HDrive Sweeper - How to remove?


HDrive Sweeper (a.k.a HDrive Sweeper Pro) is a new rogue registry cleaner and performance enhancer – a parasite, which uses disinformation to trick the user into purchasing it’s "licensed version". HDrive Sweeper usually enters the system by using trojans, such as Zlob or Vundo, which disguise themselves as Video ActiveX codecs.

Once inside and active, HDrive Sweeper will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, supposedly to inform him of errors found in the Windows registry, as well as unnecessary files and other things. While pretty much every system has registry errors, HDrive Sweeper is neither the program to detect nor remove them. In order to further mislead the user, HDrive Sweeper will perform fake registry scans, which produce exaggerated results.

hdrivesweeper.com, the home of this parasite, is no different than any other rogue website: there is no useful information and no contact details.

HDrive Sweeper is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block hdrivesweeper.com and hdrivesweeperpro.com using your HOSTS file.
