With respect to this post, I've cleared up notebook1 and followed your instructions within this thread.  No issues have been found for the last 5 days ;D ;D ;D

I will clean up notebook2, later today.

DZ!

Yes please.  I think that the combofix non running is going to remain a mystery.  It may just be something specific to that one system

Hi All,

Thanks a lot to all of you that helped with my issues, whether it be publicly or in the shadows.  All 3 notebooks have been working perfectly for the last week.

Also, I followed your instructions on page 4 of this thread.

Thanks so much,

All for now and roll on 2022!

DZ

@ davidz,

We are happy to hear that your machines are working well now.  :D

Here are a few suggestions in addition to the ones given to you by Essexboy to keep you and your machineS safer in the future:

1.   Keep your definitions up to date for both Avast and MBAM. 
2.   Keep all your shields on with Avast.
3.   Update MBAM prior to scanning, then do Quick scans.
4.   Keep your MS Updates current.
5.   Add things to your browsers for safer browsing.  See my and DavidR's Signature as an example.
6.   Use common sense when browsing and do not go to risky sites.
7.   When downloading software, read what you are clicking and do not download adware toolbars, which are commonly opted in; look before you click or do a Custom installs to avoid putting unwanted toolbars on your machine that lead to spyware tracking or adware.
8.   Check to see that your software is up to date with the free Secunia Software Inspector http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal/ since software is changing all the time.  This site gives you the vendor's direct download link making it easy to upgrade your software.  Many of us here scan our machines weekly.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

-> Now that your issue is resolved/fixed, please go back to the first open post in this topic, click the modify button in that Post and change the title/subject, add [Resolved] to the beginning of the title so this thread can be closed.
