HDD Control is a fake optimization tool that should not be confused with the legitimate software that bears the same name. HDD Control is advertised as a product that can protect the computer user's data, but, in reality, HDD Control is nothing more than a fraudulent and useless optimization tool. HDD Control will enter a computer system via deceptive internet downloads or vulnerability exploiting Trojans. Once inside a system, HDD Control will claim to detect numerous malware that can only be removed with the purchase of its "full version". The frequent security alerts and pop-up warnings displayed by HDD Control are all fake and users should never waste their money on the useless HDD Control. HDD Control is another member of the FakeSysDef family.
