    Hello

    Despite having NOD32, i've got a virus on my Vista PC. I ran HijackThis, removed BHO's and other ones identified by the log analyser.

    The only sign that a virus is still present is when I use internet explorer, the text size is larger despite it being set to "normal". Also, I get blank thumbnails on all files when using window explorer.

    I ran ComboFix (used it in past) and it did its thing and rebooted however the problem was still there. After other things, I went to run it again however it tells me there are rootkits and it must reboot.

    This is where the problem starts as I get the following:

    Code:
     
    Windows Boot Manager
     
    Windows failed to start...
     
    File: \Windows\system32\drivers\Combo-fix.sys
     
    Status: 0xc0000221
    
    I cannot get into windows normally or via safe mode. Only last known good configuration works.

    How can I get rid of this all?

    PS attached log files from the first time I ran combofix which exectuted fine and the latest hijackthis
