I did and I mentioned it didn't seem to produce a log because the scan came up clean; if it did but it just didn't pop up, where would I find it.

I just wanted to know if it came up clean. Were you able to get your Windows updates?

Prtty good. SOrry to waste your time when it wasn't malware. I think SAS was just being a pissy resource hog on my computer.

SAS is really only good for cleaning out tracking cookies.

Not a problem.I learn something from every poster that I help.
Let's do some cleanup and we'll be done.


* Click START then RUN - Vista users press the Windows Key and the R keys together for the Run box.
* Now type Combofix /uninstall in the runbox
* Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /Uninstall
* Then hit Enter

* The above procedure will:
* Delete the following:
* ComboFix and its associated files and folders.
* Reset the clock settings.
* Hide file extensions, if required.
* Hide System/Hidden files, if required.
* Set a new, clean Restore Point.
********************************
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)
