HDD Scan - How to remove

HDD Scan

HDD scan is another annoying fake system optimization utility that propagates using trojans and network worms. This type of scareware tries to convince user about malfunctioning system hardware and claims that software solution for 60-80 USD can fix all the numerous problems users haven’t noticed before. These problems might be:

  • Hard disk failures
  • Ram failures
  • GPU overheating
  • Registry problems

In all of these cases the problems are nonexisting, and the real problem is HDD Scan malware attack.
To convince you, HDD scan scareware uses alerts like these:

Requested registry access is not allowed. Registry defragmentation required
Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
32% of HDD space is unreadable
Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
GPU RAM temperature is critically high. Urgent RAM memory optimization is required to prevent system crash
Drive C initializing error
Ram Temperature is 83 C. Optimization is required for normal operation.
Hard drive doesn’t respond to system commands
Data Safety Problem. System integrity is at risk.
Registry Error – Critical Error

Critical Error
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.

Critical Error!
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.

Critical Error!

System Restore
The system has been restored after a critical error. Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required.

If you click on these, a faked scan window will appear and will suggest you to start system scan for errors. All of the errors will be about the same to listed above – non-realistic and false.
I strongly recommend not paying for this scam as they will surely sell your credit card details further.
The problem with HDD scan removal is following: Many of programs launched will be stopped by this malware. However, you will be able to launch them on second or third try. The simplest way to start removal would be trying to use a registration key that is already know (if the makers haven’t changed it) : 0973467457475070215340537432225 . Then download CCleaner and do a full system temporally files cleanup – HDD scan executable resides in temporally folders. Then scan with spyhunter or malwarebytes to remove all the remaining infections. You would be far less likely to get infected if your PC would have full versions of these anti-malware tools or decent internet security suite.
