File Rescue

By GoldSparrow in Rogue Registry Cleaner

File Rescue is a rogue HDD defragmentation tool, which masquerades as a genuine system optimization and defragmentation program. File Rescue strives to persuade affected Internet users into purchasing the imaginary full version to allegedly remove computer problems and system errors it founds on your PC. File Rescue enters the infected machine by using Trojan infections or via malicious websites. File Rescue can make your desktop black by hiding all icons. File Rescue will also hide all files and folders on the computer system. After successful installation on a compromised PC, File Rescue will perform a fictitious system scan and show falsified scan results to scare you that numerous PC problems and system errors have been detected on your computer. File Rescue will also display fake security warnings to inform the victim that his/her computer is contaminated with various threats. Then, File Rescue will press a targeted PC user to make a payment for its fake software to supposedly remove identified computer problems and system errors. File Rescue is a malware program that attempts to extort money from computer users. Therefore, ESG's research team advises you not to rely on and buy File Rescue. Uninstall File Rescue from your computer system immediately once you detect it by using a recognized anti-malware program.
