Long time lurker and faithful follow of bleeping computer. What a wealth of knowledge and support here which is uncanny. Just as the title states I am heading off to college in a few weeks with my new windows 8.1 computer in hand. In the past I had no fear of remvoing and fixing my PC's especially with the assistance of what I considered to be the best program Combofix. Well it is not supported on windows 8.1 obviously so now my nerves are rising. What program would be near Combofix's abilites if any? Also, what is the must have programs I should use to keep or kill threats so if the time should come I will have the smallest amount of downtime and be able to get back up and running in my dorm. Thanks all !!!
