We are having a virus outbreak at work. I've identified three computers that are infected. Malware Bytes has found the infections, but doesn't seem to be able to remove them.
So then I heard about Combofix.
Before running combofix on the infected computers, I went and ran it on my own workstation, as a test to see what it does, and how it works.
It ran for about 15 minutes, then rebooted my computer.
After reboot, I have no network. My LAN adapter does not acquire the correct DHCP address, verified with ipconfig. ipconfig -renew fails. There are many network related services that fail to start. Right-clicking on the LAN adapter in the control panel causes Windows Explorer to crash.
I've rebooted several times. I've manually tried to start the network services in services.msc, but they all fail. I'm locked out of the LAN adapter in the control panel.
Any ideas before I end up wiping my entire workstation and reinstalling Windows? Needless to say, I won't be recommending Combofix to anyone in the future.
