    Re: Got A VIRUS - Try these FIRST before posting

    windows live scanner IS MSE but online version.

    as for combofix

    unless you know you have a false AV prog hanging around
    i'e pop ups random things going on
    i'd not bother to run it
    its only a cleaner.

    now,
    if you need to findout what is running and what it might be doing

    hackthis is the prog to run
    that rips through the registry and reports gobble-de-gooke
    lists everything the registry is doing, that is 'extra' to what is considered 'a std windows OS'

    bit like an MOT, but you'll need to reoprt the finding [log] here
    then we can all go thru it.

    I'd definitely recommend hijackthis and malwarebytes. Usually between the two of them I've got rid of most viruses. sophos also does a free for a few days threat removal tool which is enterprise level. Can be useful after the event!
