I don't know what Qoobox is but it has magically appeared on my pc. I tried to delete it but got a message saying I had to get the administrator's permission. I am the administrator and nobody else uses this computer so how do I overcome this?
More importantly should I delete qoobox?

Have you ever ran Combofix on that PC in the past?

To answer your question, no I'd never used Combofix and had never heard of it. I didn't know Combofix and Qoobox were connected until I'd Googled it. I found Combofix and sent it to the recycle bin but Qoobox is adamant that it will stay where it is, dammit.

Download and install Combofix again. But DON'T run it.
Once you have done that open RUN from your start button.
Now type ComboFix /uninstall in the run box and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /uninstall, it needs to be there. Qoobox should now be gone. Re-start your PC and enjoy

Yup, i'm very good at Google. The forum I got the answer from says to re-install Combofix, but not to actually run it

I know mate, it was a bit tongue in cheek.

Seens thats the best option, i'm just curious how it came to be there if he aint ran CF before.... :/

Edit: Just re read the OP's second post, properly this time! It all becomes clear.

Well, I tried. Combofix turned into Webroot something or other and there was nowhere to type uninstall. I've managed to uninstall Webroot but Qoobox remains and gives me the same message as before.

I also found something called Yontoo which I didn't know about but I have managed to get rid of that.

What's the next suggestion?

Couldn't get very far with the link you sent so I tried to download ComboFix again from a different source. This time it arrived as ComboFix and not Webroot but I couldn't install it because it isn't compatible with 64bit and Win 7.

Meanwhile Qoobox remains.......
