It seems to be running faster.

Ok, let's do some cleanup.

To uninstall ComboFix


  • Click the Start button. Click Run. For Vista: type in Run in the Start search, and click on Run in the results pane.
  • In the field, type in ComboFix /uninstall




(Note: Make sure there's a space between the word ComboFix and the forward-slash.)


  • Then, press Enter, or click OK.
  • This will uninstall ComboFix, delete its folders and files, hides System files and folders, and resets System Restore.

*******************************************
Click Start> Computer> right click the C Drive and choose Properties> enter
Click Disk Cleanup from there.



Click OK on the Disk Cleanup Screen.
Click Yes on the Confirmation screen.



This runs the Disk Cleanup utility along with other selections if you have chosen any. (if you had a lot System Restore points, you will see a significant change in the free space in C drive)
*******************************************
Access the Start menu. You will need to left-click on the "Start" button, located on the lower left-hand side of the screen; a submenu will open.

Scroll to the right of the submenu and left-click into “Control Panel."

Under the Control Panel, there are several icons; left-click on the “System” icon. A new menu will open. Click on the “System Restore” tab and the System Restore menu will open.

Click on the “Create a Restore Point” button, then click “Next." Enter in any text for a description, then click “Create."
This will give you a new, clean Restore point.
******************************************
Go to Microsoft Windows Update and get all critical updates.
