Hello everyone. I discovered Combofix a while back and love it. I finally decided to join the site.
I'm a computer repair pro and use it all the time. Kudos to the developers and to this site for making it available.

Hello and thanks for joining. It is a great tool but should only be used by someone with the right skills as you.

My questions is, where do i download the ComboFix????

I downloaded it once (i forgot where from), but the Disclaimer Screen didn't look the same as on your website provided.
At the beginning it said:

The following websites are not in a way affiliated to ComboFix
If you have purchased anything from them, I suggest you instruct your financiers to cancel the transaction.

...which was not on the screenshoot i saw on the tutorial.
Pls, give me instructions on this. Where can i download the ComboFix and run it?

ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.

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.

Please note that this guide is the only authorized guide for the use of ComboFix and cannot be copied without permission from BleepingComputer.com and sUBs. It is also understood that the use of ComboFix is done at your own risk.
