Hello,

I've uninstalled ComboFix but the whole procedure didn't take too long, it was really quick, so I was wondering if that should be the case.

Also, I see that there are two text files in C:\ called ComboFix.txt and VundoFix.txt , shouldn't those have been removed as well?

If not, then all I have to say if thank you very very much for everything!! I wouldn't be able to get rid of the viruses if it weren't for you!!! :) :)

Take care,
Loizos

yes, it does not take long at all.

you can delete those manually, they are not normally deleted during the clearout process.....they are harmless text files.


if you want to be sure that the restore points are clear of infection then you can reset your system restore by:

To reset your restore points, please note that you will need to log into your computer with an account which has full administrator access. You will know if the account has administrator access because you will be able to see the System Restore tab. If the tab is missing, you are logged in under a limited account.

Instructions with screenshots to help is http://www.f-secure..../sfc_dis1.shtml

(Windows XP)
1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.
