I have an ACER 5920 that originally ran Vista SP2 but has recently been upgraded by someone else to Win 10 Fall update via Win 7. When it ran Vista it had a malware/virus problem and Combofix was used to help sort the problem. Combofix created a folder in the C: drive that appears to replicate most of the contents of the computer.
In Win 10 it shows in explorer as a similar icon to the "This PC" icon, see attached screen shot. Several of the subfolders under "Combofix" are duplicated in the left-hand pane as can be seen in the screenshot. I renamed the "Combofix" folder to "GWAP Combofix" see what, if anything, happened.
I am in the process of removing junk left over after the upgrade to Win 10 and I would like to remove the "GWAP Combofix" folder but I'm concerned that if I simply delete it that I will delete more than I bargained for. If I delete a file from the "GWAP Combofix" folder it deletes it from the PC.
I understand that Combofix is not meant for Win 10 and I am concerned that the Combofix/ Uninstall solutions (by Quietman) I've found on this forum will cause damage.
Can someone help with this issue?
