Hi Guys,

As an IT Professional I have used ComboFix for a long time now and have done 100's of fixes with this wonderful software. As we move forward in technology and manufacturers building laptops with 64 bit windows, i was wondering when or if there will be a 64bit version of combofix.

This would be extremely appreciated on my part

I too am curious about this. It seems that some of my clientel have managed to fubar their Win7 installs within a couple of months of it being available. As reliable as combofix has been for so many years, I am anxiously awaiting any news regarding 64bit support as well...

Completely different tool, with a completely different function.

Currently CF won't support any 64bit or Windows 7 systems. It will be released when it is ready. There is not definite date or time it will be released. It's a powerful tool and most 64bit systems are not severely infected systems and can be cleaned with other tools in where Combofix is not necessary always needed.
