File Integrity Checker

File Integrity Checker Description

Type: Adware

File Integrity Checker is a rogue defragmenter utility that belongs to a very large family of rogue system optimization tools. According to ESG security researchers, the members of the FakeSysDef family of rogue defragmenters is designed to display a barrage of exaggerated error messages which are meant to make the computer user believe that their computer system is falling apart. File Integrity Checker and its clones do this in order to convince their victims to pay for a registration code in order to get all the features of File Integrity Checker. However, since File Integrity Checker has absolutely no way of optimizing a computer system, ESG security researchers strongly advise not paying any money for File Integrity Checker. This fake defragmenter is actually a malware application itself.

The proper course of action is to remove File Integrity Checker with a reliable anti-malware tool. File Integrity Checker has dozens of clones, that is, copies of itself that only differ in name and small changes to the user interface. Some examples of clones of File Integrity Checker include System Defragmenter, Ultra Defragger, HDD Control, Win HDD, Win Defrag, Win Defragmenter, Disk Doctor, Hard Drive Diagnostic, HDD Diagnostic, HDD Plus, HDD Repair, HDD Rescue, Smart HDD, Defragmenter, HDD Tools, Disk Repair, Windows Optimization Center, Scanner, HDD Low, Hdd Fix.

Dealing with a File Integrity Checker Infection

Despite the fact that File Integrity Checker pretends to be a real system optimization tool, this application does little more than display constant, annoying error messages claiming multiple things wrong with your computer (some of which could not possibly be true). Inexperienced computer users might be alarmed to see these kinds of messages and fall for File Integrity Checker's scam. In order to stop this barrage of error messages, computer users may use the registration code 8475082234984902023718742058948.

However, it is really important to understand that this code will not remove File Integrity Checker from your computer system, but will merely stop File Integrity Checker from displaying error messages. As long as File Integrity Checker remains on your computer system, you will be vulnerable to further malware infections. File Integrity Checker will also block certain applications and files that are useful for dealing with malware – for example, File Integrity Checker will block many known security programs and Windows components like Task Manager or System Restore. Going online may also be a problem, since File Integrity Checker has been known to cause browser redirects to its own website, particularly on computer systems using outdated copies of Internet Explorer to browse the Internet.
