The 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert is part of the File Restore rogue defragmenter. This fake system optimization program carries out a common scam that involves convincing computer users that their computer is in severe trouble. Apart from the 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert, this family of rogue security software displays numerous other alarming messages claiming severe errors on the infected computer. If your computer is displaying the 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert, ESG security researchers strongly advise using a reliable anti-malware solution to erase all traces of File Restore or its clones from your computer.

Failure to remove the fake defragmenter from your computer will result in additional error messages and eventually expose your computer to more dangerous malware infections.

The 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert scam is not complicated. Criminals distribute fake system optimization programs that promise to defragment your hard drives and correct any errors on your computer. However, ESG security researchers have observed that these programs have no way of fixing the victim's computer or of detecting legitimate problems. This is because they are part of a well known scam. Basically, these fake security programs display numerous error messages similar to the 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert to convince the computer user that numerous problems were found on the infected computer. However, trying to use File Restore to fix these problems results in additional error messages urging the victim to upgrade to an expensive, 'full version' of the fake security program. Since File Restore and its clones are not able to detect or remove malware or solve drive troubles, it is essential to avoid paying for this supposed 'full version'; instead, an anti-malware tool should be used to stop the 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert from appearing by removing the fake security program that causes the 'Data Error Reading Drive C:\' fake alert.
