While running combofix, windows vista x64 popped an error saying that Pev.cfxxe had stopped responding and that it was searching for a solution. Then the window changed and only gave me the option to close the program. I waited 30 mins before I finally did close the program and then combofix generated the log file.

I think that some of my directory permissions did not get changed back because I just tried to install a program update by using the "Run" button in Internet explorer rather than the "save" button when I clicked on the download link and I reveived a permission denied. The exact error is: Unable to execute file in the temporary directory. Setup aborted. Error 5: Access is denied.

I have never had this error before running Combofix, I am not blaming the program. I know that sometimes "stuff" just happens. Does Combofix change directory permissions, and if so, can I re-run it and get them back to normal, could I run system restore to revert back to the restore point that combofix made, or do I need to do something else?


I have included my combofix and DDS files, just in case that helps.
