Hi,

Happy new year, all.

My name is Vin, and I joined this forum after experiencing some serious malware infestation on my PC running XP. While all other malware removeds have failed to detect and clean up the infection that seems to start internet explorer process in the background, and run whatever it wants to run, I want to see if I can use Combofix to solve that problem.

Thanks, and it's great to be here,
Vin

If you need assistance with a malware infection that requires using ComboFix, please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help".
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 7 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.
  • When you have done that, post your log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.
Important Note: Using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning an strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.
