I have the Scour redirect virus/trojan and I'm having problems when using Combofix on my new Win7 Dell laptop. After reading the available material, heeding all warnings and following all instructions to the letter I downloaded, installed and ran Combofix. After the reboot and watching the log file post, I noticed it quarantined a ton of known good apps, etc..I then noticed these same important/critical apps are no longer functioning, such as IE, Outlook, etc..forcing me to go back to a known good recovery point...where I still have this nasty little bug. I'm happy to run it again and post the logs/quarantine files but I'm willing to bet one of you brilliant folks have seen this issue before and may have a quick fix. Is there some other dependent program that is causing Combofix to behave this way? Is it a setting/switch within Combofix prior to running that needs to bet set? Do I have some really nasty version of Scour that this won't cure? Should I give up, kick the cat, grab an adult beverage and re-image? Kidding on the cat.
