2 W.A.Gs maybe... Try Doing the HJT Thing From Safe Mode....
in case that stops an ongoing activity designed to prevent removal. Possibly you could "rename" the entry ?
If you're comfortable in reg area, try a manual delete?
Winfixer is indeed a devil. Much can be read in search for Winfixer or Virtumundo. Funny thing, I think Roddy32 mentioned a removal tool at Winfixers' site ('tho I might be afraid to use it) As I said: Wild A** Guesses.
(NT) Thanks tobeach. I'll try the Safemode first.
The Safemode startup ploy didn't work tobeach, but...
I found the entry in System Startup in Spybot S&D, and having unchecked its box, it no longer shows on HJT.
Thanks for your input.
Basil, you might find that
CCleaner will remove some extra things for you also. It's a great program to have anyway and it is free. I run it once a day myself.
This link will tell you more about it and after you read that, just look for the download link for the latest version.
This link is a tutorial for the program.
ToBeach, you are thinking of
NewDotNet, NOT winfixer for a removal tool from the vendor's website.
(NT) I Beleive You're Correct, Roddy! Near Senior Moment!
Thanks Roddy, I will have a look at CCleaner..
Marianna, I Googled spyfixer after the horse had bolted, and also found it had been discussed in this forum before. I will try to read all the messages from now on, although the old memory isn't too good these days. Thank you for answering.
Good luck Basil and
Marianna is the resident expert here just to let you know. Also, when googling, especially for spyware problems, you have to be very careful with the results that you click on and please never fall for the sponsored ads there, most are rogue programs. If you need any more help, just post back here and one of us will help you.
(NT) Hey, Roddy, I think your memory's going too. LOL
(NT) Wasn't sure if you were the same Basil or not. :)
Roddy, I'm not sure either..
just became an official old age pensioner and celebrated by doing something you though the old Basil was incapable of. Considering I have been on this forum for 3years I should not still be making the same mistakes.
The name may also have fooled you as I had to change it along with my password because, like Donna, I was denied access to cnet a while ago and had to modify everything to get back in.
Thanks for being there to help when we do silly things. That goes for all the Mods and contributors.
I remember now that you had the
login problem the same time as Donna did Basil. We are all here for each other.
oh, oh, Roddy.....
already memory problems, though you are still "so young" ?
an official old age pensioner Wow - times flies by
