Data Recovery is a rogue defragmenter which comes forth with a notorious background. It hails from a dangerous family of rogues known as the FakeHDD Family of rogues. These rogues are very adept at stealing money from unsuspecting computer users worldwide. Data Recovery can scare you into believing that your computer is being overrun with errors and that you must make use of Data Recovery to fix these threats. Unfortunately if you follow the instructions given by the rogue, you will only lose your money.
When the rogue urges you to pay for the full version of the program, you are required to fill in the purchase form, and there you must disclose your name, address, credit card number, expiration date, and the CVV2 code. With this information at hand, the people who have created the rogue will be able to perform a lot of illegal operations little by little draining your financial funds. If you happen to have exposed your sensitive information already, contact your bank and inform them about the possible illegal access to your bank account.
Once the rogue manages to ingrain itself in the system, it will edit registry entries so as to allow itself to be launched each time the user logs on to Windows. It will then proceed to initiate a fake system scan which will inform the user that his PC is being overrun with serious errors.
It will shortly after initiating the fake scan start spamming you with numerous fake system messages, informing you of the same thing:
If you look at the above fake alerts, it is obvious to see that you are dealing with a rogue application. This can be seen by Data Recovery warning you that the Hard Drive is missing. This simply cannot be, as if this was the case then you would not be able to run the PC in the first place.
As a further attack against the PC, it will block the user’s access to the Internet and will not allow the user to launch other applications on the system. This is done to further panic and annoy the user, but also to prevent him from running or downloading an application which may be able to detect and remove Data Recovery from the system. Each time the user attempts to launch an application, he will be presented with the following error messages:
Hard Drive Failure
Acquire a good security tool that will terminate Data Recovery for you automatically. Do not hesitate when it comes to dealing with this rogue, because if you allow it stay on your computer for a longer period of time, your system will definitely crash for good.
