it is the first directory when you access your flash drive - just put both files in there, plug the drive into the infected computer, start FRST and hit fix.
Tell me if that worked for you

May we keep this thread open. I attempted what you suggested and could not get past the first file. The FIX button would never come up for me.

OK. I think I understand and I believe I have been doing that. here's what happens. I go to the flash drive where FRST and fixlist.txt are each stored. I created a new folder on the Flash Drive called MYDOWNLOADS and put both FRST and fixlist in that folder. That is my way of attempting to get the two files in the same directory together or the same folder. [it must not be working as I had conceived it] Then I click the FRST.exe folder and it appears to be doing something. However at the conclusion it gives me the message that the Fixlist.txt file should be in the same folder/directory as the tool itself. So I continue to get the same message. Your instructions are straightforward. I understand them OK ... at least I think I do. but the message keeps coming up. So it's me that is the problem. I'm doing something wrong.

Combofix should only be run when adviced by a team member!
Important - Save the file to your desktop!

I have been having a problem with combofix. I downloaded the program on a Flash Drive, inserted the Flash Drive in the Vista Desktop that has the virus problems. I can find the program on the Flash Drive in the Desktop. I can click on the program and it appears to be going through the files (ie. 1 of 11, 2 of 11, etc) very fast. Then when it finishes, nothing happens. The little screen that was scanning is no longer present. I open the C:\ drive and look for C:\Combofix.txt and don't find that log file. I've done this process 4 times and still do not see the combofix.txt file.

Well, well ... this is turning out to be more than I can handle. I have rebooted several times and cannot find the combofix.txt file anywhere; even in Safe mode. I know this makes it very hard to assess anything. Any other suggestions?
