Windows Fix Disk
Windows Fix Disk is a new addition to the family of fake defragmenters, which consists of such rogues as Windows Restore, Windows Repair, Windows Recovery and the like. It is easy to see that all of these fake programs come from the same nest, because they have the same user interface. Just like its predecessors Windows Fix Disk pretends to be a useful program, while in fact it only damages your machine, consequently aiming at your money.
The nature of Windows Fix Disk is that it can easily enter your computer without your knowledge or consent. One of the popular methods to redistribute the rogue is spam. For example, it can redirect you to a fraudulent site which says “video codec required” for you to play some sort of video, while in fact you would be downloading not a codec, but the installer file for Windows Fix Disk. Such schemes are very frequent, and you can never know whether you are infected or not already, so it is highly recommended to check your computer with the suggested scanner.
When Windows Fix Disk is installed in your computer it performs a fake system scan just like any other rogue, “searching” for any possible errors. It is sure to find some at once, claiming that a big portion of your HDD space is unreadable. This condition is indicated as a Critical Error. This kind of claim is rather ridiculous, because if there were critical errors in your hard drive, you wouldn’t be able to operate your computer at all. It proves that this rogue if a malicious program, which should not be taken as the real thing. So all the messages received from Windows Fix Disk should be ignored as well, such as:
Windows Diagnostic Diagnostics
Windows Fix Disk will try to stay in your computer for as long as possible, because the longer it is there, the bigger possibility it has to rip you off. Instead of actually spending your money on this worthless program, you need to use this code to “activate” it:
If you do so, it will help you a lot in removing the program, because this is exactly what you must do if you are infected by this rogue. It is a malicious software application which will continuously strive to make easy money, and harm your computer, so you need to terminate Windows Fix Disk immediately, before it caused ultimate system crash.
