Editors' Review

FreeFixer can fix problems other tools can't touch, but it can "fix" your system good and proper, if you don't know what you're doing. This powerful tool removes stuff. It can, and will, remove things your PC needs if you tell it to, so knowledge is key. Unless you're sure something needs to go, don't delete it. Instead, use the link to get more information online. FreeFixer automatically whitelists many safe items on its servers, but it can't tell a good program from a bad one, if it's not in the online database: That's your job. FreeFixer is freeware suitable for Windows 2000 to 8, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. We ran it in 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

)

Installing FreeFixer involves configuring an optional daily background scan. FreeFixer's small, text-heavy user interface actually looks more like a pop-up than a program when you first run it. But it's actually a sensible setup, and the scan results page is impressive. What FreeFixer does is scan your system and list every program, process, service, module, toolbar, browser helper object, and just about anything else on your PC that can be identified and listed by category. Check boxes let you select items for FreeFixer to Repair or Delete, or you can click "More Info." FreeFixer's initial scan found (and logged) a lot of stuff on our computer, but no serious threats. But we selected an IE toolbar to toss, just to see FreeFixer in action. We clicked "Fix," and FreeFixer removed the item and rebooted our system. A subsequent scan showed that FreeFixer had showed the toolbar the door. FreeFixer has a few extras, too, such as its File Nuker, which zaps unwanted files at reboot, and Windows System File Checker, which scans protected files and restores any corrupted files with clean versions.

Used with care, FreeFixer is a great addition to your regular malware, spyware, and system maintenance toolkit. Used carelessly, it can ruin your day as you scramble to troubleshoot the problems you caused in deleting the wrong thing.

"This worked for me."

February 24, 2014  |  By snlcol

 |  Version: FreeFixer 1.09

Pros

It found the files I was looking for.

Cons

It found a lot of files I needed to operate the computer.

Summary

I doubled checked (online) all the files I had this program delete to be sure they were malware. I did not delete anything I did not understand. I am not an expert in this, but I knew a little about the virus I had(passshow) and what the names of the files would be. Like I said, I double checked everything before I scheduled to delete. I did not lose anything and my virus is gone. I'm happy.

"You have to decide what to keep and what to delete."

February 02, 2010  |  By xmasfrk

 |  Version: FreeFixer 0.48

Pros

Freefixer tells you everything that is running on your computer.It is very informative and has a website that gives you more info about the program.It als keeps track of other users decisions of what they did with the programs that freefixer found.

Cons

The amount of programs/files it finds is overwhelming for you to look up and decide what to do with.Then most of the time everyone just keeps it.

Summary

You only have one option with what freefixer finds running on your computer.which is to keep or delete.It also take time to look up everything it finds to decide what you want to do with it.This ones not for me.

"It was real good until I got a 64-bit PC."

November 10, 2009  |  By txcounselor62

 |  Version: FreeFixer 0.48

Pros

I liked it for the way it kept my PC running and controlled the start-up programs.

Cons

Now, with a 64-bit PC I am unable to use it due to it not being compatible with the 64-bit.

"Amazing software."

May 13, 2008  |  By Tozzano

Pros

A great tool. Blazingly fast. Clean install/uninstall. Much like hijack-this but much nicer reporting and interface.

Cons

Make sure you check for the latest version as it's still under development.
