Win Defrag - How to remove?
What is Win Defrag?
Win Defrag is a completely useless computer’s optimization utility, which will report fake problems with a reason of asking the money for their elimination. Together with earlier released Win HDD and HDD Control, Win Defrag malware should be treated in the same way – removed from the system, because it belongs to the same family of rogues. Instead of wasting your money for these threats, you should remove Win Defrag as soon as possible.
Mostly, this scam gets on the machine without any permission asked and then starts making havoc there by modifying some system parameters with a reason to interrupt every time you reboot your PC. Win Defrag uses backdoor trojans for its infiltration and that’s why it becomes capable enough to get inside undetected. When it has been successfully downloaded and installed into the targeted machine, malware starts doing its best to remain undetected, so it disables other security programs found on board. Besides, some of its victims claim that when on board Win Defrag completely disables computer, so that you can’t even browse the web or launch Task Manager. Then, Win Defrag starts triggering lots of alerts and also runs some fabricated system scanners that all will return the same old story that your computer is full of errors and problems, for example:
Windows can’t find hard disk space. Hard drive error
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \System32\496A8300. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware.
A critical error has occurred while indexing data stored on hard drive. System restart required.
