Disk OK Description
Disk OK is a rogue defragmenter program that fakes various helpful system maintenance features while attacking your computer’s applications and file visibility settings. Disk OK’s system alerts only offer lies about your system integrity, and you should have no qualms about removing Disk OK from your PC as soon as you catch Disk OK on-board. Since Disk OK and similar rogue security programs are often dropped onto new computer systems by Trojans, you should also take care to find and deal with any related malware, in addition to Disk OK.
Disk OK: Not So OK for Your Computer
Rogue defragmenters in the Disk OK family are numerous and go by many different names, but use similar attacks on your PC. Some relatives of Disk OK include Fast Disk, My Disk, Good Memory, Win Scanner, HDD OK and HDD Rescue. Disk OK and all other defraggers related to Disk OK will promptly spill out a virtual cornucopia of false system alerts.
Here are some of the errors you may see as a result of Disk OK’s presence on your PC:
The system has been restored after a critical error. Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required.
Requested registry access is not allowed. Registry defragmentation required
32% of HDD space is unreadable
Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
Windows detected a hard drive problem.
A hard drive error occurred while starting the application.
Data Safety Problem.
Ram Temperature is 83 C. Optimization is required for normal operation.
GPU RAM temperature is critically high. Urgent RAM memory optimization is required to prevent system crash
Drive C initializing error
Hard drive doesn’t respond to system commands
Registry Error – Critical Error
A critical error has occurred while indexing data stored on hard drive. System restart required.
Not only are these errors highly inaccurate, many of them are unrealistic and would make your computer unable to function! Disk OK will tell you that these problems can’t be fixed unless you register for the full version of Disk OK, which, naturally, costs money. Instead, you’ll be better off if you just remove Disk OK and enjoy the peace and quiet of a computer that isn’t plagued by senseless error pop-ups.
Making Everything ‘OK’ Again
Disk OK may also hide your files or make it appear as though they’ve been moved to different folders; this attack is purely on the visual interface, and doesn’t hurt the files themselves. If you use an alternative method to access the files, such as a command line, you’ll be able to tell that your files are all right where they were in the first place.
Disk OK may also stop programs from running and display an error like the one you can see below:
Windows cannot find [executable file]. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.
To put a halt to all of Disk OK’s attacks, revert to Safe Mode, which will stop Disk OK from launching and attacking your PC while Disk OK keeps on running in the background. You can finish Disk OK off by running a full system scan to remove Disk OK and any other malware that might be on your computer. Save yourself some time and update whatever scanner you choose to use before you run the scan, since Disk OK isn’t that old as far as rogue security programs go, and may avoid detection by less up to date scanning software.
