System Repair

Posted: July 13, 2011

System Repair Description

ScreenshotSystem Repair is a fake defragmentation program (colloquially known as a 'defragger') that pretends to find errors on your PC, instead of defragging your hard drive. As just a clone of other rogue security applications, System Repair uses similar attacks on your PC security-related programs and may also interfere with your ability to view files and folders. However, these attacks don't directly cause harm to your PC, and removing System Repair with an anti-virus scanner should resolve all System Repair-related problems. Buying System Repair is never recommended, even to disable System Repair's attacks, since this will waste your money and allow your credit card to be abused by criminals.

Rotating Through System Repair's Rainbow of Fake Warnings

Most rogue security programs like System Repair are distributed by Trojans such as Zlob and Fake Microsoft Security Essentials Alert, although System Repair may also be downloaded from misleading websites. Relatives of System Repair use a similar interface and recycle the same attacks despite having different names - examples include Windows Diagnostic, Smart Defragmenter, FakeHDD, Windows Tool and WinScan. While pretending to scan your PC (in reality, System Repair has no such function), System Repair will also pretend to find countless wrong things in your computer.

Repairing Your Computer from the Inaccurately-Named System Repair Program

Even if you're aware of System Repair's general uselessness and are ready to get rid of it, removing System Repair can be frustrating if you're not prepared for System Repair's other attacks. One unique attack that System Repair makes use of is to hijack Windows Explorer (the baseline program that's used to display files and folders). With a System Repair infection on your computer, files and folders will seem to disappear at random or display in other inaccurate ways. However, this is only an attack on the visual features of Windows Explorer, not the files and folders themselves which System Repair has no power to harm.

Suffering from blocked application usage is also common for those who use a System Repair-infected PC. Basic Windows utilities and even various types of anti-virus software can be blocked by System Repair. Again, this System Repair attack doesn't harm the programs themselves, and all you have to do is deactivate System Repair to find that your programs are working properly.

In the case of the first attack, using an alternate program, such as the Command Prompt, will let you view and access your files. For the second attack, you may need to resort to Safe Mode or another method of preventing System Repair from starting. The registration code 8475082234984902023718742058948 may also be of use to lower System Repair's guard before you delete System Repair with a proper anti-virus tool.
