Download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.

  • Make sure that these ones are checked:
    • Remove disinfection tools
    • Purge system restore
    • Reset system settings
  • Push Run and wait until the tool completes his work.
  • All tools we used should be gone. Tool will create an report for you (C:\DelFix.txt)
The tool will also record healthy state of registry and make a backup using ERUNT program in %windir%\ERUNT\DelFix
Tool deletes old system restore points and create a fresh system restore point after cleaning.

  • Right-click on

    Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Accept the disclaimer and agree if prompted to install Recovery Console.
  • Do not take any actions while ComboFix goes through your System - it may cause it to stall!

Include that log in your next reply.

I see no malware in your logs. How's your computer behaving now?

Comodo Firewall or antivirus?

I have Comodo Free Firewall and Avast Free running. Computer seems to be running normal now. Should I delete delfix, combofix,frst64, and estpoeliks?
