Combofix just restarts my computer and won't run and nothing can find the virus but it's there. It started as a fake antivirus, then when I deleted it it created win 7 antivirus 2011. I think I got rid of that one too, but now everytime I click any link it takes me to some random add page instead. I've already did a system restore from days ago and even that didn't work, but it stopped my problem with running .exe's from the win antivirus.

Hello having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.
As you now see Combofix is not to be run like a commmon tool. It's why we post this above the malware forums.
ComboFix is a tool that should only be run under the supervision of someone who has been trained in its use. Using it on your own can cause problems with your computer.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you posted earlier.

Let me know if that went well.

Thanks! I'm gonna try to post the attach log and see if anyone spots anything odd. I can't post a combofix log though because I still can't run it, it still restarts my comp after I click it and the blue bar loads.

Reference: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic385916.html/page__p__2175471#entry2175471

Now that your log is properly posted (above link), you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
