G'day,

A brief explanation on this topic...

After downloading 'Cheat Engine' from the net (of which AVG flagged as a virus, but what advised this was normal), my desktop started running very slowly.
Clicking on shortcuts and icons would cause freezing and my pc would become unresponsive.

From here, I carried out a system restore (I was able to use my 'guest' user account to do this which seemed unaffected by these symptoms), but this did not fix.

After reading thread: http://www.geekstogo...oolrootkit/...I downloaded Combo.fix and let it run (trying to use the user guide you guys made).

Yes I know, I should have asked for assistance first, but from the success in the above mentioned thread, i was 'feeling lucky'.

Alas, this was not the case, and after Combo.fix finished its scan and made a report, explorer.exe was still at 100% CPU usage and still causing lag.

It's a bit late, but I'd like some help on these one please?

Please see attached text file for your analysis.


Since running combo.fix, my pc has NOT been rebooted or anything.

It has been kept running.

I'm happy to jump through the hoops, follow yours steps, and get as much help as I can from you on this one.



Awaiting your reply.



Cheers.
