This will uninstall ComboFix and delete ComboFix's quarantine folder. It will also implement some cleanup procedures, remove old System Restore Points which contain previous infections, and create a fresh, clean System Restore Point.
Please re-enable your antivirus program and any other antispyware programs disabled earlier if you haven't already.
You can safely delete any tools downloaded or any logs, files, and any shortcuts on your desktop that were created during this fix.
Empty your Recycle Bin if it does not do so automatically.
Please delete the following folder
Now that you appear to be free from malware lets help you stay that way!
It is vital that you keep your system up to date
- Please enable Automatic Updates to keep your system up to date.
- Windows Updates
- Win XP: Start --> Control Panel and double- click on Automatic Updates.
- Vista / 7: Start --> Control Panel --> System and Security --> Windows Updates
- Software Updates
Your installed Software also can have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
To keep your installed Software up to date I recommend File Hippo.
Anti Virus Software
Make sure to have one Anti Virus programme installed and update it on a regular basis. It is useless with out of date definitions.
- Malwarebytes Anti Malware
The freeware Version is an on demand scanner which will check your system for malware. Update it once a week and run a Quick Scan. You can also buy a licence which offers more features.
WinPatrol takes snapshot of your critical system resources and alerts you to any changes that may occur without your knowledge.
- Web of Trust ( WOT )
This software helps you to stay away from sites that have malicious purposes.
This software helps prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware
- MVPS Hosts file
This Hosts File will restrict known ad sites from serving you unsolicited advertisements.
Use an alternate browser
Other browsers tend to be more secure than IE as they do not make use of active x objects. Active x objects can be used by spyware as an infection point on your computer.
Clean out your temp files on a regular basis -I recommend TFC ( Temp File Cleaner ).
Thinking while surfing
There is no software which will protect your system from yourself.
I have included some security related articles that I advise you read through in your own time. These articles will give you tips and advice on preventing infection, and how to stay safe whilst browsing the internet.
If you have any questions kindly ask.
