Hey all,

Been reading through the forum posts on how to remove Winfix.

Havent been able to find an answer that is specific to the problem that I have here.

I deleted Winfixer, which came in through WhenUsave which adaware scanned and deleted, but it has stuck around and been creating lovely files for me

When I try to enter a address in the address bar, I get as far as entering the first letter, and it creates a file on the desktop called wjd.winfixer. I tried googling this filename, but couldnt find anything on this.

Have gone into regedit, and found in the HKCU Microsoft, under Search Assistant in 5603 and 5604 a reference to the dll file which is mentioned in other posts, namely khhih.dll, and a key for this file as well (wjd.winfixer)

I have deleted these, but they keep on coming back. I tried searching in system32 directory for the dll files mentioned in other posts, but they dont seem to be there.


I was wondering if anyone would be able to look over my logs and hopefully help me get rid of this friendly lil program

Thanks in advance

If you suspect it's a Malware/Spyware problem. You should post it in the

Malware Removal Forum

with your HJT Log, they will help you thoroughly there.
