My little girl had this program called Winfixer 2005 download onto her computer. I fought with this for the better part of the week till I finally removed it.
Can anyone here give me so info on this program?

According to BC techs, WinFixer 2005 is spyware/adware - a parasite.

See info at this link for more information.

Are you sure you've removed it all?

I'm going to review the link you provided and I'll let you know. I spend alot of time removing and tinkering with my registry and it has not popup up in 3 or 4 weeks. If it wasn't for Katrina and Rita spanking us down here I would have investigated it sooner. I just slowed down long enough to remember the problem I had.
