File Rescue Virus

File Rescue Virus is the most recent infection from the widely researched FakeHDD family. Many Windows users will already be familiar with such infections from this group as File Restore, Data Recovery and Smart HDD, which had been active since March of 2012. The treacherous application falls into the category of rogue defragmenters, since its fictitious interface mimics legitimate HDD repair software. Schemers have done a really good job at making their bogus application truly believable. Therefore, there is no surprise that it is used as the main instrument in the scam of fooling you into thinking that your system is in danger and that you need to follow the represented instructions and purchase fictitious program’s full version. Instead, you should delete File Rescue Virus, because this malicious program cannot bring you any benefit.

It has been researched that the fictitious defragmenter can enter the computer with bundled downloads, using social engineering scams and other clandestine channels. Nonetheless, the varying propagation methods do not have any influence on what comes next, which is your computer’s corruption. The malignant operation can be started with disabling your admin privileges, which could stop you from having File Rescue Virus removed; however, what you need to focus on is the fake application’s interface and this kind of notifications:

System message – Write Fault Error
A write command during the test has failed to complete. This may be due to a media or read/write error. The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address.

System Error. Hard disk failure detected
It’s highly recommended to run complete HDD scan to prevent loss of personal files.
Scan and repair, Cancel and restart

The Stop 0×50 message indicates that requested data was not in memory. The system generates an exception error when using a reference to an invalid system memory address.

File Rescue Virus does not have the technical potential to recognize your system’s dysfunctions or fix them, because the program has been created to generate money only. This is why, you should rush to delete the infection from your computer and protect it against malignant infections attacking again. To start File Rescue Virus removal processes, we recommend applying the fake activation key listed below. This will remove any existing dysfunctions so that you could delete the application without any disturbances.

Activation key:

Unfortunately, not many Window users will be able to succeed at manual virus removal, because this task is highly demanding and technically challenging. If inexperienced Windows users tried to delete File Rescue Virus, it is possible that they would make mistakes and the infection could regenerate or allow the running of more treacherous programs. Therefore, install automatic removal tools (e.g. SpyHunter) and have the virus deleted at once.
