  • Press the Fix button.
  • When finished, a log file (Fixlog.txt) pops up and is saved to the same location the tool was run from.

No Resident Protection warning!

Always have one (and no more than one!) AntiVirus program, as the resident protection is absolutely a must-have on any Windows!

Nowadays we have plenty of free AV programs. This choice is up to you, but if I may recommend something, below you'll find two of my favorite ones:

Now we remove all the tools we used (including their logs and quarantine folders), restore your settings and delete old and infected system restorepoints:

  • You can uninstall programs that you had to install (e.g. MBAM or ESET Onlinescanner) in the control panel if you so wish.
  • Download delfix.pngDelFix (by Xplode) and save it to your Desktop.
    • Close all running programs and start delfix.exe.
    • Make sure that all available options are checked.
    • Click on Run
    • DelFix should remove all our tools and delete itself afterwards. I don't need the log file.
  • If there is still something left you can delete it manually.
Closing security holes

Many infections happen via drive-by downloads that run unnoticed in the background while the user visits an infected website. To achieve this malware exploits security holes in installed software (e.g. browser or its plugins). Older versions of such software often have lots of known exploitable holes. Therefore it's very important to always keep your software up-to-date.

The following software is outdated. Make sure you remove all old versions and install the current one instead if you need the program:
