Yes. Download ComboFix to your flash drive then copy it to the desktop of the infected PC. If you still can't get online after running ComboFix you will have to copy the log back to the good PC to post it for me.

It will not run. Should I try it from safe mode? The infection has changed the user accounts. Currently, I'm not sure what account I'm logged into, but it's not mine. It's completely blank with only the recycle bin on the page.

I renamed it to "test1" and it's running as we speak. Results will be posted in a few. Thanks.
