WinFixer is a disabled data repair utility that nags the user to purchase it in order to fix the problems reported in its scan. WinFixer was created by WinSoftware, Ltd and is the same program as ErrorSafe and if installed on your PC, you should remove it immediately.

WinFixer is typically installed through security exploits and bundled with malware. WinFixer sponsors an affiliate program via Webmasters participating in the program are paid according to the sales generated from installation. The program will scan the computer and report errors as repairable but does not provide any details to what is at risk. It then recommends repair that requires a purchase to unlock the program. It also sets a registry key to automatically launch the program on startup. The program communicates with a statistic tracking server for the purpose of web site tracking for its affiliate program. WinFixer may be removed by using the Add/Remove Applet in the Windows Control Panel or with VIPRE Antivirus + Antispyware.
