Okay, I barely know anything about computers but I can follow instructions. I don't want to remove anything unnessasary from my comptuer, but I am stupid enough to download Winfixer that is potentially dangerous to my computer. I have Windows XP.

I don't know how to do much, so I need some first steps. ^^;

Can anyone help me? :tazz:

I need help fast!! Winfixer keeps poping up and keeps freezing Internet Explorer!!

Please Click here!, and follow the recommendations in the guide.

If you're still having trouble, We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool, Hijack This. Follow the instructions in step five of this guide, and reply here with your log.

Most of what Hijack This lists lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

We can definitely help you, but first you need to help us. The first step in this process is to apply Service Pack 1a for Windows XP. Without this update, you're wide open to re-infection, and we're both just wasting our time.

Apply the update, reboot, and post a fresh Hijack This log.

I understand that you may not have known your copy of Windows was illegitimate, but unfortunately, I will not be able to help you any further on this site. We have a very strict policy we adhere to and are only allowed to help people who have legitmate copies of Windows. If you are able to obtain a legitimate copy of Windows we will be more than happy to help.

Thank you for understanding.
