i keep getting popups for this winfixer 2005 on my computer. the first question is is this a legit program or is it just spyware? the next thing i would like help with is my computer has gotten very slow lately. it's operating at about 1/5 speed in my opinion and this started about a month ago. i have mcafee security center on my windows xp professional and i try my best to control startup items to make things run faster. can somebody please give me some advice on how to get rid of winfixer and any possible viruses or trojans my computer may have that mcafee doesnt pick up?

Hi comphater89! Welcome to G2G!

Winfixer is malware, and therefore IS NOT LEGIT. Never ever, EVER EVER EVER click on it. As for your computer being slow, that is also caused by malware.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
