First off I do not know if I am in the right place or not. If I am not please move me! thanks

Can Combofix be used in a corp environment with out any repercussions? I have looked to try to contact anyone at combofix.org but there is no e-mail or anything. I would really like to get hold them via e-mail so that I can see what their stance is on using it. We're trying to go Legit at my workplace and need to know what we need to do in order to get this tool in our software team.

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.

Without answering your question about the legit-part, I would like to pull your attention to the above.

regards, Elise

Combofix.org is not a legitimate site
The author, is a member or many different malware support sites, but to my knowledge he does not maintain his own site
He might or might not see this and possibly respond

Here is the reply I got from the author of ComboFix:

The tool isn't meant for the corporate environment. It will reset much of the machine's local policies to ms defaults.

combofix.org is some rogue site.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
