Should have asked BEFORE you ran combofix.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix

Second paragraph:

"Due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not
attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix
without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you
do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your
computer."

Put your installation disc into the drive and...

(copied from KB929833)

Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All
Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then
click Run as administrator.

Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow

The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces
incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

===

Don't know if it will help or not. If it won't, then you might have
to run a REPAIR of your system.

I don't know for sure, but I have heard that SFC may retrograde
your patch level by replacing older versions from cab files if it
hasn't properly tracked your updates.

You may want to do updates again just to be sure.
