It’s a fact that many consumers are still naive enough to trust the product behind an exaggerated marketing campaign as being safe with due diligence. It is exactly this type of misplaced trust which allows for rogue software such as the Win Scanner rogue system optimizer to flourish under. Win Scanner is the newest rogue system optimizer from the long line of rogue optimizers emanating from the same family as Disk Repair, Defragmenter and HDD Tools. This alone is reason enough why you’ll want to destroy Win Scanner if discovered to be lurking around on your PC, but if you’re not convinced yet, keep reading.
Do not be fooled by its seemingly legitimate looking design and user interfaces, Win Scanner is not a legitimate application and will deliver on none of its over embellished promises. Win Scanner will put a lot of effort into trying to make its victim believe that its software is beneficial and that it is a legitimate application. Do not fall victim for this tomfoolery, and consider all the evidence to the contrary.

Win Scanner will blame all the erratic system behavior on the reported bogus infections, and users are warned not to believe any of the following messages:
“New threads were found
“Windows – No Disk
As a further attack on the system, and in an effort to prevent the user from running a security application which will remove Win Scanner from the system, Win Scanner will prevent the user from running any program on the system. It will display the following infuriating message every time the user attempts to launch a program:
“Windows detected a hard drive problem.

This is the only way they will be able to permanently get rid of Win Scanner and take control back of their systems.
