Question computer software fix

Hi all,
I have just down loaded WINFIXER 2006. It was a pop up from one of our posters.

It reports 1013 system problems (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT etc)

Is it safe to let it fix problems?

Andrew,
Winfixer is a malicious program and can be removed by following the steps here.
Don't let Winfixer fix things for you.
Instead, if you use 2K or Xp, download hitmanpro and let this tool do the job.
It doesn’t work for other Windows versions.
If you need help with Dutch, just say the word.

/Hugo

Hi Net,
fortunately Norton intercepted the three or four registry additions that Winfixer activated and I blocked them.

Winfixer was running but hopefully not installed.

I have now seen your link, thanks.

Now I will go and follow it's steps.

Thanks again.
