I was haveing sound and cd/dvd devices not being detected sporadicly, mostly not being detected. Nothing for these entries in device manager. So I ran combofix twice. The first time i closed all windows and turned of the antivirus but not the firewall. It found some stuff but i lost the log by running combofix again. This time I didnt turnoff the antivirus had some other windows open and resulted in a crash-blackscreen. The first time it ran it deleted about six things one I believe was a rootkit. Now I have multiple cascading c and d drives in my c:\ folder. Can I get the log file from the first run, and can i get rid of the cascading drives. can you tell if i wrecked my computer?

If you downloaded Combofix from this website, it should have made a new restore point before running. Have you tried to revert back to that?

Follow Hamluis in post # 4 as you previously ran Combofix. Having no idea where you downloaded Combofix, I was pointing out that from this site a restore point is created when it's run. If you follow the guide in post 4 this thread will follow you.
