I ran Combofix on my Win XP-Home Edition with SP3 and I believe it fixed many of the problems but I don't understand the results in the log it created when it was done. I could use someone's expertise and suggestions about what else I might need to do to rectify my system's problems. (Slow booting, slow or no loading of programs, programs not loading but being present in the process list of Task Manager and Process Explorer) Combofix deleted a large list of files but there are sections of the log I can't interpret.
Thanks,
CDEDC

Please note the message text in blue at the top of this forum.

IMPORTANT!: No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. When issues arise due to complex malware infections, possible false detections, problems running ComboFix or with other security tools causing conflicts, experts are usually aware of them and can advise what should or should not be done while providing individual assistance. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment.

With that said, please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

:step2: ComboFix logs, where should I post them?


Then follow the instructions provided by Budapest as ComboFix logs are not permitted outside the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logsl forum.
