Desktop Hijack Fix Review

Felix Cheng
Fixes damage caused to your desktop by nasty spyware and malware
A review of Desktop Hijack Fix by Felix Cheng

A lot of users typically use their computer to surf and web and if you're even reading this site, to download software. Unfortunately, many users become victims of malware attacks and their system may be modified, even after a cleanup.

Sometimes a simple antivirus program and a reboot just doesn't repair the state a malicious program has left your system in.

What Desktop Hijack Fix does is provide users with an easier way to restore their desktop and Windows settings to a more usable state.

Desktop Hijack Fix also allows you to create restore points on your system and incase something does happen at a later point or you've been the victim of something which modifies your system, you can easily restore your PC to the way it was when the restore point was created.

  • Restores Windows desktop and wallpaper back to original settings
