Hi chadi and welcome to BC!
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.
I think you have seen why we give this warning.
As far as I know, there are no viruses posing as ComboFix updates. If you are having issues with ComboFix, I recommend one of two paths.
1) View this guide: How to use ComboFix
2) Follow this guide
and post a DDS log in the HJT forum
That's about it. If you have any questions, please feel free to PM me. I will be happy to help you in any way I can.
