What Is Spyware?
Spyware is a type of malware specially designed to damage a PC, server, computer network, or storage device. It can also collect information about an organization or person without their knowledge.
ComboFix is a handy on-demand spyware scanner. Once downloaded, simply open the ComboFix.exe file to start the whole process right away.
Here’s how it works: ComboFix first backs up the Windows Registry and then creates a System Restore Point. The analysis will then start automatically, and the results will be displayed in the prompt .
When the spyware scan completes, a log file is created in the C: ComboFix.txt folder and opens for reading. Here you can see if spyware has been detected and removed and which spyware has been detected , but not removed (which can be removed manually or use another removal tool).
ComboFix only works on Windows 8 (not 8.1), 7, Vista and XP.
