Editors' review

Combofix is a powerful anti-malware and anti-spyware program that can eliminate the type of combination programs that other apps often miss. It runs with no frills but produces impressive results, although it may be hard to use if you don't have a good amount of technical knowledge.

Pros

Fast: For as deep as this program goes to remove problem files and software, it works quite quickly. The deep scans of many similar programs take much longer than the intensive search-and-delete that this app performs.

Basic communication: While it's not overly forthcoming and doesn't provide you with a lot of obvious options, Combofix does let you know what it's doing while it's doing it. Steps are clearly presented, and the program really takes care of most details on its own.

Cons

Confusing for beginners: This is not a program you should try to use if you don't have some experience with this type of software or if you don't have someone there to help. Because the software is so powerful, it can sometimes delete items you need, so you have to be able to recognize them and know what to do to stop that from happening.

Bottom Line

Combofix is a great way to supplement standard system cleaners and keep your machine running smoothly. It works well and it's free, but it isn't for the novice user without some additional guidance.
