Version: 1.16FreeFixer is an antispyware tool that will assist you removing potentially unwanted software, such as spyware, rootkits, adware, trojans and viruses.
Operating System: Windows
FreeFixer scans locations on your machine where unwanted software has a record of appearing or leaving traces.
The scan locations include your home page settings, the programs that starts when you reboot your computer, the processes running on your computer, the HOSTS file, your Internet Explorer plug-ins, etc.
FreeFixer will also try to detect rootkits - programs that are using various hiding techniques.
FreeFixer doesn't know which the unwanted settings and files 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, please be careful! If you delete 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 users chose to do in the same situation.
