My dell laptop, which uses windows vista, was recently infected by the spyware program "antivirus antispyware 2011". I went on a few sites for advice and one had me run Combofix. I ran it and the icon for the antivirus antispyware 2011 is no longer there and I have not had any of the annoying interruptions that the virus/spyware was causing. I do not know if I need to take any further steps. I also don't know what the Combofix log is telling me. Can you give me some advice?

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic. Please be sure to include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.
