I ran Combofix trying to regain control of my old Dell XPS Gen 5.
The only problem is that to took all of my programs and dumped then into a quarantined folder with a .vir extension.
I tried to fix it with advice on another forum and they said you have to convert them all back manually.
Is that really true?
Why won't there be a batch converter to restore them to what they were before Combo fix problem occurred?
I still think it's infected, but at this point I'd rather get all my files back first.
The infection seems to reside in the svchost process somewhere... as it sucks up resources.
I've taken it off the net till I can get it straightened out.

Any help would be much appreciated.
