Good morning :).

 

Although you state that you want to uninstall ComboFix...you also submitted a CF log, which is only reviewed when malware situations seem to exist.

 

Do you want your log reviewed/checked for malware?   Or do you merely want to uninstall ComboFix?

 

I have routed your topic to the forum where you may receive assistance in removing ComboFix and not to the forum where systems receive assistance in removing malware.  If this is not your intention, please let us know.

 

Louis

The correct way to uninstall ComboFix, all of its related folders, files and logs is to make sure it is still on the Desktop (<-Important!!!) and follow these instructions.

However, if you want your log reviewed...then you should not uninstall ComboFix just yet.

ComboFix logs are not permitted in this forum.

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.

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

Reference:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/549909/combofix/ .

 

Now that you have properly posted a malware log topic, 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the MRT 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 a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Louis
