My computer tech had me install and run combo fix a few months ago, or more, as I evidentially had been infected with the RootKit.Zero Access. It had disabled my mouse and key board. I was able to plug in other devices through usb ports and I ran the combo fix, and then malware bytes. I was able to regain access to my desktop, but the original mouse and keyboard with the older plugs will no longer work.
Recently I ran combo fix again and after running for a while it said my machine was infected with the RootKit.Zero Access!! It said it had been inserted into my tcp/ip stack, and that it could be hard to remove. It ran for a while longer than said it was going to re-start my machine, which it did. When it restarted I also had to log in again with my user name. I had disable my security essentials anti-virus prior to running combo fix, but after the reboot it came back on with the restart.
I also ran Malware bytes and it found noting.
Today I clicked on the combo fix icon and it said combo fix had expired, asking it i wanted to run it in limited functionality or something to that effect. I clicked yes and it deleted the icon from my desktop and did nothing else.
