Do I need to do combofix if my problem seems to be already fixed???  TDSS Killer found a Rootkit Harbinger but I restarted in order to finish cure before I hit report  :-[

But the avast alerts and adware are all completely gone now!

Do I need to run this,
Mac

Somehow I missed the one post that stated you had to reboot... Which means the problem is cured as it was an MBR like I thought

Scrub Combofix, it is not required but could you attach the initial log that TDSSKiller generated please it will be at C:\TDSSKiller date time

OK...I found it!  The computer is running faster than normal and no popups or alerts from Avast!

Thanks so much,
Mac

OK that looks good, Avast may pick up on the TDSS quarantine folder so I would recommend that you delete that now

Then run the system as normal and if all is well tomorrow I will tidy up :)

I must admit I was a tad confused when I saw the TDSS log and saw it was clean.  I must remember to read prior posts :)
