Just wanted to share my experience with combofix. I've been doing support work for over 25 years and have used a lot of the tools I've learned about on BleepingComputer to resolve my customers problems. I got infected with an unknown virus/trojan and was unable to find or remove it using a number of removal tools...Malwarebytes, AVG, MRT, SuperAntiSpyware. plus a couple of on-line scanners. It disabled all of my installed AV and spyware apps plus regedit, msconfig, the Run command and even ctl-alt-delete so I couldn't even see what processes were running.

I downloaded combofix and in one pass everything was restored and operational again...COOL!!! Thanks to the person(s) who developed this great tool.

Combofix is available for those getting assistance by experts in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum.

Why for only those members?

It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. As such, no one should be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

That's the decision by the creator and we will abide by that decision.
