FreeFixer is a removal tool which will help you to delete potentially unwanted software, such as spyware, adware, trojans, viruses and rootkits. FreeFixer works by scanning a number of locations where unwanted software has a known record of appearing or leaving traces. The scan locations include the programs that starts when you reboot your computer, the programs that run on your computer, your browser plug-ins, your home page settings, etc. FreeFixer does not know which the bad files and settings are, so the scan result will contain many items you want to keep and perhaps some that you want to delete. It is up to you to decide. Please be careful! If you remove a legitimate file you may damage your computer. To assist you when determining if anything should be removed you can find additional information at FreeFixer's web site for the items in the scan result. You can for example see what other users chose to do in the same situation.
