Our IT group has been troubleshooting this issue for over 6 weeks now. We have numerous PCs on our network that can take up to 1 hour "applying computer settings" and/or randomly lock-up for 10-15 minutes at a time. We have tried "EVERYTHING" and I mean "EVERYTHING" prior to stumbling accross Combofix. After combofix was ran on ~8 systems, it reduced the boot time to under 1 minute. We are running McAfee Enterprise 8.7i with latest DATs but that fails to detect and/or correct anything.
We need to determine if this is in-fact malware/virus and try to pinpoint what exactly was causing this. Please advise.
