Combofix Tutorial:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/Also DO NOT Post a Combofix log in this forum
It is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator
to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert
", NOT for general public or personal use
. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer
. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
Edit: Also, you should note that Combofix isn't just something to "have on your computer". It's not something that gets installed. It doesn't run in the background. It doesn't protect your computer from anything. It's a tool that is used by trained personel to aid in the removal of various, but not all, malware infections.
Think of Combofix as a very sharp knife. It can be used to butter your bread, but used incorrectly can also harm. It's all about how it is used. You can potentially damage your system from using Combofix incorrectly.
