FreeFixer Publisher's description
Anti-hijack tool aimed to remove spyware, adware, rootkits, trojans, etc.
FreeFixer is an antispyware program assisting you to remove potentially unwanted software, such as rootkits, spyware, adware, trojans and viruses. FreeFixer scans locations on your system where malware has a documented record of appearing or leaving traces. The scan locations include your home page settings, the processes running on your computer, the programs that starts when you reboot your computer, the HOSTS file, your Internet Explorer browser plug-ins, etc. FreeFixer will also try to detect rootkits - programs that are using hiding techniques. FreeFixer does not 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, so it's up to you to decide. Please be careful, if you delete a legitimate file or setting you may damage your computer. 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.
