I just recently had some malware on a computer that I'm working on and it seems like the only thing left is a service named svcboot_mpvnf. When I allow that service to be started and log in, it comes with a message box saying an application has failed to start because it can't find proxy.dll and it wants me to reinstall the application. Any ideas? I've tried running Combofix, and it starts running, but never opens up to the blue screen where it tells you all the scanning it does.
Edit: Moved topic from Windows XP to the more appropriate forum, since ComboFix has been run on this machine. ~ Animal
