Hi all,

Hi rambro!

Thanks for your inquiry!

First and for all, for all those who are reading this, DO NOT RUN COMBOFIX UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY A TRAINED HELPER!!

Please note: ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert." It is NOT for unsupervised use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

The only public information regarding the usage of ComboFix can be found in the official tutorial here: http://www.bleepingc...to-use-combofix

Any other information regarding ComboFix is safeguarded to protect the integrity of the tool, and to prevent malware writers from getting ideas on how to avoid this tool.

The public tutorial for OTL can be located here: http://www.geekstogo...ldtimer-listit/

If you’ve already received training and/or experience helping on another forum, please PM (private message) admin , or Elster with the details. If it’s from an approved site, we’ll modify your forum permissions accordingly.

Above tidbit taken from here: http://www.geekstogo.com/geeku/

Hope this helps and answers the question you were asking.

Warmest Regards,

As requested by the developers of combofix and OTL, and to prevent inexperienced users from causing harm, the tutorials linked by SweeTech above are the only public information available.
