File Integrity Checker Description
File Integrity Checker is a fake file scanner and defragger that uses inaccurate system information in conjunction with other attacks to convince you that your PC is nearing the brink of a total meltdown. As a clone of other rogue defragmenters from FakeSysDef family, though, File Integrity Checker doesn’t have any form of legitimate file analysis or defragging features, and any information that File Integrity Checker provides you should be disregarded. Since File Integrity Checker will also make security-damaging changes to Internet Explorer’s settings and attempt to block many or even all other non-critical applications, SpywareRemove.com malware experts suggest that you kick File Integrity Checker to the curb ASAP by running a good anti-malware scanner in Safe Mode (or another mode of system boot that prevents File Integrity Checker from starting itself).
A Checkup on File Integrity Checker’s Personal Integrity
File Integrity Checker markets itself as a totally independent, reputable and highly functional hard drive scanner and file checker, but none of the features that File Integrity Checker claims to have are, in fact, real. Although File Integrity Checker may display error messages that appear to be legitimate, the threats and problems that File Integrity Checker warns you about don’t really exist on your PC, and any system problems that you experience are likely to be caused by File Integrity Checker or a related PC threat. The following messages are some of the possibilities that File Integrity Checker may show you to deceive you about your PC’s health:
Windows cannot find (your application here). Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

The Real Errors from File Integrity Checker That You Should Be Ready to Fix
While File Integrity Checker can’t detect unrelated problems with your PC, File Integrity Checker is, by itself, capable of causing a range of different issues along with its fake defragger hoax. Side effects of a File Integrity Checker infection can also include:
- Modified Internet Explorer settings that lower the safety of your web-browsing activities.
- A desktop image that’s locked to a fake warning message.
- Blocked applications, including Task Manager.
Since File Integrity Checker’s installation may inject malicious code into normal system processes, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts recommend that you avoid trying to remove File Integrity Checker without assistance from dedicated security software. If File Integrity Checker attempts to block your anti-malware programs, using Safe Mode with Networking, booting from a USB device or switching to a secondary OS will disable File Integrity Checker and let you complete a scan without impediments.
