I have been to more than a dozen sites. All ability to access any ComboFix downloads have been met with no valid websites, or downloads that won't work and can't replace the existing file...etc.

What's going on? Mine was expired. I've taken all previous versions out. Where can I download it? This is ridiculous! Don't tell me the bad guys are preventing anyone from using it?

Hello DiamondOne,

Do tell us why you are thinking of getting Combofix ? This tool should only be used with the help of an expert.
What is the reason for your inquiring? Do you have a malware issue?

And yes, the bad guys at times do block the running of the tool; although, not the authorized download sites.

If you do have a malware infection issue, make sure you first do the preliminaries and follow the steps outlined on this sub-forum at this topmost note

--> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

~~ updated note ~~
Downloads of Combofix are temporarily un-available, just so you know. This is temporary but we do not yet know how long it will be like that.

P.S.S. do NOT get any Combofix unless it is from an official site and then ONLY after an expert helper is helping you AND he/she has asked you to get it. Please have patience.

I have been using ComboFix for a LONG time. I know what I'm doing.

None of the sites have a valid link...including this one. Every link leads to an http404 error, or website not found. And I'm not paying for mirrors or torrents.

Everybody else redirects to a site that is not valid.

Since you are not posting a DDS report as required, I will be closing this thread.
If you require help with malware removal, the forum requires you to follow the requirements and post a log.
If you need malware removal help and need this re-opened, contact a moderator.
