Who is also testing freefixer?
« on: February 24, 2007, 10:45:57 PM »
Hi anti malware fighters,

From the makers of kephyr freefixer, a program in the test phase to remove adware, spyware, bad BHO's etc. Who is also testing this. Read the manual here:

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

A little early in the version life cycle, 0.16 is virtually alpha, caution is advised. Not sure if the download size is to be believed at softpedia either ;D It is only 641KB at ;D

This seems a very small footprint for a program such as this.
