Being a victim of a malware attack is very common. Although an antivirus can remove all malware, spyware, etc., it may not be able to detect and repair the various types of system file corruption generated during the attack. SmartFix is a free Windows software that allows you to troubleshoot and resolve common system issues so that you can start using your normal computer normally after being attacked by malware.
Recover a Windows computer after a malware attack
SmartFix is designed to do only three tasks. You can use it when your computer is attacked and after removing malware, adware, spyware, etc., with the help of an antivirus. There are three options included in this software, and they are-

If you can not use the internet after recovering from an attack, you should use this option. It will perform a complete recovery of the network settings so that you can start using the Internet on your personal computer.
The third option (Launch) allows you to run different programs. You can download and run AdwCleaner, DR. Web CureIt, the ESET Online scanner, the removal of Kaspersky Virus, etc., if you have a valid Internet connection.
