Root kit revival help – Windows 7

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -


I am running Windows 7 ultimate x86 on my system.

Accidently I set up a virus.

Then I used combo to fix it but it shows me error 80096001.

I study somewhere that if the normal windows update repairs don’t work, then you have to create a new administrator Id and perform something from there; however I can’t discover the site another time to get out exactly what I have to do.

Always I turn off the system restore; as a result I can’t make use of that.

Mention that, I have never used any antivirus till now.


Error: error 80096001


ComboFix – ZeroAccess

You are infected with Rootkit.ZeroAccess! It has inserted itself

into the

tcp/ip stack. This is a particularly difficult infection.

If for any reason that you're unable to connect to the internet


running ComboFix, reboot once and see if that fixes it.

If it's not fixed, run ComboFix one more time.


Please help me to solve it. Thanks.

Dear Alisonnlopez,

                                   You just need to uninstall the Combo Fix from your pc and your pc will be fine, and error 80096001 will be fixed also.

I am going to write you the steps to uninstall this crap.

Go to Start > Run
Type in box or just Copy/Paste

combofix /uninstall

Click ok or press enter

This process will uninstall Combo Fix. Restart your pc hopefully you will get rid of your problem. Also reset the clock settings before restarting your pc.

If the problem still exists then you need to install a fresh copy of windows on your pc.

Hope this will works for you

Best of Luck
