I recently had a virus and it was recommended I use Malwarebytes, then Combofix to get rid of it. I also was advised to setup a system restore point (which I didn't realize I didn't have) Yikes! When I try I get an error stating "specified object not found (0x80042308). Any suggestions to solve this problem would be great!
Thanks!

First troubleshooting step is checkdisk. To check the hard drive right-click on a command prompt icon and open as administrator. In the command prompt window type:chkdsk /r (then press ENTER). You'll be told the disk is in use and asked if you want to run checkdisk on the next boot. Say yes, exit the command prompt window, and reboot.

That's not what I asked you to do. Please follow the instructions in my first post - open a command prompt as admin.
