Is there COMBO FIX software being developed to be compatible in a Windows 8.1 OS?

Note: Although not listed in the Authorized Guide, ComboFix will run on Windows 8 (32-bit and 64-bit).
ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8.1 yet so you cannot get it to run.

sUBs has advised that he is holding off releasing any working version 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 they work safely on that OS.

If you need individual assistance with a malware infection that requires using ComboFix, please follow the instructions in the Preparation Guide For Requesting Help starting at Step 6.
  • If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next.
  • In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create two logs. (Note: Windows 8.1 Users will not be able run DDS and create a log)
When you have done that, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here, for assistance by the Malware Response Team Experts.
