Over the past several years I have had really nasty spyware issues on friends computers. I came across a small applicaiton that a guy writes and updates that will reboot your machine and actually scan before windows even starts. the software is EXCELLENT and has worked for me every time on the nastiest of nasties. Every time I use it I swear that I am going to write it down somewhere I will remember, well here I am. I do rembember writing it down, but cant remember where.

I always have stumbled onto it while surfing looking for something specific. I cant for the life of me find it this time

Any idea?

Please DO NOT ever use combofix without expert supervision. It can cause machines to become UNBOOTABLE and completely unfixable.
