I am new to Bleeping Computer. I also have downloaded and installed and run ComboFix, not realizing the potential threat I could have made myself.
Now I have a log and some quaratine folders in the folder qoobox. Now I would like information on who to go too, or
what to do next.

Disregard the previous advice....ComboFix logs are not permitted in this forum. If you are dealing with a malware infection, please be aware that using ComboFix is only one part of the disinfection process. Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, RSIT and GMER should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning an strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.

With that said, please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

:step3: ComboFix logs, where should I post them?

When you have done that, post the required logs to include your ComboFix log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.
