Sorry to drop in late, but you are still asking questions -
Can I still do everything a laptop is SUPPOSED to do even while Combofix is still installed on my computer?
NO - You can not operate your computer normally with the program still installed.
Please note that ComboFix is NOT a scanning tool and it should be removed as per above.
This is a one time only scan / repair tool for special problems only. It can not be updated and MUST be uninstalled.
3 things to do if it is on your system now .......
1 / Unstall it - ComboFix should be removed per these instructions when you are done with it.
Now, Reboot your computer and make sure the program is no longer there. If it is, please repeat the steps.
2 / This is your Daily / Weekly scanning tool => Update it prior to each time you use it.
* Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free (aka MBAM)
* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* Note - Do not accept the Free Trial version at this time -
* At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform Full Scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.( Unless you know that there are safe programs.)
* When completed, a log will open in Notepad.
Be sure to reboot the computer if required after you have log.
The latest version of the program now scans archive files which were previously not scanned.
This can increase the time required to complete a full scan.
3 / Important - Do you still have any infection problems with this computer ??
If so - Please follow the instructions in THIS PREP GUIDE starting at Step #6.
Then make a NEW TOPIC and post it to => Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs. area along with the 2 DDS Logs that are now on your desktop.
Thank You -
