Getting Rid of the Winlfixer Malware

By pastorde ·
I have attempted to scan and isolate and delete the virus that put this thing into my computer.

But it still tries to warn me of infection and I need to buy a license to remove the viruses.

I checked with my virus protection and was told that this is a ploy where they deposit bogus viuruses into your registry and then try to get you to buy their license to get rid of it.

Any one know how to permenantly delete these??

I have uninstalled the program but still get this prompt

I recently purchased this software and it helped to cleanup a nasty Vundo virus infection.

Some freebies that may also help are:

Spybot Search and Destroy

From another PC download and install these programs and copy the the installed folder along with VundoFix.exe to a USB Stick.

Restart the PC in Safe Mode and turn off System Restore insert the USB Stick and run Sophos.bat when it is completed run VundoFix.exe. When the PC reboots start in Safe Mode again and run Spybot.

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy 1.5.2 and install it. Update it.

Download Sophos and the latest IDE Files. Install it and extract the IDE files to the C:\SAV32CLI folder.

Copy and paste the below two lines into Notepad and save the file to the USB Stick as sophos.bat, it will scan and remove.


VundoFix is a freeware removal tool for many of the known variants of Trojan.Vundo, Trojan.Conhook and other similar infections.

Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
Click the Scan for Vundo button.
Once it's finished scanning, click the Remove Vundo button.
You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.

Also download and install CCleaner to tidy up your Registry. Let it run through until there are no errors left.

The Sophos SAV32CLI folder can be safely deleted after it is copied to USB.
