Web pages are loading normally. I installed Google Desktop and I think it is slowing startups a little but no big problem. Everything seems OK.

Should I be worried about combofix.exe and SDFix not running?
Also what do you think about Vista OS with regards to security? I realise it is early days yet for this OS but I have had thoughts about moving up to a 64 Bit OS eventually. I would wait at least 4 months until the bugs are worked out of this new OS of course.

Sorry for the delay. I actually haven't installed Vista on any of my computers yet. i have the upgrade purchased but haven't had time to install yet. Everything I have read and seen is that the security is excellent and the biggest improvement, but for how long? It will only be a matter of time until they find ways to circumvent this, unfortunately.Your safe to back up files, I still am curious about combofix. I have never had a problem with someone running it.

Right Click the Desktop and Select New--> Folder--> Name it SysClean
  • Download the Sysclean Package to the folder you made.
  • Next,download the Virus Pattern Files (Official Pattern Release) to your desktop from Here
  • Right Click and Select Extract All to unzip the folder.
  • Now,from the unzipped folder,move lpt$vpn.XXX file to the SysClean folder.
  • Restart in SAFE MODE(Tap F8 when restarting)
  • Open the SysClean Folder and doubleclick sysclean.com
  • Be sure Automatically clean or delete detected files is checked.
  • Click the Scan button to begin,please be patient,it will take a little bit to finish.
  • Once complete,verify the log from the scan (SYSCLEAN.LOG) is in the SysClean folder and restart back to Normal Mode.
  • Copy&Paste those results in the next reply.

Thanks very much for your help. I guess the computer is clean now. I have installed: AVG antivirus and antispyware, SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, Panda online pro antispyware and the other software you had me used. Can these be reduced to a smaller number of software? Any other recommendations?

sorry for the delay again...snowstorm,work :whistling:

Panda online pro antispyware, did you buy this or is it a trial?

AVG as an antivirus, avg antispyware or Superantispyware are both great. One is probably only needed, I like Superantispyware personally

I would add SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

You can delete all the programs we downloaded, make sure that you delete combofix also.

Thanks again,

Yes I did pay for the Panda online pro antispyware for 6 months. Probably unecessary but I was a little nervous when Combofix and SDFix didn't run. I already have SpywareBlaster installed and configured.
We got quite a bit of snow here a few days ago but nothing like what parts of NY state had ( up to 12 feet I believe). After a very warm January we were hit with very frigid Arctic weather in February. Looking forward to Spring now.

Regards,

David
