Sorry but discussions 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.

Yes, I agree, I will cease and desist talking about the workings of combofix.
Alexhem, I am not sure I fully understand your question. ComboFix will show a list of all filenames that it removes.
Just to add a bit to what the boss has already stated.
You also need to know how to read the logs, and from there work out the How / When / Why / and Where a problem is located.
This is a years worth of training, and not just running a blind scan whenever you feel like "playing" -
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Free (aka MBAM) and SUPERAntiSpyware Free (aka SAS) are designed for these random scans.
Only my 2 cents worth (+30% for inflation) -
Thank You -
Yes, the log does tell me which files and/or folders were deleted. But it doesn't show the name of the malware it deleted, for example, a file called temp.exe was deleted, but the report will not say that temp.exe was deleted because it found the storm worm (Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Small.dam) inside it. I think answering this from anyone at this point violates the first rule of talking about combofix, so I'll stop. But that's what I meant about naming the malware.
Alright, break-it-up, nothing to see here, move along.
