combofix

By sunshine123456 ·
I downloaded combofix, and it put a worm on my computer. It took forever to delete this program which also affected the sound. I enjoy the helpful information that Tech Republic offers, but now am very careful in what I download.

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

Firstly where did you download Combofix from? If it really infected the system it didn't come from it's maker so what it infected your system with is anyones guess.

Maybe hit it with a Rescue Disc like one listed here?
