Error Fix loads plenty of annoying alerts. They are all fabricated in order to trick people into purchasing ErrorFix. The program will never function normally since it‘s a malware designed to milk money. Do not trust ErrorFix and remove it with no doubt.

ErrorFix presents itself as a registry repair tool. ErrorFix imitates computer scan and it also displays commercial pop-ups. It may slow a machine down and it may hijack your web browser.

I have Windows XP Professional on 2 HP machines and Windows7 on a Dell. ErrorFix works very well on all three helping to keep my systems clean. I also have Security Essentials and CC Cleaner installed on all 3 - between the 3 programs my computers are kept in tip top shape and I don't have problems with any of them. Now I have "Should I Remove It" which has helped me tremendously in removing unwanted items that installed on my XP computer when the program "Gimp" was installed. Thank you - it is a very good program.
