Good Morning
I have XP Home Edition.Google was redirecting and not showing fire fox on opening page just some phony looking Google page.It would redirect me to 302 and click here.The virus would not let me on Microsoft windows update or update Windows Essentials.I worked on this all week and was desperate. I ran TDSS and it worked until Wife used guest account and it came back on all users(3).I found a topic while surfing the web for a fix that had the combofix link. I downloaded it and ran it without knowing all the other stuff I was suppose to do. I guess I got lucky(thank god)and it worked.
My question is does it take care of all users on this computer? I am afraid to open wife's account or kids guest user thinking it might not be removed like the Tdss killer did. I have the log file txt of what it did and will post it if someone would kindly tell me what to do.I am not a computer whiz by any means but know enough to really mess some stuff up.I have XP home but do not have the disk so I couldn't back up files any way.I have not run ANY thing but combo fix.

Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

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

ComboFix logs are not permitted outside the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logsl forum and then only when requested by a Malware Response Team member. However, if you ran ComboFix on your own due to malware infection, please be aware that a ComboFix log is only one part of the disinfection process. Therefore we ask that you please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help". When you have done that, post the required logs to include your ComboFix log in that forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.
