I recieved some help on this a couple of weeks ago when I was trying to get winfixer off my fathers computer...now I've got the stupid thing. I'm wondering....the program seems to have installed itself (With one of my kids help) and when I got to the computer today I see it has finished running a scan on my computer. I tried to use its uninstall program and of course I get taken to a website where they want mt to fill out a questionarre and to reboot before I can uninstall. Should I assume they want me to reboot so they can finish the installation of the program? To register dll's and such? Is there a way to get rid of this pest without 300 steps? Is this program actually a legitimate scanner? Please!!!! I've got work to do and I don't have weeks to get rid of this [bleep] thing.
Thanks

Hi pdough and welcome to GeeksToGo! My name is Excal and I will be helping you.

Winfixer is a rogue system cleaner and its not to be trusted. I would suggest that you post me a HiJackthis log, as it usually is not to hard to get rid of.


Thanks,

:tazz:
