Combofix is a very useful tool. But like all powerful tools it requires sufficient knowledge to use it safely and effectively. This is not the fault of the tool. The author explicitly states that it is intended for advanced users and IT professionals.

In the hands of a skilled surgeon a scalpel is a life saving tool but in other hands it is dangerous.

Qoobox.
ie the virus vault is uninstalled during Combofix removal AFTER you agree to remove it (qoobox/virus).

Combofix is a tool designed by, and for the exclusive use of IT professionals, or those explicitly trained in it's use and also in malware removal and discovery. It is not designed to be used without full training and experience
