Hi. :)

As ComboFix is having difficulty uninstalling itself, download and run the ComboFix standalone uninstaller here.

Hi,

I ran the uninstaller and it seemed to work fine except it left the ComboFix NSIS Installer icon on the desktop and after a file search one ComboFix log file came up.

Should I manually delete these two files?

Thank you.

Hi,

I deleted the last two ComboFix files.

Is there anything else I need to do?

Thank you so much for you help.
