How to use Combofix

Combofix is a freeware portable application created by sUBs, it was designed to scan a computer for known malware & spyware and, if found, attempt to automatically clean the infection. It 's a effective cleaning tool, which is useful compared to other malware and spyware removers. I use this application very frequently in removing nasty Antivirus 2008 and its variants. In addition it also shows you a log files that you can use to search and remove infections which are not automatically removed.

Malware, short for malicious software, is software designed to infiltrate a computer system without the owner's informed consent. The expression is a general term used by computer professionals to mean a variety of forms of hostile, intrusive, or annoying software or program code. -Wikipedia
