Is there a "printer friendly" version of the Combofix user instructions?
I did not see one on the page. IF there is one where will I find it?
Thanks

Sorry No.

Only trained helpers have access to this information.

Hate to be argumentative here BUT why then are the "instructions" even on the site if it's for "trained" helpers?
If it's not for use by mere mortals then the grandGuru should hide the instructions from the unwashed?
As a matter of fact I am supposedly working with a "trained helper" who wants me to use ComboFix.
Since he's in Spain and I'm in the USA I thought it prudent I have something in hand to READ in the event his instructions become garbled or something gets lost in the translation.
Thanks for your reply

These instructions are also confusing.

One paragraph says"...cannot be copied...." another paragranph says to "...print out this guide...."?
I guess I'm putting too much on the definitions of "print" and "copy"?

This is all the information that you can have.

Notice this remark.

You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper.

Sorry.

I feel it a privilege to be able to assist a member of the Malware Respose Team in locating the instructions to ComboFix.

But it does shake my confidence.
