Attached File  hijackthis_logfile.txt   9.86KB   70 downloadsFirst of all, I'm no computer genius. I know simple basics, that's all. Please explain in terms a child could understand. lol.

A while ago a pop up for Win Fixer 2005 popped up while my husband was on the computer. He never fully reads what they are and just click on them to get rid of them. Ever since, this thing keeps coming up everyday. It keeps saying it is installing, but never actually gets anywhere. It's always on 0%. I can't find it in my control panel to remove it. I did a search of my computer for any file matching "winfixer 2005" and deleted all that came up, but it is still there.

I keep seeing people on here with hijack logs and don't know what that is or how I would give you mine. If you could please explain to me how to get rid of this winfixer it would be greatly appreciated. I think it's making my computer run slower.


Also, I don't know how you respond to these topics, but if you could email it to me that would be great.
