Please can you tell me what FULL-DISKfighter.lnk is. I have found it on my sons computer, and after installing Norton I ran a scan and it didn't detect it as a virus, but I have never heard of it. Please can you enlighten this poor technophobe.
Thanks

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. :)

In answer to your query, FULL-DISKfighter.lnk relates to a short-cut link to a web-page for a software download(that might be in the favourites folder of a browser for example). Though personally I would not advise the use of that software(plus the site in question is somewhat dubious to say the least) and TFC - Temp File Cleaner would be the better option.

Do you require any actual Malware Removal assistance with your son's computer ?

I have been finding lots of things on this computer. Somehow his Norton was turned off so he was wide open to anything. Still trying to get rid of PC Performer? and a couple of others that come on automatically on start up. Ho-hum, this is kids for you. Thank you so much for this advice :)

Hi. :)

Thank you so much for this advice :)

You're welcome!

I have been finding lots of things on this computer. Somehow his Norton was turned off so he was wide open to anything. Still trying to get rid of PC Performer? and a couple of others that come on automatically on start up.

If you would like my assistance carry out the following please...

Scan with Farbar Recovery Scan Tool:

Please download and save Farbar Recovery Scan Tool 64-Bit to the desktop.

Note: If the above version of the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool turns out not to be compatible, merely delete that version and download use this one instead: Farbar Recovery Scan Tool 32-Bit

  • Right-click on FRST64.exe(FRST.exe) and select Run as Administrator(if using XP merely double-click on FRST) to start FRST >> >> follow the prompt/click on Yes
  • Under Optional Scan ensure both Drivers MD5 and Addition.txt are selected.
  • Now click on the Scan button/radio tab >> at the Scan completed prompt click on OK
  • At the next prompt denoting Addition.txt is saved in the same location FRST tool is run >> click on OK
  • There will now be two logs on the desktop, Addition.txt and FRST.txt. Post the contents of both in your next reply.
