My mom's computer which runs windows vista was infected by something that malwarebytes couldn't get rid of so I stupidly ran combofix without any guidance (despite the many warnings not to do so). It appears that combofix probably got rid of the trojan/rootkit (an infected copy of afd.sys) but now everytime the computer starts up in normal mode it gives a BSOD about IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Looking at the dump file in BlueScreenView shows ntkrnlpa.exe and raspptp.sys to be the culprits. I am able to run windows in safe mode. I'm not sure how to proceed because I only have one system restore point which doesn't fix anything. Thanks for any help.

Never mind, I fixed the problem by replacing afd.sys with the original afd.sys that came with Windows Vista.
