Hello,
  I have been using combofix and others on here for years, never had a problem. Last night i ran combofix, adwcleaner, and junkware removal tool.. anyway, now when I try to run QuakeLive i get this error:
 
c:\Program Files 86\Quake Live\Launcher.exe
A device attached to the system is not functioning.
 
I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the QL client.. same error.  I already posted this problem in the QL forums, and they didn't know so they suggested I come here.  I searched through their forums and these forums, have not found any posts with the same problem.  If it has already been posted, I apologize and would love a link as I cannot find anything.  Any ideas?

Have you posted a topic reflecting your CF log...in the Malware Removal Logs forum here?

 

That would be my suggestion.

This is one of the reasons why we recommend not to use ComboFix on your own (see here). There are risks involved and we would prefer it if someone (a trained expert) who knows how to resovle any issues that may arise when running the tool, is supervising it's use.

Since you already ran Combofix, its log should be thoroughly reviewed by trained experts in order to ascertain what was detected/removed. A log should have been created and saved to the root directory, usually C:\ComboFix.txt.

Please follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide For Requesting Help starting at Step 6.
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create two logs. (Note: Windows 8.1 Users will not be able run DDS and create a log)
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.
-- ComboFix logs are not permitted in this forum.

After doing this, please reply back in this thread with a link to the new topic so we can closed this one.

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.
