I'm afraid to use this tool even under the supervision of a qualified person. I hope I never have to use Combofix. To me is no difference between the words "Combofix" and " Reinstall".

 

Yes, it is safe to use.

 
this program is great, I don't know how many times it fixed my slow running computer.


Dude you schouldn't just randomly start these programs when your PC is slow. There are alooooot better programs that could easily be read from a new computer user to help speed things up again.

That's interesting - two days ago I downloaded ComboFix and it messed up my computer.  It said I needed to restart and when I did my computer was totally screwed up and I had to do a system restore but I'm still having problems with stuff popping up.  How do I know if its messed up again or if it is something else with my computer please?

That's interesting - do you mean that two days ago your downloaded and ran ComboFix for no reason - just to see what happened to your computer. Or did you make the whole thing up?

JayJax, CF is not infected.

If you ran into an issue after running CF, you should post a new topic in this forum and someone can help you:
