I ran ComboFix /u but it didn't give me any options, it just uninstalled ComboFix. I don't know if it did everything you wanted it to.

I ran ComboFix /u but it didn't give me any options, it just uninstalled ComboFix. I don't know if it did everything you wanted it to.

sounds like it worked.

but if you want to be sure:

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.

other than look over the list i posted and download those programs that are of use, there is nothing more you need do.

remember to keep your anti-virus up to date and run a regular full system scan (say weekly).
