i'm using windows 7 ultimate x64 and finding that the usual tools i have to scan for malware are giving me errors when i try to use them. avast boot time scan only works on x86, combofix is only 32-bit, etc. is there a set of tools for removing/scanning for malware on the x64 platform?

Even if using XP or Vista (32-bit), you should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.

Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.
