Rogue Remover lists Errorsafe as one of the programs it will remove.

Super Antispyware works with Vista.
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

  • Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
  • Click the Empty Selected button.
  • If you use Firefox browser click Firefox at the top and choose: Select All

According to the link below, Bit Defender Online Scan is not compatible with VISTA.

Not sure what you are asking. Since you have a Vista compatible version of Bit Defender, you should run a scan with it.
Only the online scanner is mentioned as not being compatible.
Let us know what Rogue Remover, etc. finds.

You may find the info in the link below useful in the future. One item mentioned is when you see the popup advertising one of these programs including Winfixer is to disconnect from the internet before attempting to close the popup. Clicking on the little red X or any other button in the popup will trigger the download of the malware.

These programs are associated with Vundo. You should also run the Vundofix tool.
