Hi

I couldn't access many sites through Google, and kept getting '404 not found' errors.
I managed to Google this and found that others who had gone through the same thing had downloaded and run Combo Fix and the problem was cured.

I have just done the same, and apparantly, my problem lay with this file which Combo Fix has removed:
c:\programdata\FullRemove.exe

I THINK the laptop is ok apart from I cannot run / open anything (even my browsers) without running as administrator.

Should I do a system restore and go back to where I was? I don't know if I've just made things worse :wacko:

Help please :blush:

Thank you
Tara

Great, it seems that 'FullRemove.exe' is a windows process that can be exploited, so how do I now if I've just removed a good file or a bad one?

I was just about to post that I restarted the laptop for a second time and now I don't have to run as admin anymore :thumbsup:

What do you mean about stay away from those crapwares?

I'm still wondering if I've removed something legitimate too?

Thanks
Tara
