System Fix

System Fix Description


System Fix Screenshot 1System Fix, far from fixing your PC, actually will damage it by displaying fake alerts, interfering with your file-viewing settings and blocking security-related programs to protect itself from deletion. As a rogue defragmenter, System Fix is incapable of truly defragmenting files or detecting system errors, although pop-up alerts from System Fix will try to convince you otherwise. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers discourage any attempts at purchasing System Fix while removing System Fix, since this will expose your credit card information to criminals, in addition to wasting your money. Instead, simply remove System Fix with a competent anti-malware application (if necessary, using Safe Mode and other anti-malware techniques to prevent System Fix from blocking the scanner).

Why System Fix isn’t a Fix You Should Be Hankering to Have


System Fix is distributed by malicious websites and dropper Trojans that install System Fix while pretending that System Fix is a helpful file-checker and defragmenter. Unfortunately, SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have cracked System Fix open and found naught but a hostile core of code that attacks the host PC in a variety of ways, all of which are typical to System Fix’s family of rogue defraggers. Other rogue defraggers from the same group as System Fix include System Restore (not to be confused with the Windows System Restore function), Windows Restore, Windows Diagnostic, System Diagnostic, WinScan and Windows Tool.

System Fix’s most-apparent attack is its proclivity for creating fake alerts (and similar forms of system errors,) while System Fix is active in your PC – and, since System Fix launches itself on Windows startup, you can expect these pop-ups to appear very often. Examples of these misleading warning messages that SpywareRemove.com malware researchers have noted include:

Windows detected a hard disk error.
A problem with the hard drive sectors has been detected.

32% of HDD space is unreadable

Despite their alarming contents, these warnings are completely erroneous, and their instructions should never be obeyed; in point of fact, each and every one of System Fix’s pop-ups has no purpose, except to make you waste money on a registered version of System Fix.

The Fix to Kick System Fix Out of Your PC


Preparations to delete System Fix can be slowed down by System Fix’s other functions, some of which are designed explicitly for this purpose, and others of which are meant to make you feel that your computer is nearing a breakdown.
  • System Fix may hinder your ability to see files and folders in Windows Explorer (the default file-viewing program for Windows).
  • System Fix may move your shortcuts and program icons to unusual locations, such as the Temp folder.
  • Unrelated security and anti-malware programs may be unable to run while System Fix is active; two common methods of avoiding this are to rename the program file or to reboot Windows in Safe Mode settings.

As long as you remove System Fix from your PC with a good anti-malware scanner, as quickly as possible, permanent damage to your files or to Windows can be averted. However, if you’ve given up your credit card to System Fix’s machinations, SpywareRemove.com malware analysts strongly encourage you to speak with your credit card company about canceling it – this will prevent additional charges that will continue to waste your money and potentially even harm your credit rating.

    I had this virus with Vista Home Premium OS. I had to go to adminstrative tools to show programs running. I deleted the operation and then found the downloaded files \&quot;Free Movies\&quot; publisher Mouskit AG which matched the name of the company of the program I had stopped. I cleared out my recylce bin to completely remove the software. I had tried to delete from the programs unistall and the install log file could not be found.

    What a disaster!! For free, no one wants to help for free. I purchased pctools. Took 5 1/2 hours to get my computer working and that thing gone. Even so, I was going through my icons and there were many I did not put there, low and behold, an icon for System Fix I deleted that thing so fast. I had to do mine on the telephone.
