I'm moving your topic to the Am I Infected forum. Those articles you linked to are quite old, especially in the world of malware.

Do you need assistance in removing this infection?

Had slowness on my computer, writing to disk a lot, so I let Combofix run, and it decided to delete my working directory! I am running XP with service pack 3, I use AVG antivirus, which I turned off. I have lost several weeks of work. My directory was under the c: drive. As I do computation it included compiled and executable files, as well as powerpoint and word documents. Combofix homed in on this directory and deleted it! It did not ask for permission. I could not restore it, tried going to the restore point it created but it did not restore the files. Tried using CFDQ-UsrPrf.exe but it says Error: 0x00007766 !! Aborting


This thread can be closed - I found a copy of all my deleted files in something called Qoobox.
