HDD Repair Image

HDD Repair is a fake system defragmenter which is typically distributed/installed onto computers by Trojans or fake online scanners. HDD Repair, as other members of the FakeSysDef family does not require a users permission to be installed or executed on a computer system. On successful execution, HDD Repair will display a fake system scanner with a similar GUI as its relatives. Once the fake system scan is complete, the victim will be notified of several hard drive or registry errors on the PC and then he/she will be prompted to pay for the "licensed version" of HDD Repair in order to repair the detected system errors.

HDD Repair will also prevent a victim from executing other programs installed on the PC so as to avoid being removed from the system with a security application. HDD Repair is one rogue application that you should never trust or pay for. Remove HDD Repair from your PC the moment you encounter its fake security alerts.
