My computer has been lagging for about two weeks now. Figured I had a problem so I scanned it with a bunch of AV software (all in safe mode) to include: MSE, Malwarebytes, ClamAV, Hitman Pro, Bitdefender, and Spybot. ClamAV found two trojans and removed them, and I thought all was well with the world. I was wrong. Windows has been crashing and basic programs such as Outlook and Chrome have been sucking up major memory and freezing my system. 

 

Out of desperation, I did some research and read about some awesomely powerful program called Combofix that would magically solve all my problems. So I downloaded it and ran the whole process. Like I said I was desperate. It wasn't until after it was finished, when I read the logfile and the quarantined-items file, that I realized that I was in over my head. I did some more research and found that I in no way should have been messing around with such a program, especially with my lack of IT background.

 

I'm an idiot? You are preaching to the choir.

 

So here I am, a lowly beggar, asking if someone can please let me know if I really messed up, and if I haven't, than how I can get this virus out of my system. Thanks in advance!

 

P.S. I still have both log files, just let me know if I need to attach them.
