Do NOT run Combofix without our guidance

I'm seeing some frequent suggestions by new members that Combofix will resolve just about any problem! The latest suggestion is that it is THE fix for the Google Direct. It isn't for the simple reason that there is no one cause for this redirect.

Combofix IS a good program and malware cleaning helpers do recommend it frequently, but only AFTER the preliminary programs have been run and then only if it's appropriate.

Combofix should only be run if the malware helper instructs you to run it and then it will be with guidance.

The number of posts here doesn't mean much, but when a newbie starts recommending malware cleaning programs, it will not be in your best interest to run them.. Sometimes the initial problem may be resolved after running Combofix, but that does NOT mean that the system is clean, or that it was the most appropriate program to run.
