Is using SDFix.exe enough to tackle malware programs?

No, it isn’t. Remember SDFix only helps you get rid of certain malware programs from your PC. It is an effective program, but its range, both in terms of the service it provides and the malware it removes is limited. You should use SDFix.exe in removing the malware it claims to tackle, but should not use this tool as your primary protective tool.

To prevent malware from entering your system in the first place, it is imperative that you install reliable antimalware tools, such as Antivirus Plus and StopZilla. Also, do not forget to install a firewall on your system to monitor the traffic that enters or leaves your computer.

Additional Recommendations for SDFix.exe:

Driver Update: Some EXE errors are related to driver problems such as obsolete, outdated or incompatible drivers. A driver update tool is recommended to scan your system for corrupted and outdated drivers and to ensure that all your drivers stay up-to-date.
