I have nod32 antivirus system 2.70 with v2602 signatures file in my system.
My internet explorer (IE) home page was overide by winfixer virus to: at blank, i was not able to change it back.
I have check the nod32 ThreatSense Updates database, Win32/winfixer was in the v1.1688 signatures file.

How do i set my nod32 to detect it and remove it, if possible maximum protection.

My current nod32 setting:
AMON setup, actions, clean automatically & move newly infected file to Quarantine.

IMON setup, HTTP, actions, when a treat from internet is found, automatically deny download

Follow the the instructions for using Vundofix in BC's self-help tutorial "How To Remove Vundo/Winfixer Infection".

Then download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free in "Safe Mode".
