ComboFix *not* currently down

You can google this, but essentially, it appears that a certain rootkit *might* cause combofix to delete all system files. You shouldn't use combofix.exe until it reappears on Also, please don't attempt to host combofix.exe yourself.

I'm posting as a service because I've suggested using combofix in the past. I have no other association with sUBs or combofix or bleeping computer.

There has been released a BETA that apparently doesn't do the bad things... I suggest following BleepinComputer for updated info.

Apparently, combofix has been erm... fixed. Thanks for stopping by.
