I'm running windows vista, and I recently followed a bad link and ended up with a bunch of malware on my system. First, I ran a scan with Norton antivirus. In the space where it displays the name of the file it is scanning, several virus names such as Trojan.feedel and Spyware.isnake came up. But it didn't recognize any of them as viruses. Then I tried manually searching for them using the computer's search menu, and the processes list in the task manager. But I couldn't find any of them. Finally, I tried downloading malwarebytes and running a scan with that. But still no luck. I think I may need to use combofix.

I have already responded in your other thread here. Please do not start new threads or duplicate topics as this causes confusion and makes it more difficult to get the help you need to resolve your issues. Further, it necessitates staff spending time with housecleaning to remove or close those duplicate postings...time which could have been provided to others needing assistance.

Thanks for your cooperation.
