How to remove SafeHardDrive?
What is SafeHardDrive?
SafeHardDrive is a rogue system optimization tool that masquerades as a legitimate program, but is in fact designed to scam people out of their money. Its tool of trade is the fake scans that show imaginary threats in order to persuade you into purchasing its "licensed" version. By using misleading advertising techniques, SafeHardDrive tricks you into downloading and installing it, which actually dumps your system security down the gutter.
After installation, SafeHardDrive will supposedly scan your system for errors, but will "optimize" them only after you pay its creators $50. If you choose to buy this parasite, a known rogue tactic will follow: your payment will be processed via a rogue payment system, which means your credit card info will be up fr grabs in seconds after you click the Buy Now button. Although SafeHardDrive’s homepage looks more or less presentable, do not be fooled by its slick design and the lack of grammatical errors in the website (a known plague of other rogues): SafeHardDrive is an extremely dangerous rogue tool. And that’s not all – SafeHardDrive may also install additional malware into your computer, making it even more vulnerable to future attacks.
Our recommendation considering SafeHardDrive is thus: remove it ASAP if you have it, and install a reputable anti-spyware tool to avoid possible future infections. Also, be sure to block their IP address (22.214.171.124) with your HOSTS file.

Then, SafeHardDrive offers to buy the full version to fix these false errors. If the user agrees, SafeHardDrive does not only fix the errors, but it also takes the user’s money and may even install additional spyware into the victim’s computer.
