WindowsScan Description

Type: Rogue AntiSpyware Programs

ScreenshotWindowsScan aka Windows Scan, is a illegitimate PC optimization application. However, instead of improving system performance, Windows Scan is apt to decrease the PC speed and alert computer users of false errors. The error reports generated by Windows Scan are part of a scam to unwillingly force computer users into purchasing the Windows Scan application in hopes that it would 'resolve' the presented issues by the software.

WindowsScan, another member of the FakeSysDef family, is remarkably comparable to other fake optimization tools that have likely been created by the same group of hackers, which include System Defragmenter, Ultra Defragger, HDD Control, Win HDD, Win Defrag, Win Defragmenter, Disk Doctor, Hard Drive Diagnostic, HDD Diagnostic, HDD Plus, HDD Repair, HDD Rescue, Smart HDD, Defragmenter, HDD Tools, Disk Repair, Windows Optimization Center, Scanner, HDD Low, Hdd Fix.

WindowsScan is not able to speed up a PCs performance nor detect actual PC errors. In no way should Windows Scan be trusted to 'boost PC performance' has it claims. Windows Scan could ultimately cause damages if not removed.ScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshotScreenshot
