Winfix 10 not only paralyzes your desktop, but also disables the Task Manager, so that you could not disable the rogue itself. This is very malicious. If that is not enough, your virtual security could be affected by a bunch of other infections that could have been installed along with Winfix 10.

If these infections attack your PC, you will need to delete them as well.
