I ran ComboFix to remove a rootkit, but I started it from an external drive. It did remove a rootkit and completed all runs within ~1.5hr. Now after 2 earlier reboots, the computer restarted for the final time and it seems to be OK. Should I check for any side effects of running the tool not from the desktop? What are the side effects of not running it from the desktop?
