Help with winfixer.com

Hello All.

I could do with some help please !!

For the past couple of months, i am getting lots of pop-ups from the net, which is quite annoying.

Also everytime i access the internet i get directed to www.winfixer.com.. telling me i have critical errors on my PC and i need to install winfix 2005 to repair. When i cancel this, it shuts my internet explorer down....very annoying !!

Can anyone help me to erase these issues from my PC ?

Thank you in advance.

Regards
Andy

Just do a google search for winfixer. There are many pages and tools which explain how to remove it.

If you can't use IE, download firefox to access the necessary sites that explain how to remove it.

I think others would appreciate some info on exactly what you did and what you had to block.

Just saying I blocked it does not actually help anyone.

Ok No Problems

Winfixer from what i have been able to make out is one of theese programs that you don't just pick up from there site there are links to there site all over

it's is on many web sites mostly site that claim to be free and are mostly not.

I was sick and tried of cleaning up after these type of sites

So what i did and it's worked from all my machine was..

open up your router settings (if your have one)

if you have a netgear router like me there is a page that allows you to filter out sites
many routers have this function have a look.

if you have a page like this put in http:/---/www.---winfixer.---com/

that will block there webshi*e

if not you can normally do the same thing with your firewall in windows or other software firewalls

If You Need To Get Rid of this or any other web shi*e

this is the best anti adware/spyware prog for free easy to use and IT WORKs if you don't have it GET, KEEP IT, USE IT there's no excuse..
