When you consider the modus operandi of many well known rogues, it’s not difficult to believe that rogue defragmenter Quick Defragmenter derives from the same family as hotly disputed rogues Smart Defragmenter and HDD Defragmenter. Infecting its victims with the help of bogus online scanners wrought with Trojan infections and through drive-by-download sites, the fake online scanners are bound to deliver false positives of dramatic infections running rampant on the victim’s PC. These scan results should all be treated as suspect.
Making use of the same GUI as the previously mentioned rogue programs, Quick Defragmenter will not stop its attack here. After the initial attack started with unsolicited system scans, Quick Defragmenter will go on to warn the user of the devastating symptoms they can expect from these supposed infections. They will do this by assailing the user with incalculable popup messages acting as bogus security notifications. These messages reads as follows:
“Safe Mode required
As a final attack on the system, Quick Defragmenter will be the instigator of the very symptoms it warned the user to expect. It will do this in a sly manner as to not alert the user of the true intentions behind Quick Defragmenter. The rogue will then inform the user in order to get rid of the infections, stop the crippling systems and regain control of his PC he will need to purchase a license. This is the sole purpose of the Quick Defragmenter scam. Once the user pays for this rogue, he will receive nothing but a worthless shell which is unable to offer any protection against rogue or other harmful threats.
In order to limit the damage posed to the system, it’s imperative that swift action be taken to permanently get rid of Quick Defragmenter. Make use of the removal power of an updated security application able to delete Quick Defragmenter off the PC for good.
