Where did you download ComboFix from?

The official site for downloading ComboFix is provided in the authorized Guide and tutorial on How to use ComboFix. The link in that guide redirects to ComboFix Download page hosted by BleepingComputer.

There are a number of unofficial sites which host various versions of ComboFix (many are outdated) and some may even charge a fee. ComboFix.org and ComboFixdownload.com offer unauthorized versions of ComboFix and the download links are seldom current. Neither of these sites are affiliated with ComboFix by sUBs.

If you downloaded from Bleeping Computer, v.15-02-16.01 is the most recent update. I checked at the developer's site and one of their experts was able to run it normally but there was at least one report of a user who received an expired message.

Being a technician or not doesn't matter here I think Di, since I am a technician myself but I don't know how to use ComboFix, hence why people that know how to use it went throught a malware removal training. Most technicians won't use FRST, OTL, DDS, ComboFix, etc. because they don't know what these tools are, what they do and even less that they exists. Just because you have a job, doesn't mean that you know everything about it hence why Alex linked you the ComboFix thread from quietman, to show you the dangers of using a such tool if you weren't trained to use it.

ok. Nobody knows everything. I got that a long time ago (aprox. 15 years). I know the danger about use that tools. Here the combobix its called "mad dog" (because if it does not find the problem , then it bites the owner). 

Ty for advise. 

To finish that subject:
