Developers of rogue security tools and defragmenters want to confuse their victims, as is the case with the HDD Control fake system optimizer, similarly named after the legitimate system optimizer. HDD Control rogue optimizer is not genuine, and is a scam designed to fleece consumers out of their money. It only emulates the workings of a real system optimizer, but in reality is unable to live up to any of its promises.
Following suit with other well known rogue defragmenters such as Check Disk, Ultra Defragger and HDD Defragmenter, HDD Control is another evolution in the way cyber criminals go about fooling honest consumers into parting with their money for no good cause.
Making use of traditional means to distribute its virus, the HDD Control virus is spread via Trojan and malware infections bundled into bogus downloads. Once HDD Control successfully infiltrates its victim’s PC, it will inform the user his system is not performing optimally and will provide various error reports and warnings. HDD Control will inform the user that the only way to fix these errors will be to pay for a licensed version. This is blatant blackmail and for this reason, among many others the user needs to stop HDD Control permanently by having it deleted
The only way to successfully get rid of HDD Control is by making use of a powerful security tool which is able to eliminate HDD Control off the system for good. Continuously invest in up to the minute security software to protect your system against HDD Control and future similar threats.
