Regeasyfixer Virus

Also Known As: Regeasyfixer Trojan.Clicker
Type: Trojan
Damage level: Severe

What is Regeasyfixer?

The Regeasyfixer program is promoted as a system optimization tool and supposedly improves computer performance by removing junk files, optimizing browsers, cleaning and fixing the registry. In fact, when installed, it operates as Trojan.Clicker, a malicious program that allows criminals to commit 'click fraud'.

Regeasyfixer malware

When installed and launched, Regeasyfixer/Trojan.Clicker starts a process in Task Manager called EpizyCleanup. As mentioned, this program is used to perform click fraud, whereby a person or a program repeatedly clicks various PPC (Pay-per-click) advertisements to generate revenue. Typically, competitors (other advertisers) or publishers engage in this activity.

Advertisers commit click fraud by clicking the ads of their competitors in attempts to drive up advertising costs, thereby draining competitors' budgets and preventing their ads from appearing. Publishers commit this fraud by clicking ads displayed on their own websites to generate revenue for themselves.

Click fraud is one of the biggest problems in PPC advertising today. Actions performed by malicious programs such as Trojan.Clicker are illegal and, for this reason, we recommend that you uninstall Regeasyfixer immediately.

Unfortunately, Regeasyfixer is not the only program used to commit click fraud. Other programs that operate in a similar manner to Trojan.Clicker include Better Mechanic, Registry Mechanic, and Microsoft Cleaner. All are promoted as system optimization tools, however, they do not fix any issues and deliver fake results.

How did Regeasyfixer infiltrate my computer?

Regeasyfixer is available for download on a supposedly legitimate website, however, cyber criminals proliferate malicious programs in various ways. Typically, they use spam campaigns, untrustworthy software download sources, unofficial software updating tools, software 'cracking' tools, and trojans.

When using spam campaigns, they send emails that contain malicious attachments (or links leading to them). These emails are usually presented as official and important, however, once the attached files are opened, they download and install malicious programs.

The attachments might be Microsoft Office, PDF documents, archive files such as RAR, ZIP, executable files (like .exe), JavaScript files, and so on. Another way to proliferate malware is through Peer-to-peer networks such as torrent clients, eMule, freeware download websites, free file hosting websites, and other untrustworthy software download sources.

They present malicious files as legitimate. If people download and open them, they cause computer infections. Fake/unofficial updaters infect systems by exploiting bugs/flaws of the outdated software or by downloading (and installing) viruses rather than the updates and fixes. Software 'cracking' tools are used to activate installed software without having to pay for it.

Cyber criminals often use them to proliferate malware - rather than activating software, they download and install malware. Trojans are programs that, if installed, cause chain infections and often cause download and installation of malicious software.

How to avoid installation of malware?

Do not open attachments/files (or web links) that are presented in emails received from unknown, suspicious addresses. If the email seems irrelevant (does not concern you), the best option is to simply ignore it. Use official, trustworthy sources/channels to download software, and avoid using third party software downloaders, installers, and other such tools.

Update installed software using tools or functions provided by official developers only. Do not activate software with 'cracking' tools, since this is illegal and can lead to download/installation of malware. Have reputable anti-virus or anti-spyware software installed and keep it enabled at all times.

These programs can protect computers from infections by detecting and removing them before they can do any damage. If you believe that your computer is already infected, we recommend running a scan with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows to automatically eliminate infiltrated malware.

Click 'Options' at the top and uncheck 'Hide Empty Locations' and 'Hide Windows Entries' options

manual malware removal step 5Check the list provided by the Autoruns application and locate the malware file that you want to eliminate.

You should write down its full path and name. Note that some malware hides process names under legitimate Windows process names. At this stage, it is very important to avoid removing system files. After you locate the suspicious program you wish to remove, right click your mouse over its name and choose "Delete".

locate the malware file you want to remove

After removing the malware through the Autoruns application (this ensures that the malware will not run automatically on the next system startup), you should search for the malware name on your computer. Be sure to enable hidden files and folders before proceeding. If you find the filename of the malware, be sure to remove it.

searching for malware file on your computer

Reboot your computer in normal mode. Following these steps should remove any malware from your computer. Note that manual threat removal requires advanced computer skills. If you do not have these skills, leave malware removal to antivirus and anti-malware programs.

These steps might not work with advanced malware infections. As always it is best to prevent infection than try to remove malware later. To keep your computer safe, install the latest operating system updates and use antivirus software.

To be sure your computer is free of malware infections, we recommend scanning it with Combo Cleaner Antivirus for Windows.
