Can't remove
"FunWebProducts"
or
"WinFixer"
This spyware is found via the Trend Micro PC-cillin I have, but it can't remove them:
"Unable to delete the backup item. The file may be corrupted or missing."
Please help!

Seems like the following may be the easiest for you:
(quoting legalsrl from the second thread)

"if you want something nice and easy, and free for 14 days, then download Spysweeper

http://www.dee-it.com/downloads.asp

Install it, update it, scan...remove the nasties and hey presto, one nice clean machine all ready for school."

Hi,
"winfixer" is most likely a vundo infection.

Try this:
1. Please download VundoFix.exe to your desktop.
http://www.atribune.org/ccount/click.php?id=4
* Double-click VundoFix.exe to run it.
* Click the "Scan for Vundo" button.
* Once it's done scanning, click the "Remove Vundo" button.
* You will receive a prompt asking if you want to remove the files, click YES
* Once you click yes, your desktop will go blank as it starts removing Vundo.
* When completed, it will prompt that it will reboot your computer, click OK.
* Please post the contents of C:\vundofix.txt.

Note: It is possible that VundoFix encounters a file it could not remove.
In this case, VundoFix will run on reboot, simply follow the above
instructions starting from "Click the Scan for Vundo button." when
VundoFix appears at reboot.


2. If vundofix doesn't find any files, run this alternative.
 Download VirtumundoBegone from here:
http://secured2k.home.comcast.net/tools/VirtumundoBeGone.exe
 and save it to your desktop. When you have done this doubleclick on VirtumundoBeGone.exe and follow the instructions. When it has finished, reboot. If you like, post the log that is created on your desktop called VBG.TXT in your next reply. Do not worry if you see a BLUE SCREEN "Fatal Error" Message, it is normal and expected.

Well, if the above no 1 instruction is not clear,
then please do the no. 2, download and run virtumondoBegone.

Download VirtumundoBegone from here:

 and save it to your desktop. When you have done this doubleclick on VirtumundoBeGone.exe and follow the instructions. When it has finished, reboot.
