+1 for Vulcain and Quietman7! A local place once fixed my Windows 7 with ComboFix, well, it fixed the Windows alright, the USB ports worked again, the ethernet card/internet connectivity worked again. However, many of my monitoring and security programs bit the dust in their former 100% operations because of ComboFix, and not even uninstall/reinstall fixed those operations. Fortunately, I had a previous OS backup full image on each of my dedicated usb ext HDs, I restored, and was back in business -- I immediately hunted down the usb ports settings, both ethernet & wireless settings, made adjustments to Windows OS, heading off a re-occurence of what led me to bring my laptop to a local fixit shop in the first place.
