ComboFix is like HijackThis ; its Logs should be analyzed ONLY by those who have been trained by
Malware-fighting Experts . There are several Malware-fighting "schools" IF you may be interested in
learning more I would be willing to recommend !? The ONLY one on this Forum who is knowledgeable
on analyzing ComboFix Logs would be "TeMerc" .

I saw something a couple of months ago about either ComboFix or SmitfraudFix being "compromised"
but the situation was fixed . The "School" I recommend to become knowledgeable about fighting
malware is "Malware Removal University", which is found at

I downloaded ComboFix and then did a scan with Internet connection off. Within 10 minutes the SCRIT malware was completely removed. High praises to a brilliant program. My system is now working completely normally.

Now, to all of you who have been looking at this thread for info. on ComboFix
There is one more piece of information that is very important.
First of all ComboFix should not be used by just anyone.
It is a very powerful piece of software and could, if not used properly,
erase important files on your system.
Second if you do use ComboFix successfully then there is one more
step that has to be taken in order to finish the procedure.
ComboFix has to be completely removed from your PC.
Go to Start*
Click on Run*
Type ComboFix /u (Note: This command is case sensitive*.) http://i149.photobuc.../CF_Cleanup.png
As you can see there is a space between the "x and the /
MAKE SURE you do this exactly the way I have writen it.
After removing ComboFix from your PC PLZ reboot.
