Hi Doc755,

Sorry about that, there are apparently still a few glitches with Combofix uninstalling, so let's just use OTL to do the cleanup.
It should remove the combofix icons that are on your desktop, and if not you can just manually delete whichever one remains.

Please re-run OTL one more time and click on the CleanUp button. This will remove all of the tools we have used, including OTL itself

Don't forget to read over the rest of my cleanup post, I don't want to see you back in the malware forum any time soon :cool:

OTL only uninstalled itself and one of the ComboFix's. All the other programs/installers are on the desktop. As for the rest of the post, the Automatic updates are on, JAVA and Adobe are updated and I have my Norton monitoring my computer. Thank you

It's ok to manually delete the last Combofix icon on your desktop, and any of the installers we used.

Does that mean just delete it? I don't see it listed in Programs. Thank you

Yes, that's correct, just highlight and delete them.
