Hi there!!

Was surfing the iternet earlier and got a message, I think from firefox, saying I may have hundreds of registry problems causing hard drive errors, freezes, crashes, data loss amongst others and I should get over all this by running a scan from winfixer 2006!!

I run zone alarm security suite but my pop up blocker is set to off (I never get them) so I downloaded and it installed the programme automatically. Run a scan and apparently I have 543 errors that it can fix....

After reading through a few forums I've learnt (I think) WinFixer is a bad thing!!

So if someone can tell me if it is bad? And if so, how to remove it?!

Cheers for any replies!!! :thumbsup:

Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. I bet you are wondering what HijackThis is. Well it's a program that is simply able to show others what's going on inside your computer, in terms of infection etc..

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.
