I have relied heavily on Combofix to solve virus and other malware on OS's such as XP and Vista in the past and it has been a boon in remoing otherwise hard to find errors.

I realise that Combofix is not compatible with Windows 7. Are their any plans for the development of a version for Windows 7 or is there already a suitable replacement?

Best regards nad keep up the good work..........Websitespider

:huh: I used ComboFix on a 64-bit system and cannot get it to work?

System Requirements: Combofix currently only works with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/Windows 7 (32-bit).

Note: Although ComboFix will work on Windows 7, it is not officially supported yet so if it is run you will receive a warning message that it is a beta version meant for compatibility testing.

You should not be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for general public or personal use. Combofix was never meant to be used as a general purpose malware scanner like SuperAntispyware or Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.
