    Here it is, all the so-called "software" from same company that makes Winfixer (not only scammers and liars, but also link spammers and crooks): http://www.softpedia.com/progMoreBy/Publisher-WinSoftware.html (for anybody who didn't hear about this: do NOT download: it is spyware).

    Note also the scam banner, which takes you where? You guessed it, winfixer.com.

    I don't click on banners anyway, so that's wasted on me. Also none of those WinSoftware products have a high rating so a no-go in my book.

    Notice they're all seperatly priced tagged..

    If you bought them all.. that will cost you $210 + tax, oh and $1,507 for a computer repair technition..


    that's abit out of my range.

    But are all of these tools spyware/malware free? Because if they ain´t, Softpedia really can´t be trusted. Also, I have noticed that if you browse their site in freeware mode the page layout often gets screwed up, this never happens in "shareware mode", what´s up with this? o_O

    Winfixer, malware-free? :rolleyes: It's a malware itself.
