for past one week, my computer was so slow and had some viruses. one of them was autorun, which infects the disks and so we cannot the open the disk by clicking on it. i was worried as i could not fix these problems even if i have used a lot of antiviruses. then my friend gave me a software. its name is combofix. i just used that programme and all the issues were settled. you can also try it if you have any issues in your system.

Well, I'm glad combofix helped your problem but to all others who might think about using it I give a few words of caution. Since I frequent tech forums and I've never seen Combofix mentioned before, I did a quick search. Several tech forums recommend not using it unless it is under the supervision of an expert. It is supposed to be used as a tool to help diagnose a malware problem, not necessarily as the quick fix solution to it. This link has good advice on where to start if you think you may be infected: http://temerc.com/nfctdnwht.html And, although I've never had to personally use it myself, there is a highly recommended software called HiJackThis - also a tool, mind you, to help diagnose a problem. http://www.download.com/Trend-Micro-HijackThis/3000-8022_4-10227353.html

WARNING!!! combo-fix is a very powerful program. there's a warning when you first download it telling you that 1 out of 100 computers have been permanetely disabled and it should only be used with a pro walking you through it. that said it does get rid of nasty bugs when all else fails, and i have used it a couple of times with no problems.....but....it's kind of like playing "Russian Roulette"

ya, there is a warning from the software. but i have never come across such a situation. but some people say that there is some root kit issue with this software. whatever it is. but i use this software where all other antiviruses fail.

yup, this software is freely downloadable from internet. i think you will get it from www.bleepingcomputer.com. it is a simple program and when it is expired, you need to download a newer version. please share your comments after running the software.
