Does ComboFix work correctly on Windows 10?

I figure that I would ask this question before attempting to run ComboFix on Windows 10 just in case there were some issues that I need to know about.

You have to be careful when conducting searches on the Internet as there is a lot of useless and misinformation out there. Scammers take advantage of uninformed folks and entice them into downloading junk software using gimmicks, false claims and other deceptive advertising. When performing search queries, always check multiple sources to confirm the information provided is consistent and essentially the same.

Per the link provided by Platypus?

If you attempt to use ComboFix on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, or Windows 2000 it should provide a message alert and exit. These are generic messages and intentional by design when attempting to run ComboFix on an unsupported Windows version.
