    Proceed as follows ;-

    We will begin with ComboFix.exe. Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running the tool:


    Don`t forget Combofix must be saved to your desktop. <--Very important

    Before saving Combofix to your Desktop rename to Gotcha.exe as follows:


    Ensure you have disabledyour Firewall and all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. <---Very important

    Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply for further review.

    Examples of how to disable realtime protection available at the following link :-

    Disable realtime protection

    Note: Do not click combofix's window with your mouse while it's running. That action may cause it to stall.

    • If Combofix detects any Rootkit/Bootkit activity on your system it will give a warning and prompt for a reboot, you must allow it to do so.
    • If Combofix reboot's due to a rootkit, the screen may stay black for several minutes on reboot, this is normal
    • If after running Combofix you receive any type of warning message about registry key's being listed for deletion when trying to open certain items, reboot the system and this will fix the issue (Those items will not be deleted)
