Windows Disk

Due to all the sophistication which goes into the development and design of rogue defragmenters these days, it can be easy to fall victim to an application like Windows Disk which comes across as completely original and legitimate. The problem is though that Windows Disk is actually a harmful rogue system optimizer hailing from the same family of well known rogues such as Fast Disk, Disk Optimizer, Quick Defragmenter and Check Disk. Windows Disk was designed with a very specific purpose in mind, to fleece consumers out of their hard earned money. Windows Disk will stop at nothing to ensure it realizes that goal, even if it means causing permanent and irreversible damage to its victims’ PCs.

Windows Disk does not break new ground in its distribution and infection patterns. Making use of established forms of infection, Windows Disk employs browser hijackers and fake online malware scanners to distribute its Trojan horse infections. These Trojans surreptitiously enter the system and remain dormant until Windows Disk starts its assault on the PC. This is usually started with Windows Disk revealing its presence to the user by assailing him with unbelievably annoying pop up messages which acts as inglorious and false security alerts about non existing infections on the PC. It was designed with the intention of creating panic among Windows Disk ’s victims, and is completely without merit. Some of the more notorious fake security alerts used by Windows Disk include the following:

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

Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.

These are only some of the fake security alerts employed by Windows Disk as part of its attack on the system. None of these fake security notifications are real and should not ever receive any attention. Sometimes Windows Disk will sneakily insert calls to action into their fake alerts. If acted upon, those calls to action will make it easier for Windows Disk to rip its victims off. It’s therefore imperative that users disregard these fake security alerts.
