Disk Doctor

Users are advised to recognize Disk Doctor for the rogue system optimizer that it truly is. Deriving from the same family as Win Defrag, Win Defragmenter and Scan Disk, this serious security risk to your PC will try everything in its power to gain your trust. Users won’t even be aware of this breach of their system’s security until the Disk Doctor infection is firmly rooted in their system and they start receiving incessant and annoying popup messages.

These fake security notifications are used as part of Disk Doctor’s attack in an effort to scare and panic its victims. Some of the more infamous fake security messages read as follows:

“Critical Error
A critical error has occurred while indexing data stored on hard drive. System restart required”

“Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file System32496A8300. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware.”

It can be easy to fall victim to Disk Doctor thanks to its seemingly user friendly and genuine looking UIs, but there is simply no middle ground here – users who value the safety of their PCs should obliterate Disk Doctor off their systems. If you attempt to manually remove Disk Doctor, you will need to kill 2523623.exe and stop xlsBuqrBdw.exe,98e22b.exe and saElAiSHfe.exe, all Disk Doctor processes which need to be ended in order to successfully dispose of Disk Doctor.

If inexperienced, it’s always highly recommended that users make use of a properly functioning and fully updated security application able to permanently exterminate Disk Doctor and similar future threats for good.
