HDDControl is a fake PC optimization tool which is going to create numerous problems for you and take over the whole computer’s system while trying to rip you off. It shouldn’t be trusted as it reports about tons of security problems detected and then offers its “full” version for removal. Instead of these promised actions, HDD Control will continue its annoying interruptions, will start recording your browsing habits and may even let more viruses inside your machine. So, make sure that you don’t trust HDD Control fake defragmenter because it clearly hails from the same family as HDD Defragmenter, Quick Defragmenter or the latest CheckDisk. You should never purchase anything what was suggested by these scams and the best solution would be to remove HDD Control just like any other of them as soon as you can.
Just after HDDControl manages to get inside your computer undetected, it starts playing dirty game for making you purchase its fake licensed version. Firstly it floods infected computer’s system with alerts about critical errors detected. Malware will return various misleading alerts and notifications and also will imitate checking of the system actions to prove that these “detections” are real. Mostly, this fake defragmenter displays such alerts:
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.
