Today I started experiencing annoying stuff on my lap top.  At various times surveys would pop up or special notices once on Amazon.com

 

Anyway I downloaded combofix (after first running the bleeping computer program, I forget the name, to check for malware etc.

 

So after I ran combo fix it said it was moving one file then it needed to restart computer so I said okay

 

When it starts up its goes bad when I get to the desktop area there is like an application box that is flashing really fast off and on and I have no control over the system

 

I restarted again to the same thing but I was able to see the file name of the flashing box thing and it was combofix

 

So now what do I do?   I have no control over the computer when I start it up that file shows up and flashes very rapidly

 

What to do????

 

Is there a way during boot-up to invoke the restore to early time?

Hello JayJax

 

We would be glad to help you on this issue here. If we can get some information about the PC. If you can tell us the make and model of the PC and what operating system the PC has. That way we can help you get the Safe Mode with Networking option so that the CF can complete or be removed. On a lot of systems like HP you can tap on F8 at the boot of the PC and it will give you the advanced boot options and then you can use the down arrow and select Safe Mode with Networking. Then you can run tools as needed. I do not want to recommend and software until we can learn more about the PC to see what can be affected by the running of repair software.

JayJax, CF is not infected.

If you ran into an issue after running CF, you should post a new topic in this forum and someone can help you:
