Hello all!

I used to remove virus from my Pc with Combofix.
I have antivir antivirus on my machine (probably the best with kaspersky, i've tested all except GDATA ;)
The thing is, Combofix.exe is, since yesterday's update (I use combofix on plenty of users's machine) seen as a TROJAN.
Is this normal? Can the creator of combofix contact avira antivir to change this if no pb?
Is the new combofix.exe file infected???

I found the exact same thing - my avast! antivirus identified it at win32:Oliga (trojan horse). I left it runnning and it ended up completing the scan showing no infected files, but avast! crashed... dodgy.

This is another example of why Combofix is to be used under the supervision of a trained professional. There is nothing wrong with the current version of CF, and if you did a little research you would find that all A/V's should be disabled when the tool is run. I would suggest that you use great caution with this tool, as it can do some real damage if used improperly :thumbsup:

That may be but the original topic was referring to Combofix. If you are having problems please start your own topic
