Very secure German site [1] for download and instruction for ComboFix
The excellent software experts from our big company with more than 2000 computers clean infected computers following the instructions on [1]. They warn from downloading Combofix from other imitating (malware) sites. So I have the same opinion as robert152 and scaife.
