Have anyone here used before ComboFix?

Is ComboFix a virus? Because some anti-virus detect as virus. Avira detected as a virus. I think the sedfix.exe inside the ComboFix.exe detected as a virus.

No it's not a virus, it's an anti-malware tool and it seems like a false positive. Why do you have it downloaded?

It is rather common for some components of ComboFix to get picked up in an AntiVirus scan - james_8970 correctly points out that these are false positives and not anything to be concerned about. It should also be noted that ComboFix is a very powerful tool, and should not be used unless you are trained, or under the direction of someone trained in its usage.
