Hellow to every body. I have just registered to bleeping computer. It was recommended to by an IT technician because my computer is becoming slow and he recommended i use combo Fix. Those of you who have experience with it can assure me of its use.

There are all sorts of reasons your computer may be slowing down; another important consideration is whether you are preforming routine file maintenance on your hard drive or not.

Most of us here would advise you to be extremely careful using any kind of registry cleaners; if you are not extremely careful in examining the application's candidates for deletion, you can really muck up your operating system. Most of the time, the benefits to cleaning up the registry are far less than one would suppose, and considering the potential problems not that effective.

Using combofix should only be done under the guidance of experts; so if you think the problem is caused by malware, I would suggest submitting a log to our volunteer staff of professional malware removers:
