Disk Helper

Despite the best efforts of the online security industry, many PC owners are still falling prey to dishonest and fake system optimizing software, as is the case with Disk Helper. Although a seemingly legitimate and user friendly defragmenter, Disk Helper is nothing but a blatant clone of various well known parasites including Good Memory, Disk OK and Fast Disk. This alone will be enough to convince most PC owners who value their systems’ health to remove Disk Helper from their PCs as soon as possible.

This rogue is delivered into the PC owner’s system without his knowledge. Disk Helper does this by making use of various harmful Trojans which are distributed via fake online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers. Once the user is forcefully redirected to the browser hijacking domain, his system and browser vulnerabilities are instantly exploited in an effort to surreptitiously deliver the Disk Helper Trojan to his system.

Disk Helper will do everything in its power to ensure that the user accepts it as a genuinely helpful system optimizing application. It will do this by making use of genuine looking security notifications, and by offering solutions to falsely reported error messages. These fake notifications will also be the first inkling the user will have about Disk Helper being on his system. Some of the more notorious fake security alerts received from Disk Helper to be on the lookout for include the following:

"Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file [random name]. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware."

"Critical Error
RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure."

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

"Requested registry access is not allowed. Registry defragmentation required
Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
32% of HDD space is unreadable
Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
GPU RAM temperature is critically high. Urgent RAM memory optimization is required to prevent system crash
Drive C initializing error
Ram Temperature is 83 C. Optimization is required for normal operation.
Hard drive doesn’t respond to system commands
Data Safety Problem. System integrity is at risk.
Registry Error – Critical Error"

"Windows detected a hard drive problem.
A hard drive error occurred while starting the application."

Obviously none of these fake security notifications can be accepted as truthful, and users are urged to treat all correspondence received from Disk Helper as extremely suspect. Do not fall for the trickery employed by this insidious rogue. Defend your PC against certain destruction by making use of a powerful security tool which will not only detect but also exterminate Disk Helper from the system for good.
