I had some problems with the combo fix
 
Problem number 1:When i start ComboFix.exe A message appears saying that Comodo Antivirus is opened I've closed and deactivated and the message still appearing i click in ok and the combofix runs.
Problem number 2:When the combofix runs it does not leave the message "Tried to create restauration point" being that already has a restauration point (I think).
Problem number 3:Sometimes when i download ComboFix it is instant removed by something that i doens't know but this is not a big problem.

No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. When issues arise with new malware infections or other security tools conflicting with ComboFix, experts are aware of them and can advise users what should or should not be done while providing assistance. Those attempting to use ComboFix on their own do not have such information and are at risk when running the tool in an unsupervised environment. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

What specific issues are you having that requires using ComboFix?

Compliments of QuietMan7

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Once you have created the new topic, please reply back here with a link to the new topic.

I want to use combofix to remove some malwares because my system is acting in a very strange way principal problems:
-Computer Slowing Down ( two weeks before he not freezing in 3 in 3 hours without me having changed or downloaded anything heavy)
-When my antivirus said that the winlogon was modified and could be a virus my pc turned off like somebody sent this order to prevent I remove something.
-A lot of files with weird names in normal folders like my user folder.
-After spend two hours on the computer and try to delete something appears "Access Denied" when I restart it over back to normal after more than two hours the same thing.

In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create two logs. When you have done that, post your logs in the new topic.

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.
