Basically : NEVER, if you are not 100% sure of the operation of this specialised tool -
If you have a problem, please leave it to the Experts that know how the program works -

Please DO NOT USE COMBOFIX on your own without supervision!!!

Please read this link on the issues and dangers of using this tool without the correct diagnostics first, and the dangers of ComboFix >>

Used in untrained hands this tool can disable your computer and in some cases can make it unbootable.

Thank You -

Since you are asking about a specific action regarding ComboFix. The developer has requested that we abide by the following conditions as explained in a previous topic regarding ComboFix:

Discussion pertaining to how Combofx works, what it can or cannot do, what the log results mean, any future plans, updates, etc is not available to the public in order to safeguard and protect the integrity of the tool from malware writers. As such, the developer does not want his tool discussed outside of private forums and therefore we cannot answer specific questions.

Safeguarding ComboFix from malware writers is necessary and important so that we can continue to use it without attackers having knowledge how to defeat it. Everything we discuss can be read by the bad guys. Yes, they read forum topics looking for clues on how to circumvent our tools. We don't want to provide any information they can use against us so we deliberately limit discussion which sometimes may appear vague or not fully address a specific question. That's the decision by the creator of ComboFix so we hope you understand and it should not be taken personal.

The only public information that is available can be found in this authorized guide: How to use ComboFix.

Whilst I sincerely doubt that, the point is that you're not trained in how to use ComboFix and, as such, we're not allowed to discuss the operations of it (by request of the author of the tool).

If you would like to learn more about malware removal, including how to use ComboFix safely, you might like to consider joining the malware removal training program: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic86678.html
