PC Intrusion Prevention Software: Quickfix Pro

"Today's fast-spreading worms and viruses can infect every vulnerable PC on the Internet within minutes.

Some worms shut themselves down long before the Anti-Virus vendors have even had a chance to analyze how they spread. Many of those leave thousands of Trojans in their wake. need look no further than the recent outbreaks of viruses and worms such as MS Blaster, Bagle, soBigF, My Doom, Netsky and Sasser. In February 2004, the W32.Bizex worm infected 50,000 machines in less than 3 hours. Yet, before Anti-Virus vendors could update Anti-Virus signatures, the worm had already stopped its spread. At this point the damage had already been done."

If you want to apply a new and innovative level of extra protection to your exploration around the jungle that today's Internet has become, Qwik-Fix Pro may have the answer you are looking for.

I got the same error message saying the program installer had fatal errors. How do I remove this from my system?
I try to inhibit it start at the same time as windows start, and deleted all the key value at the register key, but I still can not remove this program.

Qwik-Fix Pro home version seemed to have downloaded properly and was successfully installed. Or at least I thought it did. I keep recieving error messages about another Qwik-Fix running in another session. I tried to uninstall but I got another error message saying the program installer had fatal errors. How do I remove this from my system? Contacted support but still no answer.

Whether my single-user free version worked or not, I can't say, all I know it didn't uninstall without a fight - just turning it off didn't prevent the error messages indicating an associated background program running. I had to safe mode boot and remove registry entries just to get XP program removal to give me the removal button.
