Hello jonm.

Can someone please explain why all the $$$$$$$$$$ making AV software companies can't do the same thing?

CF uses more powerful removal methods than AVs. If AVs did this, and a false detection occured, it may leave thousands of computer's crippled because they are so widely used. This is why we insist that CF only be used under supervision, so that any mishaps can be fixed and reported quickly.

With Regards,
The Panda

Perhaps we should add McAfee to our list of dangerous anti-malware tools? :thumbsup:

Seriously I cannot find any information except that his paypal is registered in Malaysia.....Really got to give whoever it is props he deserves a nobel prize or something ohmy.gif

Just to make sure everyone knows, the only real Paypal donation address for sUBs is: combofix@live.com. Others are impostors.




Because I almost donated to some guy with an AOL account, then I was like "AOL? something isn't right..."

So basically, this is his donation page is legit?
