Winfix 10

Winfix 10 Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

The Winfix 10 program is advertised on low-quality software distribution platforms as a powerful system optimizer that can revive old systems and add up to five more years to your machine's lifespan. Computer users that own an old computer and wish to speed up their current PCs may be interested in installing the Winfix 10 program and give it a try. However, you should not install the Winfix 10 software because it is classified as a rogue program that may use deceptive tactics to make you purchase an over-priced license. The Winfix 10 rogueware may be encountered under the names of Winfix 07 and Winfix 8.1, which may appear as custom versions of Winfix for Windows 7 and 8. The Winfix 10 rogue system optimizer is similar to Disk Optimizer and Windows Security & Control and may use loud sound alerts and an extensive list of errors colored in red to incite distress in users.

Additionally, the Winfix 10 rogueware may run during the system boot-up and decrease your CPU performance to simulate a critical state of your OS deliberately. The main window of the Winfix 10 rogue program may include marketing offers from uncertified developers and welcome users to install unofficial updates for their USB ports, LAN, sound and video cards. Computer experts note that the Winfix 10 rogueware may attempt to delete DLL files that are integral to your system stability to corner you into buying a license for $80. Computers that are infected with the Winfix 10 rogueware may have a diminished lifespan and have their hard disks fragmented to a point where opening simple TXT files become a challenge. Security researchers recommend users to download and install a trusted anti-malware utility that can use advanced deletion algorithms to remove all traces of the Winfix 10 software and search for a safe system optimizer online.
