What is ComboFix?

ComboFix is a freeware tool to scan and remove Windows malicious files and malware components. If you find infected files, the application automatically will try to remove them. This software works with Windows 8, but not Windows 8.1!

When you start the program ComboFix will automatically scan all files including in system recycle bin, Temporary Internet Files folder, and a temporary folder. If you store important data in these locations it is recommended that you will backup or transfer files to another location. ComboFix will first create a new System Restore point, which will allow us to restore all system settings in case of any irregularities. Next, the program creates a backup system registry and proceeds to scan your system.

ComboFix generates a full report on the changes and save it to a text file. Before running ComboFix the developer recommends to disable all running programs, including antivirus software.
