I have a client that in their infinite wisdome used their server to surf the internet and got the Windows Recovery Malware. I have removed the malware but now I am faced with the issue of all icons are hidden including in the start menu and the administrative tools. On a workstation I would have just run combofix to resolve this issue. This is not an option to my knowledge on server. Can anyone provide some insight in to how combofix is able to recover these files and how to do the process on server 2008r2? This is an Remote Desktop Services server with a very complex config making a wipe and reload not really possible. I have now disabled web browsing on the server, hindsight and all that.

I have the same problem. I wish there was a way of boot from a clean boot such as a usb drive or cd and see a raid array and run combofix from there and clean if you have any solutions let me know
