Hello,
I'm new to this site.
I'm really hoping someone can help me??

I scanned my computer using Norton (with spyware etc..) It picked up WinFixer as a security risk but doesn't tell me how to remove it!! I took a look at this website to find a program to remove it. I used Vundo fix and virtumundobegone but it tells me that there are no files detected. Am I to assume that the problem has been fixed?? To complicate matters I did a free scan using Xosoft which found 'Ibis Hunt' virus (high risk) and my up to date Norton (full package protection from all) hasn't detected it all.

I'm so rubbish when things go wrong on the computer. I'm having trouble shutting down the computer as well, which has been a problem for me over the last few months. I have tried Wincleaner but to no avail.

Can anyone help???

Many thanks for this excellent website and thanks for any help in advance.

Winfixer is not a nice thing. Check out Symantec link

http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/winfixer.html

For removing this and possibly other ones I suggest the following:

Please read this guide before actually doing the procedure
And it has all of the links for downloads you need.
