Hi, can I use Combofix with Windows 8.1?  If not, can you suggest a good alternative?  Thanks.

ComboFix is not currently compatible with Windows 8.1, and is not designed to be run by an end user except under supervision of a trained Helper. Rather than run it your self, you should read Instructions for posting requested logs and open a topic an the Malware Removal forum posting the requested logs. DDS, one of the requested logs, is also not currently compatible with Windows 8.1, so you should skip DDS and there will be further instructions in your topic.
