ComboFix is not a Weekly / Monthly general scanner. It is a one time use for Experts only -
Or scroll down to > > 4. Free Online Scanners From our list
We / I normally use ESET Online Scanner to check and remove infections >
1.Hold down Control and click HERE to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
2.Click the ESET Online Scanner button.
3.NOTE :.For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
1.Click on esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
2.Double click on the ESET Online Scanner icon on your desktop.
5.Click the Start button.
6.Accept any security warnings from your browser.
7.Under scan settings, check "Scan Archives" and "Remove found threats"
8.Click Advanced settings and select the following:
Scan potentially unwanted applications
Scan for potentially unsafe applications
Enable Anti-Stealth technology
9.ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this will take some time to download the program for a first time, and then download updated data base (1 to 3 hours is not unusual on an infected computer)
10.When the scan completes, click List Threats
11.Click Export, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan.
12.Click the Back button.
13.Click the Finish button
Thank You -

I would have to agree that ComboFix certainly shouldn't be run as a routine tool. It's pretty safe, but occasionally it can trash a system, and in spite of the fact that it always tries to create a system restore point, sometimes the restore doesn't work. I'd stick with MBAM and the AV of your choice for routine scans.
