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.
So I would like to know the exact reasoning behind this. (Besides that its to keep the program safe, because I find that complete BS. (If someone REALLY wanted to they would start to reverse engineer it.)
So to get to my point, I have an old computer that I am testing security programs on, so that when I buy my new computer, it has the most up to date, and what I deem the "best" security programs. (I know its impossible to be completely protected, but you can go to certain extremes with security)
I know that currently Combofix seems to be one of the best public programs used for removing trojans, worms, and rootkits. What I do not understand is why people are so anal, to those of us that have a working knowledge of computers, when it comes to reading combofix logs? (Even though most of them are quite self explanatory)
I have realized that part of the problems, and reasons that people in fact get infected by malware, trojans etc., is because of there lack of knowledge in these subjects, and do not understand why those who know this knowledge are so ARROGANT to share it. (If you don't want it known DON'T GO PUBLIC!)
