Good Evening! I am new to the board--just found it today. Somehow (my boyfriend used the PC) got Winfixer on my PC. I have a firewall (Mcafee). I have been trying to read the posts to figure out what I need to do, but I am lost. The first thing I have noticed is everyone posting a Hijacker log--I don't even know what this is but I am good at following directions. Can someone PLEASE help me/instruct me how to get this annoyance from my PC.

Hi and welcome snuggs03

Please go Here and unzip the newest version of HJT into a new dedicated folder,
Create a folder on the C: drive called C:\HJT.
You can do this by going to My Computer (Windows key+e) then double click on C: then right click and select New then Folder and name it hjt. Unzip HijackThis into this folder. Launch Hijack This, then press Scan, and press Save Log
This will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.
Most things are harmless and needed so don't make any changes.
post a log here please.
