Virus/Malware Found, Used MBAM, Then Weird Behavior

Recommended Posts

I ran TFC and the PC rebooted.

Everything started running somewhat better after ComboFix, but after TDSSKiller removed that last Rootkit, that's when I saw Google Chrome and ITunes running again which to me is a major sign.

Will I have to uninstall ComboFix, turn Defogger off, etc ... at the end of this process?

Yes go to Start ---> Run ----> Type ComboFix /uninstall and press Enter

Run defrogger again and re-enable emulation.

Now that your system is clean you should SET A NEW RESTORE POINT to prevent future reinfection from the old restore point AFTER cleaning your system of any malware infection. Any trojans or spyware you picked up could have been saved in System Restore and are waiting to re-infect you. Since System Restore is a protected directory, your tools can not access it to delete files, trapping viruses inside. Setting a new restore point should be done to prevent any future reinfection from the old restore point and enable your computer to "roll-back" in case there is a future problem.


1. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".

2. Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.

3. Then go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr

4. Click "OK".

5. Click the "More Options" Tab.

6. Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Graphics for doing this are in the following links if you need them.
