Hi.  I have Combofix on my pc, which has malware traces in it for
detection.  Anyone wanna give me some advice?  I have a nasty malware
on my machine which 15 other antivirus programs has not detected.
It's causing my internet connection to crap out, and then i have to
right click the XP taskbar on the computer monitor with the red X, and
reinitialize my connection.  Other malware scanners pick up the virus
traces in Combofix.  Should i delete combofix, just to bypass dealing
with false positives?

Sure, I suggest posting exactly what was found (malware name), where it
was found (full path and file name), and what program found and labelled
it as such.

How do you know it is malware and not something else?

Sure, simplification is usually helpful.

I forgot to ask what kind of internet connection it is.
