System Restore

With all the sophistication invested into rogue security tools these days, it has become increasingly more and more difficult for even experienced users to distinguish between genuine security tools and rubbish rogue antispyware applications like System Restore. This rogue antispyware application, which emanates from the same developers as well-known rogues as Windows Restore, Windows Repair and Windows Diagnostic, was designed to fleece honest consumers out of their hard earned money while offering nothing of benefit in return.

System Restore will do its best to gain the trust of its prospective victim. Despite all of this, System Restore does not have the ability to detect, quarantine or remove any type of threat from the system, and is nothing more than a malicious threat in itself. The rogue will enter the system without the user’s acknowledgement or permission. It does so by using bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers. Of late it has also been reported that System Restore makes use of bundled security downloads obtainable from third party websites, as well as infected online flash ads.

As a first line of attack against the PC System Restore will initiate a fake system scan which will inevitably yield bogus results informing the user that his system is being attacked. This only forms part of System Restore’s attack on the system, and should be disregarded. Shortly following the fake security scan System Restore will spam the user with numerous fake security warnings informing him of the exact same. Some of the most popular fake alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:

Critical Error!
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk

Critical Error
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive

Critical Error
Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error

Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \System32\496A8300. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware.

If you study the above fake alerts carefully you will notice that it is completely nonsensical. System Restore purports that Windows cannot find hard disk space, which is impossible since the user will then be unable to run Windows at all if that had been the case.

Symptoms associated with this rogue’s infection vary from blocked Internet connections to poor system performance and the user’s inability to launch applications on the infected PC. This is done in an effort to panic the user even more, and also to block his attempts at running or downloading an application which may be able to detect and remove System Restore from the system.

Users who are not experienced in performing removals may find it difficult to get rid of System Restore without some help. Employ the removal power of a genuine security tool and eliminate System Restore from the system for good.
