Windows 7 Home Premium

You done good, Old SSG!!!

Now, let's run ComboFix on that machine...

Please download ComboFix:

IMPORTANT!!! Save to your Desktop <<<

If using a notebook, make sure it is connected to wall-power (AC power), or a UPS system.

Disable any AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, since they may interfere with ComboFix.

Info on disabling protection programs:
How to disable your security applications - Tech Support Forum
How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs -

To run the program, right-click on ComboFix.exe and select: Run as Administrator
Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
The scan make take a while, since it has some 50+ stages.

When finished, CF produces a report.

Please provide a copy of the C:\ComboFix.txt in your reply.
1. Please do not mouse-click the ComboFix window while it is running. This action may cause it to stall.
2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making IE the default browser.
3. CF disconnects your machine from the Internet. However, the connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Group Policy Editor or Local Security Policy
Will either of these allow me to restrict drive access to a single user only? I've tried to restrict drive access with Group Policy Editor but it applies the restriction globally--even to me the administrator. Could anyone let me know if this is possible and how to do it? Much thanks.
