should not wait more and ask for world class help. I am basically a data analyst (statistician) and I use computers for surviving.
Best wishes to all, victims and heroes!!

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Welcome to BleepingComputer. In response to your comment waiting for Combofix for x64, you may wish to take a look here: ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

Which includes the following quote:

Due to the architecture in 64-bit Windows and the fact that 64-bit drivers need to be digitally signed, rootkits are not seen as often in 64-bit machines so they are less prone to that type of infection. As such, it is very unlikely that there will be a 64-bit version of CF since that OS is more secure than a 32-bit system.


Bold is mine.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

Maybe something change in the way rootkits and viruses attack a system, and these changes are now going to impact X64 machines too...
