I am trying to help a friend remove Winfixer 2005 pop-ups from his computer. He doesn't know how it got on the computer, but there is a round white ball in his tool tray and a desktop icon. I have removed UWFX5Netinstaller.exe from Downloaded programs/files. I went into the registry and found Winfixer 2005 under software and removed that, but when I re-booted it re-appeared. After three tries I gave up. HELP!! This is the pits.

Create a directory on your hardrive to save HijackThis.exe. A directory like c:\hijackthis. If you do not do this, you will not be able to use the backup/restore features.

Download HijackThis from:

HijackThis Download Site

Save this file into the directory you made previously and then run the program named hijackthis.exe. When the program opens click on the Config button, then click on the Misc Tools button, and click on the Check for update online button. When it completes checking/applying updates press the back button.

Now click on the Scan button and when it is finished click on the Save Log button. A Notepad window will open with the contents of this log. Click on Edit then click on Select all. Then click on Edit and then Click on Copy.

Create a reply to this post here and right click in message area and select paste to paste the log into the post.
