Hi Techies,I recently brought my machine to the shop for an overhaul and to see if they could find any infections. A junior tech installed Combofix to aid in this process. When he was done he left it on my C: drive which in itself is not a problem. The problem is that my C: drive is a 200Gb SSD drive, it's now very full. So, I followed all of the uninstall instructions here but couldn't get it to uninstall.I have no idea wherer to go from here but I do need to free up the room on my SSD drive. Any comments or suggestions are greatly appriceated.
Tnx in advance,

Mod edit: moved from Win7 to the Am I Infected forum.

Please let us know where exactly the comobfix.exe file is located. For example is it at: C:\Users\USER\Desktop\combofix.exe

Combofix the program is fairly small. The only thing that would take up much space would be it's quarantine file, and only if it made major changes.
