FreeFixer 1.17

FreeFixer is an anti-spyware program helping you to remove potentially unwanted software, such as spyware, rootkits, adware, trojans and viruses. FreeFixer will scan locations on your computer where unwanted software has a documented 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 browser 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 files and settings 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 or setting you may damage your machine. To help you decide if anything should be deleted you can find additional information at FreeFixer's web site for the items in the scan result. For example, you can see what other FreeFixer users did in the same situation.
