Thank You!
« on: December 30, 2010, 04:17:19 PM »
Hello! I'm just a general computer user with VERY limited computer skills but can usually fix something with a little research online. A few days ago I was infected with the win32:dropper-epi[drp] virus and simply could not shake it with my avast or my malewarebytes programs. I did multiple searches and tried different spyware programs to alleviate myself of this deep rooted virus. FINALLY yesterday I came across this forum and essexboy suggested the combofix program to someone with a similar problem. I ran the program and things immediately seemed to be better. An avast scan after that picked up 7 more infections but I was able to quarantine them whereas the other infections before were not able to be. Another scan after that came up clean so I'm crossing my fingers and thankful for the knowledge of places like this. I'll keep my eyes open for any anything odd and continue to run some scans just for good measure.
Sorry so long but just wanted to extend a sincere THANK YOU for this forum. Happy Holidays!
