In the past I have ran combofix successfully with no problems what so ever.
Yesterday I ran combo fix in safe mode due to a virus that deleted my accessories folder on the start up menu. B/c of this I was unable to run a system restore. When I ran combofix in safemode all was well so I rebooted my computer. The virus was gone along with alot of my files. Mainly pictures/videos are what I am concerned of losing. I did 3 different system restores before the virus and before combofix was ran. What this did do was bring that the folders that were deleted, but inside the folders the content was no longer available and only some of the content was there. I would say 1/4? I d/l'ed and ran the qqq and I did nothing from what I could tell. I ran another system restore with no success. Please advise?!?!?!
Thanks in advance

help please any additional info?

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.
