My computer was recently infected and under recommendation, i used Combofix.
The infection was gone. But my computer got worse after using Combofix.
Many functions and files in my computer are now messed up badly.
I really regretted using Combofix, may i know how do i restore all my quarantine files?
I have uninstalled Combofix, but i still have a copy of Combofix log and the Qoobox Quarantine file.
I will be very grateful if i get my problems fixed.

I suggest you go here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic273628.html
and read number 5.

I used ComboFix on my own and encountered problems. What should I do?

With that said, the BC Staff will try to assist our members if they encounter a problem after using ComboFix on their own and ask for help. We understand that even under the supervision of an expert, something can go wrong to include false positives on critical system files resulting in unbootable machines or other issues. If such a scenario happened with you, here are some basic guidelines to follow:

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and provide a description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of all steps that you have performed on your own.

Please be specific and describe exactly what happened when you ran ComboFix. Include any error messages that you received. If your machine is bootable, providing a How to take and share a screen shot in Windows can be useful in helping to resolve your problem.

After starting your topic, please be patient as it may take time to get an answer.

If the reccomendation to use Combofix came from here then I suggest you ask the person that aided you for help and a link to the topic please.

Then go to here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs
Include a link back to here. Read the notices at the top of the forum page and and put everything in one post so it doesn't look like someone is helping you.

I am closing this topic as it should be continued in the "Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs" forum.
