Downloaded Combofix today.

Logged in Normall Mode and Safe Mode as Admin.

Intel Pentium 2.8GHZ CPU and 2GB Memory

WnXP SP3 Home

Using the task manager i have shutdown all unrequired processes.

Using msconfig i have disabled several startup programs too.

There is Oooodles of memory available and free for use.

Combofix displays a black dos box for roughly 1 second with the words: "Program too big to fit into memory"

Any thoughts or ideas?

I also have this issue. If I use the "ForoSpyware.com Mirror" link, I get a version which runs, but which says it has expired, and only allows me to run in "reduced functionality" mode (starting at Scan_49).

I too have no issues with running a two day old version of Combofix.

I think the combofix.exe file has been compromised.

I doubt that very much, more likely to be a programing issue / error.

I'm sure the program vendour will be investigating the problem and rectifying it asap.

Keep up the excellent work, combofix is an outstanding product.

Yeah, your probably right. The Combofix guys are probably working on it as we speak. I agree Combofix has been a great tool in my arsenal for years. I'm going to donate some money soon.
