I was wondering if anyone can help. My (Japanese) mother in law's computer is infected with WINFIXER 2005. I am visiting her in Japan and I am trying to help her fix it before I fly back to the USA.
Taking the advice in the get started section, I completed all the required steps (deleted temp files, used SpyBot, installed firewall, and ran Stinger). I also downloaded and unzipped "Hijack This" but it won`t run. It says that it is missing a DLL file (MSVBVM60.DLL)?
I looked at the fixes in the reading room section, but many of the required anti-malware programs sugested to remove winfixer 2005 will not run on Windows 98.
I am feeling hopeless, as I don't see a way to proceed at this point. Any help is greatly appreciated.
