Hello folks.........1st time user and aged amateur only so be kind to an old man eh? I downloaded a Combofix malware fixer to the desktop but it will not run. This is to try and kill a rootkit virus identified by my Avast a/v programme as a 'read only so can't delete it' type of message repeatedly about 3 mins after start up.
I have Avast scanned the actual folder with the alleged bug in it and the Avast dialogue result says 'No Threats'.......while an Avast PC scan identifies a virus.
So.....what to do?? For example > can I try and delete bug manually? > why does Combo fix not run? and other tiresome questions.
many thanks anyone/everyone
