Editor: FreeFixer is a general purpose Antispyware tool that will assist you when deleting potentially unwanted software, such as rootkits, adware, trojans, spyware and viruses. FreeFixer scans Locations where unwanted software has a record of appearing or leaving traces. The scan locations include your homepage settings, the programs that starts when you reboot your computer, the HOSTS file, the processes running on your computer, your browser plug-ins, etc. FreeFixer will also try to Detect programs that are using various hiding techniques.
FreeFixer doesn't know which the unwanted files and settings are, so the scan result will most likely contain many items you want to keep and perhaps a few that you prefer to delete. It's up to you to decide, but please be careful! If you remove a legitimate file you may damage your machine. To help you decide if anything should be deleted you can find information at FreeFixer's web site for the items in the scan result. For example, you can see what other FreeFixer users chose to do in the same situation.
