There is a new beta version back up for the next few days, then hopefully it will go live. It has been deemed safe by the developer, sUBs.

@tzucker Yes I have used both but neither does quit what Combofix is capable of.\

@IndiGenus I crossed by the KittyFix but am skeptical of beta's, Have you used it yet and if so was it successful.

 The Evil-ution of Network Security Threats

What are the hacks that forever changed the security industry? To answer that question, we created an exciting new eBook that takes you on a trip through hacking history. It explores the top hacks from the 80s to 2010s, why they mattered, and how the security industry responded.

 
IndiGenusCommented:
Yes, I was part of the testing and had no problems. The issues were with the new TDL3 infections and machines not being bootable after running cf.

There is a risk with running any of the tools. This new infection goes about as deep into the system as you can get and removal (no matter how it's done)  can be a challenge and a risk.

Combofix is a risk as well and in my opinion it is worth it. I will try your suggestion. Thankyou.

Amazing what some people do with their free time. Looks like sUBs put him in his place.

"""I no longer recommend using Combofix to fix malware as the availability of the tool cannot be guaranteed.  Ive resorted to using System Restore""",...

Ya, that's effective.

Well, combo fix seem to be up and running again. Feel sorry for aleinss, he will be spending a lot more time fixing problems the hard way. Thank God for Combofix and thanks to sUBs for caring enough to rewrite the program so we don't have to fix an unbootable machine after it is cleaned so very well.
