Any reports coming in that the newest version of Combofix has issues?
When you run it, it is stopping after the Autoscan "completed Stage_50"

with following error:
' "C:\WINDOW\system32\" ' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file.

The command/batch window remains open..... left it running overnite to make sure wasn't doing something
additional. And, it had not progressed any further. Had to manually close the window. Of course, no
rebooting , logging, or clock reset, etc.

Have tried on 2 seperate WinXP systems w/SP3 installed and both doing the same thing.

Note: Think sUBs is connected with this program.... I PM'd him this info also.

By any chance did you check your event viewers and see if there was any additional information available there? You mention 'no logging', but I don't know what that means exactly. Logging where? I have not heard of anybody else having issues.

Event viewers for both computers showing no problems.... excepting failing to start roxio udf service on startup. Other then that , nothing indicated here.
What meant by logging.... was usually on system reboot you wait for a combofix log to generate showing what was ran/fixed/etc. I never gets this far; because,
you have to manually exit the program window. If you explore the C:\ drive, the combofix directory is not removed (which it should be on successful file completion). So, I can examine this folder for clues if know what I was looking for.
