I am trying to uninstall combofix according to the guide and tutorial on using ComboFix. I typed in on Windows 7, "Combofix /uninstall" and after running for a couple of minutes, I received the warning "Windows cannot find 'NIRCMD' make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again". After that the monitor went back to my start up page. What do I do or is ComboFix uninstalled??

Hi, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

If you still have the combofix.exe file on your computer, right click on it and select Rename. Rename the file to uninstall.exe and run it like that. If you get the same error, try to redownload combofix.

As a general note, it is not recommended to run combofix unsupervised; this is a powerful tool and can cause serious damage in some cases.

regards, Elise
