Hello slypspeed,

Combofix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Further, discussion pertaining to how Combofx works, what it can or cannot do, what the log means, any 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.

What malware issues are you having?

I'm not having problems myself. I use combofix on other people's machines to help clean them up. I am a certified technician. I simply just didn't know what the "Find3M" portion of the log was supposed to mean.

While we appreciate members who are willing to assist others, we don't want them using tools that, without proper guidance, could result in a computer that is no longer operable.

As we have already stated ComboFix is a private tool intended to be used under the supervision of a trained expert in malware removal and discussion about it is not permitted in public forums.
