I wished to try this SW & I did see the "don't use unless asked to" warning on the BC download page.
I thought I was familiar with how it would run but I immediately came across an unexpected problem.
Combofix started & advised I had two AV programs running which I should close before proceeding.
BUT ................ how the hell do you disable Avast & MSSE?
A quick Google & MSS was disabled for one hour but Avast demanded a password & then refused my passwords.
Now I can't go forward or backwards because Combofix can't be aborted.
I would have liked to have been warned of this.
I have no option but to reboot with Combofix still "waiting" - don't wish to proceed bearing in mind the warnings!
OK so now it takes forever but eventually after downloading a special Avast uninstaller & using Safe Mode I have Avast uninstalled.
I try Combofix again but now it refuses to run saying:
"Combofix can not be run in compatibility mode".
This is a trap anyone could fall into & I suggest Combofix has a back or abort button for such situations.
Is there anyway to restore whatever has happened to prevent Combofix from running?
