Hi.  

 

Combofix was run (on my own) under Win 7 some time ago.  In the mean time I have upgraded from Win 7 to Win 8.1 to Win 10.  However, (with hindsight) it appears that I did not uninstall Combofix properly as I found the Combofix folder is still on my C: drive (whilst checking my storage usage) - unfortunately after having upgraded to Win 10. Please advise how I can remove the Combofix folder/uninstall Combofix without damaging anything as Combofix is not supported on Win 10?

 

Thank you.

Vari

Hi there,

Please download DelFix by Xplode from here and run it as Administrator. Place a checkmark in Remove disinfection tools, then click Run. The tool will remove the remains of ComboFix on your system.
