I read several places that combofix was the best program to scrub away the scour.com redirect virus. I followed the instructions to download combofix, close all windows, disable my usual protection, and let combofix do its thing. It went to its blue operation screen to perform 50 stages, restarted computer, back to blue screen to generate log, then produced the log on whitescreen. I still didn't touch it for a couple of hours, but then saved the log as a file. When I tried to open it, I discovered that I couldn't. In fact, I can't so much as open any text document, much less launch an internet browser: ALL operations are reported as illegal and slated for deletion!
What on earth do I do to fix this?
p.s. I can't produce the log for you, as per problem above. I did photograph it with several shots from my phone, though. I am writing from another computer.
