Need help with an extremely anoying problem!!!

Post by Elmo253 on Fri Dec 04, 2009 6:04 am

I installed Explorer 8 on my computer. Ever since then, I have been recieving security alerts saying that I have malware, worms, trojans, etc. When i clicked the enable protection button, an install wizard for Antimalware popped up. I let it install (even though I already have McAffee installed) and when it was finished it said that I had to buy the upgrade to get rid of the malware. when I rejected this, porn icons apeared on my desktop. I have tried everyhing I can think of to fix this problem. Can you help me because this is starting to really bug me.

Rename ComboFix.exe to commy.exe before you save it to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
  • Click Start>Run then copy paste the following command into the Run box & click OK "%userprofile%\desktop\commy.exe" /stepdel
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console


Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
