My System


Hello

Combofix can really screw the computer up if not used properly. Maybe someone in the

security forum can help you with cleaning your system and running combofix if

necessary.



If you think that the system is infected then someone in the security forum may be able to help you.

After completing the steps you will be advised to post a log for one of the experts to examine. Please use the link provided to post the log not back here.

Be patient and it may take some time for someone to assist you as that is a busy forum.
