Je vous empris!

Give it 24 hours to be sure, but it looks promising. The difficulty with this infection is that it is invisible to the eye. I think I might recommend this fix as a matter of course, combined with what I can see. It's looking more like a pandemic just like the Winfixer.

GOSH - it's been more than 12 hours and I haven't had to restart! *Crosses her fingers as she says this*

Could it possibly be fixed? I'll post tomorrow (unless I have to sooner than that) to let you know. Time will tell, I just wanted to give you an update. I am agog :tazz:

Merci beaucoup, Sherry

PS: Just to clarify - so this aproposfix is something you'll want me to do again? S.

Hello again Sherry

The rootkit should be gone and should not return unless you get a reinfection. I don't think we'll need it again, but after today (53 emails from GTG) I think I will include it in every fix from now on.
