Win Defrag

Win Defrag is a rogue defragmenter designed with the express purpose of fleecing unsuspecting consumers out of their money while leaving them with nothing in return but an empty shell. Deriving from the same family of rogues as Win HDD, Ultra Defragger and HDD Control, this in itself is enough reason why you would want to completely destroy Win Defrag.

Win Defrag is spread with the help of sneaky Trojan infections which bundles itself to phony security downloads and suspect email. Once the Win Defrag takes root in your PC, you will soon receive many different fake security alerts informing you of various errors on your PC. The bogus security alerts will be used as a way of scaring and intimidating users into paying for Win Defrag products.

Win Defrag will as a further attack on the system instigate the very symptoms it warned the user against. This will be done in an effort to make the system completely unusable, in effect forcing the user to buy the licensed version of Win Defrag to “fix” the various errors.

Users are urged never to pay for any Win Defrag products, and to accept all correspondence received from Win Defrag as highly suspect. Rather get rid of Win Defrag than believe what it has to say, and do not become its next victim. Keep your security software fully updated in an effort to protect your system against future threats and infections.
