I attempted to download Combofix from both download sites onto 2 of my computers running Windows 7 and received an OS compatability message on both machines. Any advice? (My ISP security office says we have spam coming out of our ip address and recommended running CF. Have installed Open DNS to block suspect sites and hide our IP, but want to make sure the machines are clean.)

:thumbsup: 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.
