Hello:

I have a Dell P.C.with windows XP. About a month ago, a pop-up came up indicating it was from microsoft winfixer and that there were problems with my computer which it could fix. I went ahead and went through the process. Now the computer is slow, there are problems logging onto simple programs such as Word and the computer locks up. What can I do. I did some research and found out this is a virus ?? Is this true and how could I fix it.

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go.

Unfortunately, you are correct. Winfixer is more than a virus, it is a parasite, and a nasty one at that. :tazz:

Please read and follow all the direction at the following address:

If you're still infected after following all the directions (which you probably will be since Winfixer is very persistant), please start a new topic in the Malware Removal Forum.

Hope all goes well for you.
