I am a technician of 20+ years from Canada and Combofix is just a great program alltogether and should be praised anytime we can.

Does anyone know if a 64 bit version is in the works or finished?

I just recently joined bleepingcomputer and I really like this site, good job everyone! :thumbsup:

Thanks,

Donlizard

You can find everything related to ComboFix we are allowed to discuss, according to the authors wishes, in public forums, here: ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here

With regards to a 64 bit version: Since 64 bit systems are inherently more secure by OS architecture, there are currently no plans to support 64 bit OS' according to the author.

Sorry I put my post in the wrong area.

64 bit systems are not definitley not more secure then any 32 bit Windows OS.

I have 2 laptops on my bench right now (Vista 64 bit and Windows 7 64 bit) that are just virused and spy/malware destroyed to the nuts.

With an additional 6 more on the shelf not started yet, I would be very nice to have a 64 bit version.

Just crazy stuff going on out there.

Oh well no biggie ....

Thanks, Animal

64-bit drivers need to be digitally signed. Due to the architecture in 64-bit windows, rootkits are not seen as often in 64-bit machines so they are less prone to that type of infection.
