Hi, just learned about Combofix from a forum I was reading through to get rid of malware on my comp. So i decided to follow the guide and tried to download Combofix.exe. After it downloads, it completely disappears like it never was there. I tried to save it to the desktop and watched as the download finished and just poof was gone. No file found nothing. Is this a problem with the download/file or am I just doing something wrong? If someone can help me out that would be awesome! thanx in advance! Oh I'm currently running XP sp3, if that gets me some more help lol!

Welcome kazpr29,

You'll get more appropriate help in the malware forums (Security -> Am I infected) on this site, click here. Once you're there, please read the bold blue cautions on using ComboFix at the top of the screen.

Good luck,
