I downloaded Combofix from this Bleeping Computer and tried to run it in windows 8.1 but it comes up with "windows 2000 no longer supported" 
WTH?

Edit: Moved topic from Windows 8 to the more appropriate forum.~ Animal

This program does not work on Windows 8.1 at this time!

What type of issues are you dealing with which require using ComboFix?

Preliminary scans from other tools like DDS, OTL, Zoek and RSIT should be used first because they provide comprehensive logs with specific details about files, folders and registry keys which may have been modified by malware infection. Analysis of those logs allows planning a strategy for effective disinfection and a determination if using ComboFix is necessary.
