Hey im just wondering i had my computer taken to a repair shop a while ago. when it was repaired it came with avast antivirus.The problem i had before i took it to the repair shop was that some sort of virus or something got in my computer and when i tried to boot it it said windows cannot boot because this file was infected or deleted. yh so something like that i fixed that with a repair disk which came with the comp and then took it to this repair place because nothing would open and my network card wouldent work. apparently it had a virus and he re did what i had done propperly and removed the virus and now my network card and programs are working. soon after the repair avast kept popping up with a alert and i would click delete to delete the infected file.after that i ran a full scan with avast and it picked up a rootkit which i couldent delete repair or quarentine. so i left it for a while and these avast alerts kept coming up with files which i would delete again and again. i got fed up and read about what rootkits are straight away i realised this could be bad and searched how to remove it.I got tdssskiller and scanned with it and it picked up 4 rootkits which i have no idea where they came from. i clicked continue and i think it removed them im not sure. after that i downloaded malwayre bytes and full scanned and it picked up 2 adwares which i quarentined. now my computer seems to be fine and no avast alerts are coming up and when i fulls can it doesnt detect and rootkits anymore. Does this mean my computer is ok now? i have Combofix on my computer and on a USB incase anything goes wrong and im wondering if i should use it incase there are any remaining viruses of infected files on my computer. should i do that? Im not sure if im alright or not please help.
