I have attached a combofix.txt log from a few days ago from a XP Home PC.
I work as a level 1-2 technician for a local computer helpdesk/repair company. I have used combofix 1000s of times, but last week, I was completely speechless as I watched combofix delete...c:\windows\system, system32, .dll's, and other system files. I have heard horror stories that Combofix can completely devastate a computer, but seeing it do it right in front of your eyes on-site was horrifying.
Setting: A customer called in to schedule a virus removal on site. I went on-site and did my normal routine. Safemode > Malwarebytes > (rename avg)> reboot > normal boot > combofix. MBAM found and removed 3 trojans and some adware which included the infection that I was sent out there for. But to be safe, I always run combofix. To my amazement, combofix started deleting... well check the log. I was able to reboot fine afterwards, but that's the only normal thing that happened. Drivers were missing, programs failed, errors everywhere.
Is there any input on this log? Maybe some explanation as to what happened here?Edit: Moved topic from XP to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal
