Running ComboFix by yourself is like performing open heart surgery on yourself--the scalpel and other surgical tools that is ComboFix is meant to be wielded by a highly trained surgeon only in emergencies or dire circumstances. When the surgeon is thru s/he leaves the room. So combofix should be removed from a system once it has accomplished its job, unlike an AV that is there to protect you from future infections.
. . . CF does make some alterations to your system if you run it. Even if you had no malware removed and run the uninstall command, some things may be different now on your system. I can tell you that one thing is that all your restore points will be flushed out and a new one created. There is a good reason to do that when you have a severe infection--but if you aren't infected you might need those restore points.
Read and abide by the disclaimer people. It's there for a reason. Stick to running and protecting yourself with a good AV and firewall and an anti-malware scanner or two. If you feel you need a second opinion, try running online scans. If you feel you might need surgery, come here to BC and ask for help--that is what we're here for.

Malware removal using specialized tools is not a matter of luck. It requires extensive training in many areas and a thorough understanding of not only the tool but the specific operating system being used, the malware involved and the approach to neutralizing the infection.
I was simply wondering if you have another tools that could be used, or/and have more luck into removing Max++ rootkit. I honestly don't belive that I require teaching on the How-To on virus removal as I perform about 10 removal of Infection daily.
They are not intended to be general scanning tools and they are only in part intended to be automatic. Both require an understanding and analysis of the logs generated as well as the tool itself in order to use it's advanced features.
as I am simply seeking tools...something Automatic such as ComboFix or Smitfaudfix.
That statement tells me differently as everyone requires teaching to some degree. To believe otherwise shows ignorance or arrogance. The state of malware and procedures to disinfect a machine are constantly changing and our experts will tell you the importance of learning and relearning cannot be emphasized enough in order to keep current with successful malware removal techniques. As such, the BC staff would not allow any member to provide advice in this area without undergoing or demonstrating extensive training and knowledge. Even then, training never ends for expert Helpers who constantly strive to refine their skills and ability.
