SmartPCFix is a fake system optimizer that generates nonexistent hard drive errors and system issues. SmartPCFix is delivered via Trojans and malicious websites. SmartPCFix also uses exploit kits to take over the affected computer system. SmartPCFix pretends to be a real system optimization and defragmentation tool; however, SmartPCFix has no capabilities of detecting and removing any type of PC problems. Once installed, SmartPCFix launches a bogus system scan and reports numerous critical hard drive and RAM errors. SmartPCFix also displays fake pop-up security alerts that notify victimized PC users about hard drive errors and system issues. False scan results and falsified warning messages are used in an attempt to scare the victim into believing that his/her computer is infected with numerous security threats, and other various computer problems have been found. Then, SmartPCFix urges computer users to buy the so-called full version of the software product to repair identified system errors and computer problems. Never purchase SmartPCFix because it is not able to detect and repair any type of system issues and PC problems. ESG's malware researchers highly recommend you to remove SmartPCFix by using a reputable anti-malware program.
