After freaking out about my system fix virus, I was able to find a link to your website. However, I was unable to read all of the required things i should know before doing anything as i simply wanted this virus gone. So I ran the malware removal program, and also used the combofix. After reading some posts on here i now see that perhaps i should not have done so. Either way the computer is somewhat functunal and at least now i can access all of my music pictures etc etc. The problem I have is that when I use a search engine like Yahoo or Google, it provides mne a list of links as expected but when I click on said links they take me to bogus websites. Any help would be appreciated, and again I am sorry for posting my combofix log in a place it did not belong. thanks again
