  1. I had a malware that was causing my cpu to run slow. I ran combofix becuz nothing else would delete it.

    Now my cpu restarts itself in normal mode. I keep getting the message that "Host Process for windows has stopped working"

    At times I'm redirected to different sites while in firefox. Explorer is also messed up. HEre's the COmbofix log. I have no clue what it means. ANy help is appreciated.

    Guess you missed this:
    The Combofi log you left is of no use- it's not even the complete log:

    Uninstall ComboFix and all Backups of the files it deleted
    • Click START> then RUN
    • Now type Combofix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the U, it needs to be there.

    If you would like us to check the system for malware, please follow the steps in the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal thread HERE.

    When you have finished, leave the logs for review in your next reply .
    NOTE: Logs must be pasted in the replies. Attached logs will not be reviewed.

    Please do not use any other cleaning programs or scans while I'm helping you, unless I direct you to. Do not use a Registry cleaner or make any changes in the Registry.

    I deleted it from my desktop right after the scan yesterday. Now it say "Windows can't find it"

    Thar' because you deleted it instead of uninstalling it correctly> another problem caused by running a program you should not have. Use the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to remove the 'left over' files.
