WinFixer is a dangerous malware, but as most malwares these days it pretends to be a useful tool. It’s not a new threat, but it keeps spreading wide because of its advertising way.

WinFixer is one of those malicious programs that show alert balloon in a system tray near clock and pretend to be Microsoft updates. Once a computer user thinks he needs to download or even buy super optimizing tool to fix his Windows, he actually pays for more malware on a computer! Beware of being tricked this way; if a message in the alert says you need to download Windows updates, check if what you download is from Microsoft website.

If you already are in this trap and receive reports that various threats were detected to your computer and only full version of WinFixer can remove those, don’t worry. The only infection is actually the messages themselves. Here’s a way to remove winfixer.
