We have just published the present post in order to describe to you the elimination process of Windows Vista Fix scam. We are really sorry if your computer got infected with Windows Vista Fix rogueware. The only purpose of Windows Vista Fix is to push you into purchasing its so-called full version, which is as helpless as the trial one.
Windows Vista Fix is known to hide your desktop, causing the following problems:
- Making all your files, icons, folders, programs in the Start menu and the desktop entirely hidden (missing)
- Disturbing you with permanent messages about all kinds of problems with your computer, such as HDD missing, driver problems and so on
- Unauthorized startup with every Windows boot, being accompanied with fake system scan and further fake problem report
- Trying to convince you to pay for its full version as a supposed remedy for healing all the above-mentioned problems
- Making your computer work much slower
Then Windows Vista Fix would suggest you to purchase its so-called full version to have the above-mentioned errors dealt with. Don’t forget that the above-mentioned problems are all caused by Windows Vista Fix itself. If you purchase it you are just wasting your hard earned money, because Windows Vista Fix will not be able to fix real errors. You should now get rid of Windows Vista Fix virus to prevent further damage of your system. Windows Vista Fix removal is similar to that of Windows XP Repair and Windows 7 Repair.
