Default Using SDFix

Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop.
  • Run the SDFix.exe by double clicking on it.
  • Allow it to install into the default location which is normally c:\SDFix
  • Now please reboot your computer into Safe Mode (see this if you don't know how: Starting your computer in Safe mode )
  • When you have booted into safe mode, open the C:\SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
  • Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
  • It will remove any Trojan Services or Registry entries found and then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
  • Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
  • When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
  • Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt.
  • Attach the Report.txt file to your next message.

Notes for possible problems running SDFix:
  • If this error message is displayed when running SDFix:
The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator. Press any key to continue . . .
Please goto Start Menu > Run > then copy and paste the following line:
%systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\swreg IMPORT %systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\Enable_Command_Prompt.reg
Press OK then run SDFix again
  • If the Command Prompt window flashes on then off again on XP or Windows2000
Please goto Start Menu > Run > then copy and paste the following line:
%systemdrive%\SDFix\apps\FixPath.exe /Q
Reboot and then run SDFix again
  • If SDFix still doesnt run, check the %comspec% variable
Goto Start Menu > Right click My Computer > click properties > click Advanced Click Environment Variables and check that the ComSpec variable points to cmd.exe %SystemRoot%\system32\cmd.exe
  • SDFix uses ERUNT to create a registry backup in this location: %SystemRoot%\ERUNT\SDFix\
