Hello , please note the Blue text above this forum. Youo should do nothing without guidance..
Having run it you will need to do this.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the Gmer step and post your ComboFix log.

Let me know if that went well.

If you're unsure how to use a security tool or know what it does, then you should not be using it.

If you ran ComboFix on your own due to malware infection, please be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning an strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary. If you do not have a malware infection, then you should not be running tools like ComboFix just to see what it finds. It was never meant to be used as a general purpose malware scanner like SuperAntispyware or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware which scan individual drives or different folders on a computer for viruses.

Further, ComboFix logs are not permitted outside the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum and then only when requested by a Malware Response Team member so you will need to follow boopme's instructions if you want an expert to review your log.
