Hello everyone , i'm new here and i would thank you for your precious help. I need it badly please !
After reading about Combofix on internet i've tried it on my pc using windows xp as O.S. and i've have
been warned about the presence of a rootkit.
Well following the instructions on the screen , i've rebooted but Combofix could not clean it !
So if possibile i would post the log and awaiting for your response to suggest me the best thing to do
to remove the mightly rootkit or anything else.
The bytes sent are bigger then the received ones ... is it normal ? I'm using F-Secure as internet
security to protect my pc but i do not feel secure at all after the warning .. may it be a false positive ?

Best regards

Hello Monello,

What is the reason you ran ComboFix? What malware symptoms were you experiencing?

I'll need to see some reports from you. Kindly follow the instructions in the pre-posting topic located here ==> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html

Post the contents of the dds.txt, and attach the Attach.txt and gmer results.

You also ran ComboFix numerous times. Navigate to C:\Qoobox and attach the ComboFix5.txt
