Hi guys. I ran combofix and it quarantined some files from system32 and MBR_Harddisk0. How do I fix this? Do I just leave it alone?

Is there a way to fix the mbr without deleting it?

Good evening. :)

While you can leave the files where they are because the file extension disables them so they are safe, you can simply delete them.

ComboFix may already have dealt with it. I suggest that if you want somebody to take a look at your computer that you follow the instructions here and post accordingly into a new thread and somebody will be along as soon as to help.


For tidiness i'll lock this one.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
