Disk Repair DescriptionDisk Repair is a rogue system defragmenter that is a clone of fake system optimizers before it. Once Disk Repair has infected a computer it will simulate a fake system scan and inform a victim that his/her machine has several errors. Disk Repair will claim that the hard drive cannot be detected or that the CPU temperature is dangerously high in order to scare a victim into looking for a quick solution.
Disk Repair is spread by Trojans or it can come bundled with internet downloads and malicious attachments in spammed e-mails. To avoid easy removal Disk Repair will create a start-up registry entry and block a user's access to security websites. Disk Repair may also disable firewalls and other security application.
Users should be careful not to fall for this scam. All scan reports and security alerts displayed by Disk Repair are not to be trusted because they are fake. Disk Repair should rather be removed from a PC the moment it is encountered. Users can attempt to remove this rogue manually or with a reliable anti-rogueware tool.
