Your operating system, programs, and personal content are all files. Virus files will interfere with other files from doing what they're designed to do, especially security files, that are designed to find and remove virus files! Plug in a FixMeStick, and it will turn off your computer.
Now your computer's files are off and stored on your computer's disk. But the FixMeStick is on. It downloads the latest virus updates, and starts its built-in multi-scanner composed of three of the world's best virus detection technologies.
When the FixMeStick is finished scanning your computer's files, you click 'Clean', then unplug it. Your computer will restart, and you return to your work and play with confidence that your computer is clean from infections.
Anti-virus programs work while your PC or Mac's operating system is running. These programs protect your computer from malicious software like viruses, trojans, spyware, and malware. Protection from these malicious threats is important and anti-virus software is highly recommended.
The FixMeStick is a hardware device that runs before your PC or Mac starts to remove the infections that got past your anti-virus protection. Once malicious software gets into your computer, it can be impossible to remove it while your computer is on.
