Hello,having already run ComboFix (a risky thing to do)... we need to see that log.
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 instead post the ComboFix log you have.

Let me know if that went well.

Logs are usually posted in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hello,having already run ComboFix (a risky thing to doa risky thing to do)...


Hello I've been looking for Combofix, I think for an hour now, and I don't find it... but now that I have seen this comment, I ask myself if I have lost any bad news on Combofix lately. So is it no longer safe to run Combofix?

I would be glad if you gave me an answer...

regards

Thakns for your quick answer,

I think I wont use it anymore.. But to tell you the truth... I have never had any problem with it... The truth is that it's been about a year since I last used it... I have now Avira Antivirus (a great AV indeed) and Spybot.. with that.. my computer is just running fine...

thanks once more...

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
