HDD Scan

HDD Scan is a rogue system defragmenter tool and, therefore, will not fix any security problems it alleges to have detected. HDDScan is similar to Disk Doctor because it uses deceiving system alerts to frighten computer users into paying for its non-existent license. HDD Scan is not a program users should purchase to optimize a computer for peak performance.

Once HDD Scan infiltrates a computer, it obstructs users from using other programs on the PC or downloading programs from the Web. HDD Scan’s fake system alerts appear as error messages that warn the user of detected problems with the hard drive. All security messages and scan reports generated by HDD Scan are not to be trusted; instead users should use a malware remover that can bypass HDD Scan’s blocking capabilities.
