MBAM VS Combofix

Recommended Posts

First off, I bought your technicians version of MBAM and it's great. I always run MBAM first, then Combofix next. MBAM removes all the malware it finds, then reboots. If I run it again, it says the computer is clean. Next I run combofix next, and before it even gets started scanning good, it says it needs to reboot because of rootkit activity. This happens quite often. I am hoping you can upgrade MBAM's rootkit detection to find the rootkits easily like Combofix does. I can't use Combofix on Vista or Windows 7. I believe Combofix uses GMER.

Thank you for your consideration,

ComboFix is designed to be use by the trained people who help out in the forums. Unlike mbam which is made/maintained by a large group of persons, ComboFix is maintained by one person.

So, there's a higher chance of error. With a program endowed with such power, errors can be quite unforgiving.

It really isn't meant for general use.
