Hello all, I am just curious as to the compatibility of Combofix on Windows Vista and Windows 7. Has it been tested and approved for use on the newer Windows OS's?

As a computer technician, I am removing malware from systems on a daily basis. 90% of the systems I see are running XP and Combofix has been a godsend. I have also used it on Vista with no ill effects so far, however with Windows 7 out now I am starting to feel a little un-easy.

I am also wondering about it's use in 64-bit operating systems.

Unfortunately the author of the tool does not want information on how Combofix works on public forums. This is in order to safeguard and protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers. As such, the developer does not want his tool discussed outside of private forums and therefore we cannot answer specific questions. That's the decision by the creator and we will abide by that decision.
Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

The only public information that is available can be found at this guide:
