Trying to multitask I accidentally ran ComboFix (forgetting the warning, obviously:-))

 

I have various service access problems but have access to the Internet and if anything the system is running faster!  I have the use of a network service I was previously having problems with!

 

System is Win 7 Ultimate on a four core lynfield processor and a raid 10 setup running 4  enterprise level disks

 

All current MS important updates where installed with no problems (excluding all optional updates)

 

I run many of the recommended Bleeping Computer security scans on a regular basis.

 

I have the C:\comboFix.txt file as well as the registry backups in the quarantine folder.

 

I have Comodo firewall installed (Ver. 5.12.256249.2599)

 

I run the following security software at least weekly:

Malwarebytes

SuperAntiSpyware

Microsoft Security Essentials

 

I have also run the following security apps in the past few days:

TDSS

AdwCleaner

Rkill

TFC.exe

Mbar.exe (Malwarebytes rootkit beta)

 

I also had TrojanHunter Guard enabled when ComboFix ran.

 

I lost:

all restore points

my personal desktop settings

Microsoft Security Center

Intel RST service

 

There are probably other things that have changed but I surely would appreciate help getting back to were I was.

 

Thank you in advance.

Since you already ran Combofix, its log should be thoroughly reviewed by trained experts in order to ascertain what was detected/removed.

Please follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide For Requesting Help starting at Step 6.
When you have done that, start a new topic and post the required logs to include your ComboFix log in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts. After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one.

After doing this, it would be helpful if you replied back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one. Good luck and be patient.

You're welcome.

Your log(s) is posted here.

Now that your log is posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Response Team member...nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log(s) you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response because the Malware Response Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, please follow Step One and CLICK the link so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Good luck with your log.
