Hello!

I've been a fan of this site, and using combofix to nail nasties.. My only problem, is that i am trying a 64bit os (windows vista) and it seems that it's not supported..

While I'm sure there are plans to support it in the future, i was hoping on a blarg on just how long in the future..

Thanks again

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Discussion pertaining to how Combofx works, what it can or cannot do, future plans, etc is not available to the public in order to safeguard and protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers. As such, the developer does not want his tool discussed outside of private forums.

You have replied to a thread which is over two years old.

Due to the architecture in 64-bit Windows and the fact that 64-bit drivers need to be digitally signed, rootkits are not seen as often on 64-bit machines so they are less prone to that type of infection. As such, the tool's creator has said it is very unlikely that there will be a 64-bit version of ComboFix since that OS is more secure than a 32-bit system.

sUBs is a diligent researcher as well as a developer and very much aware of TLD3/TDL4.

Sorry to disappoint... I am a Win 7 64-bit user and am definitely infected with the re-direct problem. I have and am trying every thing I can find to solve this to no avail so far. I hope the law enforcement folks catch up to the malware creators soon and hoist them by the short hairs!
