What prompted you to download and deploy ComboFix if I may ask ? Though as you have realised not a prudent move on your behalf, this is normally the information I provide for anyone I assist and have opted to use:-

Anyway you will get no recrimination from myself I assure you and lets see if we can remedy this situation and if the need carry out a Malware Removal process OK.
A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix on your own.
This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use. ComboFix Should Not be used unless requested by a trained Anti-Malware helper.

Thank you I really appreciate you taking time to reply to this message.
Fair play and thank you for the courtesy of informing myself.
But I already restored the system to the factory condition using the recovery today
OK fair enough, such information is never wise to trust at all to be quite honest. The actual only reputable/trustworthy source far as I am aware is here and that is merely something to follow when advised to do so by by a trained Anti-Malware helper for example.
I used combofix because I found a video in the internet that guides you in removing malware and they directed me to use it. It wasn't really a smart move and I should have came here first.
OK and your welcome!
yeah sure if you can give me some advices in how to keep my computer clean that will be great. Thank you
