Great toolbox to have to remove malware damage and reset hosts file

What do you like best?

When other methods fail to address a malware infection or viral damage that redirects the infected host computer, ComboFix can help you not only clean up the mess ravaged by said infection, but bring the system back to a pre-infection state. This tool allows you to reset the IE hosts file, so that when a client/user goes to look up a web link, they will find the correct site, and not a phishing scheme site, designed to defraud and erode productivity.

What do you dislike?

I like the ComboFix program, but many times it does not have adequate resources to allow you to create an image backup, before you implement irreversible changes. This tool is very powerful, but can do harm, rather than good, if it is used in a manner that is not precisely configured for what the situation warrants.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend this be only used with individuals that have moderate to advanced technical expertise.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool-set of various fixes allows a skilled technician to to try and repair any damage inflicted by viruses, malware, and redirects. This tool will work, when nothing else seems to fix the issue, barringa complete factory reset/reload.

Good last-step tool

What do you like best?

This is by far the biggest life-saving tool for IT professionals dealing with users that get viruses for us. This tool, although the last in my arsenal is one that is amazing at getting rid of the viruses.

What do you dislike?

Nothing--people say that they have issues with this destroying their computers, I have never seen this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try some other tools first, but it will work great overall.
