I am not sure if i am posting this in the right place, but I am making a free program in vb.net called malware toolkit. It is just a collection of malware tools that you call access from one program. I want to include a link to download the latest version of combo fix but all the links i can find to download combofix expire after a little while. IS there a static link available that does not change were I can download the latest version?


Thanks!

There is not, for a number of reasons. One of which is to prevent automated download.

ComboFix is not and was never designed to be included in a bundle of tools. It is not a tool which should be run without a specific reason to run it, and should only be run at the direction of one trained in the use of the tool. To offer a comparison, think of ComboFix as a surgeon's scalpel. Such a tool should only be used when required, and only in the hands of a surgeon who can guide and manipulate the blade without causing collateral damage.

I should also point out that while ComboFix is freeware, including it or any similar tool in your application without the author's consent is ethically questionable at best.

Hope that helps,

~Blade

In addition to what Blade points out...I must caution that using older versions of ComboFix is not recommended. sUBs frequently updates ComboFix with new versions not only to keep it effective against malware but to minimize the possibility of risk or serious side effects which could result in system damage after running his tool. When that occurs, older versions may no longer work properly. This is a protective measure since most folks are unaware of version changes and we do not discuss what they are or what ComboFix does in public to protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers.
