Windows Fix Disk is a fake system optimization program which has been designed identically to other malware threats, like System Restore or Windows Tool. All hailing from the same fraudulent family, these scams seek the only goal – to rip users off by reporting various hard disk issues and problems. Besides, to create an impression that something is wrong, it may hide some of your legitimate files as well and display error messages when launching normal programs or deleting files. It should be noted that you must NEVER believe warnings displayed by Windows Fix Disk and fall into purchasing the ‘license’ which is more than worthless. Trying to push its victims into making a payment, Windows Fix Disk will firstly start reporting invented problems of hard disk and then will redirect to its ‘official’ website which offers ‘reputable’ tool for defragmentation. Keep in mind that it’s useless. To avoid intruders like this, you must have a decent anti-spyware which will give you a real time protection.
In the beginning, Windows FixDisk infiltrates through security vulnerabilities and firewall flaws what is usually done with a help of Trojans. When on board and operating, it displays misleading scanners that all claim that your system registry has numerous errors and problems:
A critical error has occurred while indexing data stored on hard drive. System restart required.
The system has been restored after a critical error. Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required.
Windows Fix Disk Activation
Advanced module activation required to fix detected errors and performance issues. Please purchase Advanced Module license to activate this software and enable all features.
Windows – No Disk
Exception Processing Message 0x0000013
Then, you won’t be allowed to fix these detections, but will be offered to get a “must have” program which will be promised to help. In addition, Windows Fix Disk says that it will start operating only upon you make a payment. Please, don’t do this! You will simply lose your money and will be still ‘reported’ about hard disk problems, such as:
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
Hard Drive Failure
The system has detected a problem with one or more installed IDE / SATA hard disks. It is recommended that you restart the system.
An error occurred while reading system files. Run a system diagnostic utility to check your hard disk drive for errors.
Paying Windows Fix Disk is a huge mistake, so don’t fall into this. These are tactics practiced by spywares to fool people into buying worthless and dangerous program, so it’s strongly recommended not to follow them. You must have realized that this optimizer is fake, so remove Windows Fix Disk once detected on your machine.
