ComboFix is an Anti-Malware tool used by advanced malware technicians
specifically trained in its use.
Please DO NOT USE COMBOFIX on your own without supervision!!!
We ask that you obey the warnings about using this tool. Why? The warnings are given for a reason and one of them is to inform our members about the consequences that may occur when using ComboFix in an unsupervised environment. Yes, ComboFix is an excellent but powerful tool. I liken it to Acetaminophen (Tylenol). Used correctly, the drug will help with your aches and pains. Used incorrectly, it can destroy your liver and eventually kill you. The same scenario applies to ComboFix. Used in untrained hands this tool can disable your computer and in some cases can make it unbootable. Further, trained helpers prefer to see preliminary scans from other tools like DDS and GMER before asking anyone to run Combofix because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows checking for the presence of rootkits, planning an strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.
