I am a computer repair guy and I have been VERY greatful for combofix... it has recovered a LOT of people's PC's and saved them lots of money in the process.
This computer came to us infected pretty bad but we were able to run MBAM and clean up stuff then run Avira and clean up more stuff (in safe mode)... then able to run both again in the normal user account and clean up more. It all seems to be running fine but I am not comfortable with it because it won't run combofix.
It freezes the entire computer when it goes to "scanning for infected files.... 10 mins...." screen. Cursor still moves but no caps lock response, no clicks respond and I have to hard power down the laptop at this point. This happens in safe mode and normal mode.
This is XP, I have checked for emulation software, which he has none and I have disabled Avira before running combofix.
I know this isn't exactly a "normal" post for help here and if I posted it in the wrong section then I am very sorry either move it or delete it and let me know where I should post it and I'd be glad to fix the problem.
Again, MANY thanks for everything you guys do!
wow this forum is super busy... one day passed and I had to dig to page 7 to find my post.
