Hi, I have a PC under Windows 8.1, 64b and I can't run DDS. When I click on DDS.com I get: "DDS is not meant to run in Compatibility Mode. The program shall now exit" I had not ptoblem when I was under XP SP3 32b. Is it a problem of compatibility with this last Windows version? Thanks for your help Brit06

sUBs has recently advised that he is holding off releasing any of his tools for Windows 8.1 which includes both ComboFix and DDS. Meaning he is fully aware of the compatibility issue but needs time for thorough testing to ensure it works safely on that OS.
