Everything You Need to Know
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the FixMeStick?The FixMeStick is a computer virus removal device. Because it is an external, hardware based product, it can remove viruses that go undetected by software antivirus programs. The FixMeStick will scan your computer, identify any threats and eliminate them. FixMeStick has its own operating system built into the stick and it can scan everything on your hard drive without using the infected host operating system.
Will the FixMeStick find the specific virus that I have? What if it doesn't?Because there are so many new viruses released every day, no single antivirus company can detect them all. That's why the FixMeStick contains a built-in multi-scanner composed of three of the world's best antivirus engines. These three scanning engines make it extremely difficult for any virus to slip through. If you think the FixMeStick may have missed one, our technical support team will help get the issue resolved.
Why does it work where antivirus software does not?You can’t clean an infected computer using a program running on the infected PC, because the infection is running and will trick the program that tries to remove it. The FixMeStick runs as a separate system and runs while all other programs and infections are not (it does this by rebooting the computer). The infection is not running, and so it can’t interfere when the FixMeStick finds and removes it.
Do I need Internet to use the FixMeStick? Does it work on WiFi networks?You don't need an internet connection to use the FixMeStick, but you do need an internet connection for the FixMeStick to update itself with the latest virus definitions.
Why should I trust the FixMeStick to remove my virus?The FixMeStick is the best way to remove your virus. Independent security experts and government security agencies like the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team and The Canadian Cyber Incident Response Centre recommend cleaning an infected computer with an external bootable device, like the FixMeStick.
Can I use the FixMeStick on my tablet or smartphone?Unfortunately, the current version of the FixMeStick was not designed to support tablet use. The FixMeStick has been optimized for use laptops and desktops. As tablets become more and more advanced and receive widespread adoption, we know that there will be an increasing demand for a tablet version of the FixMeStick.
