I use combofix to clean up systems on a regular basis, and suddenly on the latest version, today, I cannot get it to run on any of the 64 bit Win 7 machines here.

Anyone else having this issue?

Also, I have downloaded it from Majorgeeks to just check and from bleeping computer, and both the same. Also, no red icon, just a generic windows icon.

This has already been reported to the developer so he is aware.

However, thanks for letting us know.

For what it's worth, there are only two authorized download sites.

Our download here, and the download from InfoSpyware.net which was and sometimes still referred to as Forospyware.com

As noted in the How to use ComboFix Guide.

And again, thank you for letting us know.
