Good! :cheers:
Your system now is clean.
Let's do some cleaning and management.

First,
clear system restore points.
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:
  • Go to Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore
  • Select Create a restore point > Click Next > Put the description as you wish > Click Create.
  • Next, go to Start > Run and type in cleanmgr
  • choose your root drive (normally C:) and click Ok.
  • after it calculates how much space you will save it will open up a new window
  • Select the More options tab at the top of the window
  • Choose the option to clean up system restore and click yes.
  • Go back to the Disk Cleanup tab.
  • Put a checkmark in all - except compress old files (leave this unchecked).
  • Click Ok then click Yes
This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created and clean unneeded files

Next,
Uninstall Combofix
  • Click on Start >> Run...
  • Now type in ComboFix /Uninstall into the and click OK.
  • Note the space between the X and the /Uninstall, it needs to be there.
