HDD Scan is a rogue defragmenter application. Also referred to as HDDScan, this application should be removed and not encouraged! HDD Scan hails from the same defragmenters family as Win Defrag, Win HDD. As is quite common with these type rogue defragmenter programs, HDD Scan enters into a computer system via Trojan infections, spam emails and through its affiliated websites. What HDD Scan does is it creates a vast amount of fake pop-up alert messages, combined with fake security system scans – all of which are utilized to ensure the user is coerced into thinking their system is infected terribly – and the only solution is to purchase the full version of HDD Scan. This is not fact! Do not fall for this tactic of persuasion, as HDD Scan will only cause damage to any system it has infiltrated. Should you suspect your system is infected with HDD Scan, remove it ASAP!
