I have no icons on my desktop now and nothing in my start menu. When you click start its all empty etc.. I ran Malwarebytes (this program usually never fails me) It found 12 infections I believe.. I removed them, rebooted, and there was really not much of a change.. I then searched the net and found a thread here on this forum that seemed like basically the same problem I was having.. The thread I am referring to is here - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic423919.html gringo_pr was assisting the member/poster there and gave some instructions including downloading and installing "ComboFix".. I downloaded it and installed it, since im running XP on the system it asked me to also let it install "Recovery Console" so I did and it all installed no problem..
So now I go to run it. It opens up the blue window and says its gonna run and would take 10 minutes or more and has the blinking cursor.. It just sits there on that screen and with the blinking cursor... I tried it a few times now, and just let it sit and run.. The last attempt I had it up for over an hour and nothing happened?? So I dont know if I am doing it wrong, or if there is something wrong with it or what? Not even sure if its what I should be doing, but it seems like its the same problem gringo_pr was helping the other member with, so it appears combofix is indeed what I need to be doing..
Any help AT ALL would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
Bump.. Anyone please?
