It wasn't detected as a virus or even malware, it was detected as a possibly unwanted program which means you decide whether or not you want to keep it.

This is not a virus or Trojan. PUPs do not "infect" systems. They may be installed by a user individually or possibly as a part of a software package (in a bundle, for example).

Check if it's listed in your Prgoram list in Control Panel.

Also open SecurityCenter > Navigation > Quarantined and Trusted Items and look there for it, you should see it there and you can either accept it or delete it.

Re: Help for remove HTool-PWSFFox From my computer

Ok i will check, the main problem was mc cafee can't delete it, and ask me to it by myself all the time.

I will check, i am sure its because of me, i have install a patch for a game yesterday, i think he wasn't legit, and i got this problem.

Did it dangerous this thing i have ? because mc cafee block him all the time, this thing try to do bad thing i guess.

edit : No i see nothing to uninstall.

The only thing i know is today, mc cafee blocked it again ( this thing try to use Cmd thing ) then copy a weird thing into my user.

But its seem stinger can delete it, but i don't know how he can come back.

So now it's gone?    In case you are worried run Malwarebytes Free, linked in the last link in my signature below.

If it asks you to accept a trial, say no, otherwise it will install the Pro version.

I don't think it is dangerous and I wouldn't worry yourself about it.

If you really want to set your mind at rest download Hijackthis and post its log on one of the forums I have mentioned in last link in my signature, near the bottom.
