I have a virus running my CPU (quad 4) so I came to this site to download Combo Fix. I get an error message saying download is not enabled. Any new ideas on how to get around this? Thanks

Fixed it. I did a system restore. Then I was able to download Combo Fix. I had an issue with AVG after a recent update. Now running Microsoft Essentials instead.

Following excerpts are   From How To Use ComboFix :


"ComboFix is a program, created by sUBs, that scans your computer for known malware, and when found, attempts to clean these infections automatically. In addition to being able to remove a large amount of the most common and current malware, ComboFix also displays a report that can be used by trained helpers to remove malware that is not automatically removed by the program.


You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer.


Please note that this guide is the only authorized guide for the use of ComboFix and cannot be copied without permission from BleepingComputer.com and sUBs. Furthermore, the ComboFix program cannot be hosted at any other site without direct permission from the developer. It is also understood that the use of ComboFix is done at your own risk.

Using ComboFix

If you need help with malware removal, then please create a topic at one of the forums listed later in the guide and ask for help. Please note that each forum has different policies, so please be sure to read any pinned topics and rules for the particular forum about how you should go about receiving help. If a ComboFix log has been requested by a helper then please create one by following the instructions below."


Also note that there is a notice on the main page of this forum which emphasizes the fact that malware topics and data are not to be posted in this forum, since the focus of this forum is non-malware and non-hardware issues that relate to the Win 7 O/S.  See No DDS, HijackThis, or ComboFix logs - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/forum-167/announcement-45-no-dds-hijackthis-or-combofix-logs-should-be-posted-in-this-forum/ .


Since malware issues are not the province of this forum, it goes without saying that questions about tools used to attempt to neutralize malware...are also not in the appropriate forum if posted here.


This topic is now closed.
