How to use combofix:

Please use the official ComboFix guide in the below link:

2. Download Combofix.
Download combofix from the direct link above and save it to your Desktop.

  • You should know version of Windows. Right click the My computer icon. Click Properties. In the window read information about your Windows version.
  • Click here for open Microsoft’s website.
  • Scroll down.

4. Run combofix.

  • Double click Combofix.exe icon on your Desktop to start it.
  • If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it’s malware removal procedures, if no, then follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console. Once installed, you should see the following message:

    The recovery console was successfuly installed.
    Click ‘YES’ to continue scanning for malware
    Click ‘NO’ for exit

    Click YES button.

  • The scan will temporarily disable your desktop, and if interrupted may leave your desktop disabled. If this occurs, please reboot to restore the desktop. Even when ComboFix appears to be doing nothing, look at your “drive access” light. If it is flashing, Combofix is still at work.
  • When finished, it shall produce a log for you.

Note: Do not mouseclick combofix’s window while its running. That may cause it to stall

Questions and Answers:

1. I ran combofix which can affect autorun so now autorun and autoplay is not working.

Combofix prevents autorun of all CDs, floppies and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. Read how to disable/enable autorun and autoplay.

2. No internet connection after running Combofix.

Restart your computer to restore back your connection. If it does not work, then click Start ->Settings -> Control Panel. Double click to Network connections. Locate your connection and right click on it. In the menu click to Repair option. When repair proccess has finished, your connection should be working again.

3. I ran combofix and got error message saying “This copy of combofix has expired”.

Download an updated copy from here or change your PC system time to some days ago (7days for example). Warning, only if first option don`t work.

4. How to uninstall combofix.

After using Combofix, you may uninstall it from your PC. Read how to uninstall combofix.

5. What should i do with QooBox and Combofix files ?

Use command: combofix /uninstall for uninstalling of combofix and removing all combofix files and QooBox directory. Read more here

6. Combofix is virus ?

No, No, No. Some security programs will incorrectly identify this tool as potentially or actually malicious due to some of it’s components. Although these files can be used maliciously, they are an integral part of the fix and I recommend you disable your antivirus.

I strongly suggest that you post your log at My AntiSpyware Forum and finally remove the items as directed by the Member helping you. This involves no analysis of the list contents by you. That will be done by the Help Forum Staff.

    BSOD. But other than that this tool will get just about any rootkit (excluding mbr rootkits) out of the kernal that gmer wont get.

    Kind assist me with the combofix software.

    Thank you.

    Comment by John England — July 23, 2008 #

  90. John, probably it`s not spyware/malware problem. Try to reinstall yahoo messenger.
    If it will not help, then read topic – How to use Spyware Removal Forum

    Comment by Patrik — July 23, 2008 #

  91. this is a great program, i recently used a version (not sure wich version it was, i had to set my date back to 9 july 2008 then run it) only thing i noticed was it left my Cookie settings at “Accept All cookies” wich i thought ide mention because for noobs leaving that setting off (defeats the object of running this in the first place) so if your new to this, after you run it, just give your settings a once over incase anythings changed (mainly cookies & empty temp net options)
    other than that, great app 😀

    Comment by William — August 30, 2008 #

  139. 10-12 hours for the scan, it`s many more. Try to run Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware before combofix.

    Comment by Patrik — August 31, 2008 #

  140. Have run this twice now letting it run the last time for over 24 hours. The message never changes from

    “Preparing log reports, Do not run any programs…”

    Any ideas? I would be happy if it finished.

    Comment by William — September 1, 2008 #

  141. William, make a new topic at Spyware help forum with details of your problem. Please include Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and HijackThis log.

    Comment by Jens Frandsen — September 5, 2008 #

  145. well, perhaps it froze when i clicked with the mouse to bring back the screen (monitor power saving). Anyways, I eventually rebooted, and the pc is working as it should. Time will tell if it cleaned out everything or not, but so far, it’s like it’s new again.

  166. hi,
    Hatsoff to combofix!!!
    i had tried almost all of the antivirus(mcafee. panda .nod32, symantic trndmicro ) & antimalware softwares for removing ckvo.exe malware but failed everytime ,as it replicates itself again on booting . Combofix is the most wonderful utility for removing most of the nasty malwares including ckvo.exe. This malware has no cure aceept combofix .none of the antivirus software could remove this deadly malware.

  184. These files below did quite a horror job on my system. I am not sure if it was one or two infections, but these were fingered with Combofix.


    The desktop and taskbar disappeared. There were registry entries connected to Winlogon. Deleting the files concerned was impossible until Combofix did it’s job. Great program, worked well, but be patient, as it works hard. Thanks a bunch!

    Comment by Magus — October 29, 2008 #

  185. I dont get how these peeps dont see what this program really does,,why would you run something that is going to stop your antivirus and remove files w/o your permission,there are alot of proggys out there to do what is needed,,there is no such thing as a all in 1 fix,so im very much appauled as to this company even thinking about giving this program to regular peeps,,im sure the ones who wrote these comments had no 3rd party fwall running or sygate or uniblue,,,no reason to ever run a program thas going to delete files that your computer needs,,thas defeating the purpose of not reformating,,,i ran this program, and i work on networks and computers daily.Im an IT guy for a big corp..but anyway,,when i ran this program it deleted the main AV,,and alot of files that were needed for the server and network.I ran this program on a brand new puter out of box and it del files that were needed to run the main kernal,,whyyyyy would u release a program that does that ,,doesnt make any sense,,and i knew what I was doing,,i feel sorry for those peeps that didnt comment ,,they probably dont have a computer now to get online,trust me folks when i say,theres plenty of programs to do what this so called 1 fix does without you having to reinstall 20 of your programs,,,This was the worst program by far i have ever seen released to the public,,i will be in touch ,,im investigating your sources as we speak,,anywayy,,,sad ,,try anything else ..plezzz,,thas my 25 cents,,thxxxx

In any way ComboFix did not delete any of my operating system files like you insinuate. Go use your stupid macfee and leave these people alone.Just follow your instructions carefully and you will see. My 50 cent,,thxxxxx Mr

    First I thought spyware doctor and AVG gonna destroy these viruses but it can’t.
    I tried delete manually using cmd still the autorun.inf can’t be deleted.

    Eventhough it say turn off my antivirus, I don’t care much cause I lose hope and I was thinking about reinstall my windows.

    After I run the software, It doesn’t just deleted the autorun.inf but other viruses as well.

    before I can’t view my hidden files and now I can.

    This is the best software ever… THANK YOU

Should be used with care read the prompts, it should be used after other attempts at removal fail. IE. Spybot S&D, and Adaware 2008, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool. and a Reliable Virus Scan as in Avast, etc… But it truly is remarkable… I wish to thank the creators. Thanks

Another fantastic free Anti Virus is Malware Bytes’ Anti Malware, but that too could not remove New Folder virus as well as could not enable my reg edit functionality due to some virus attack. Combo fix rocks…

    Comment by Martina Finn — January 5, 2009 #

  254. Combofix rescued me from 2 days of big PC trouble – infected by virtumonde. I have both SpySweeper and ZoneAlarm, and neither of these fixed it, but Combofix did remove it. On my winXP sp3 machine, I tried a lot of stuff (Spysweeper scans, ZoneAlarm scans, editing registry files, deleting dlls: but it kept coming back; the memory resident component kept repairing the infected registry keys I deleted. In addition to taking control of IE, Virtumonde also blocked calls to Microsoft updates! But Combofix kicked a@@.

    Comment by Alex Umeanozie — January 25, 2009 #

  270. Wow, this is great software.

    I think one thing it’s doing is replacing all the system files from the recovery disk set, which makes total sense. I don’t know why other spyware products don’t do this.

    One question: if it is replacing the files, some of them need to be updated with Windows Update. Will that work, or is it necessary to somehow reset Windows Update so that it knows it should reapply the necessary updates?

    Thanks a lot!

  316. in desperate measures, you can run in regular desktop mode, with restore off, still gets them, then reboot and set restore. I do it all the time- has never failed me on over 10 thous.machines.

  317. this is a great program, i recently used a version (not sure wich version it was, i had to set my date back to 9 july 2008 then run it) only thing i noticed was it left my Cookie settings at “Accept All cookies” wich i thought ide mention because for noobs leaving that setting off (defeats the object of running this in the first place) so if your new to this, after you run it, just give your settings a once over incase anythings changed (mainly cookies & empty temp net options)
    other than that, great ap :)

  333. Installed this POS and it has screwed up my PC. It disabled my antivirus program. Tried to uninstall and reinstall it but it will not let me. Tried installing a different antivirus and it will not let me update it. My PC was working good before I installed this thing. Was just wanting to add a good tool to my arsenal. Now I am screwed. Thanks for NOTHING!!!!

    Comment by Shawn — May 7, 2009 #

  334. Shawn, you have read:

    You should not run ComboFix unless you are specifically asked to by a helper. Also, due to the power of this tool it is strongly advised that you do not attempt to act upon any of the information displayed by ComboFix without supervision from someone who has been properly trained. If you do so, it may lead to problems with the normal functionality of your computer

    before using Combofix ?

    Comment by Patrik — May 7, 2009 #

  338. So when i clicked the links it said “High security Alert” and that the file has been infected and quarantined. Does anyone have the uninfected file? I would very much appreciate it. Thanks!

    Comment by Matt — May 30, 2009 #

  339. Hmm, two variants:
    1. you infected with malware, that blocks downloading of combofix.
    2. your antvirus blocks it In the case disable your antivirus before downloading/using Combofix.

    Comment by nick — June 5, 2009 #

  343. Nick, probably a few system files are damaged or deleted. Try it, boot in Windows, if no taskbar here, then press CTRL + ALT + DEL, Task manager will open, click File->Run, type explorer.exe and press Enter.

    Comment by yamuna — June 24, 2009 #

  346. Thanks. I had thought I had overdownloaded anti everything programs that contributed to my PC either not restarting correctly or not at all so I uninstalled several of them and when I restarted happily, I got a weird address in the address bar so after checking, I found Combofix, followed the directions and now feel like my PC has been reborn!! Does it run in the background continually? Just wondering.

    Comment by Susan — June 26, 2009 #

  347. Does it run in the background continually?

    No, you should use an antispyware program with autoprotection.
    Try SpyBot – Search&Destroy

    Comment by Patrik — June 26, 2009 #

  352. Combofix removed the Virtumonde files from my computer, and restored the Chkdsk function and the Defrag and Restore Point utilities! No other antivirus program managed to do that in the past month. Great job, Combofix!

    Comment by Bert McDougal — July 7, 2009 #

  353. This is the greatest program ever! I know that sounds stupid but its true. I thought my registry was wasted and I was gonna have to system restore. Fortunately, a friend told me about this and boy was he right when he said

    Comment by Ricky — September 7, 2009 #

  364. “my computer” and also unable to defrag the HD. After using combofix it all worked again and I could then run Spybot Search and Destroy and remove the remaining. Can’t thank you enough, Awesome!!!

    Comment by Ricky — September 7, 2009 #

  365. As a professional for over 10 years it is very unusual for me to be unable to fix a computer problem. Sometimes, though, when Nod32, Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D report a clean system after long scans, Combofix fixes the problems quickly. I really would like to know how it works though (and why other malware programs fail). Many thanks for such a super tool.

    Comment by Simon Clarke — September 17, 2009 #

  366. Simon, combofix.exe is sfx rar archive. You can extract it and look what is and how`s working it.

    Comment by Patrik — September 18, 2009 #

  370. I keep getting the message (in the Command window) that I need to be logged on as Administrator to perform that task; doesn’t tell me what it is trying to do. I am logged on as Administrator. The program continues to run and apparently does it thing. Should I be concerned about this and is there a way to find out what the program is trying to do so I could run it from a Command prompt opened explicitly as Administrator? Thanks!

  371. Oh, forgot to say I am running Vista Home Premium, SP2.

    Comment by Randy — September 21, 2009 #

  374. If ComboFix will not run, renaming does not help, try this little nugget. Run the setup program for SuperAntiSpyware (can get from it will fail. Then try ComboFix again. Smiles 😀

  380. This program has saved my computer two times now. It’s fantastic and works wonderfully. I do suggest using a forum of professionals before using. It’s a highly powerful tool that, some with modest computer skills, may need guidance with.

    Comment by Cid — November 14, 2009 #

  383. I downloaded COMBOFIX yeah it did a job alright it made 3 Hard Drives data disappear no files. NONE ALL ON ONE DRIVE WAS ALL MY WORK NOW ITS GONE ITS HISTROY………………….tried to do a data recovery recovered some files but all overwritten. COMBOFIX was interrupted and no data on those 3 drives tried to view just from a defrag program didnt run all are black immovable. This program sucks anyone and it didnt create no log files to even know what the heck happened to them. Anyone have any ideas on getting these all back. I tried a restart, went to Safe Mode Command prompt nothing there on drives even tried attrib -a -h -s -r nothing there nothing.

    Comment by Patricia — December 1, 2009 #

  384. Patricia, Combofix is good spyware remover. Probably your computer is infected with trojans/rootkit that detected, that Combofix is running, and removed your files from hard disks.

    Comment by Patrik — December 1, 2009 #

  385. There was no ROOTKITS on my system that was checked a week ago prior to using this. I just need someone to tell me how to unlock all the files it shows immovable. It’s like it deleted the MBR Records for that drive and it is in a Firewire, all other hard disks are fine the one in the firewire is disk 4 and only 3 drives on it was damaged by this combofix. I have a total of 15 drives and I removed the combofix thinking it would unlock my 3 drives but it didnt. It looks like the data is still there we ran fdisk to view the partition information and there still is data there the way it looks. I just need to find out how to unlock that data from using this program.

    Comment by Patricia — December 2, 2009 #

  386. I problem, every time i download it i gives me error saying “you can’t change the name to combofix[1] I am not changing anything, what is this.

  393. I tried to run ComboFix and it was getting blocked by the rootkit. I rebooted and immediately opened ComboFix before the rootkit kicked in and it started running. Took about 30 minutes (including a reboot), but my computer is now clean, stinking antivirus rootkit is gone.
