I have used it, since XP.  It worked with Windows 8.  I am not running in compatibility mode

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Hi,

Please don't run ComboFix on your own, it can cause serious harm to your system if employed falsely.

 

Regarding your question: ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet. You can't get it to run.

 

regards

myrti

Did you not read the answer to that question provided by myrti directly above your post?

sUBs has advised that he is holding off releasing any working version of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure they work safely on that OS.

If you're interested in learning about malware removal and how to use specialized fix tools like DDS, RSIT, OTL, ComboFix, GMER, etc is something you are interested in, please read BleepingComputer's Malware Removal Training Program.

The above link explains how to apply and what is required. If there are no slots available, you will have to keep checking back at a later time. We are swamped with such requests and there are not enough instructors able to provide teaching so that limits the number of trainees we can accept.

Due to the self-paced structure of training and limited number of instructors here at BC, it is impossible to say with any accuracy when slots will open. New slots are opened up as our existing trainees complete the lower levels of study and move up toward more advanced levels. This is to prevent our volunteer staff being overwhelmed by an influx of new trainees. There is no notification system in place for when slots open so you need to keeping checking back if BC Study Hall is the school you prefer to enroll in. The logistics and management of such a notification system and the fact we have a worldwide membership negate the potential effectiveness and fairness one would expect from it.

If you don't want to wait for an opening here at BleepingComputer, please be aware that training in malware removal is conducted at various other online Unite Schools to include:
