    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Winantivirus is a bogus antivirus programme. It actually infects your computer with malware. Don`t click on any popups it gives you and look in add remove programme in your control panel. Uninstall anything to do with Winantivirus(if there).

    Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log as an attachment into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Is winantivirus the same as WinFixer? I've seen WinFixer b4 and I advise 2 NEVER use it and to uninstall it as soon as possible.
