ComboFix will run from any location that has a valid file path including a flash drive and CD. For the majority of users, it's easier if ComboFix is located on Desktop as that makes it easier for expert helpers to provide instructions. Saving it to and using from the DESKTOP is for ease in drag and drop.

ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here topic.

At this time ComboFix can only run on the following Windows versions:
Windows XP (32-bit only)
Windows Vista (32-bit/64-bit)
Windows 7 (32-bit/64-bit)
Windows 8 (32-bit/64-bit)

Windows 10, Windows 8.1 and Windows 2000 are NOT supported by ComboFix.
If you attempt to use ComboFix on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 2000 it should provide a message alert and exit. These are generic messages and intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on an unsupported Windows version.

Hi, @jadesick:

 

Is this the same computer?

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/635476/my-pc-is-working-in-a-very-weird-way/

 

If so, I suggest staying with your helper until you are given the "all clear".

Please be patient, as many folks are still enjoying some of the long holiday weekend and your helper may also be in a different time zone.

 

Cheers,

 

MM

After posting a log(s) for assistance and receiving help, 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 their 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 information or any 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.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Good luck.
