ScreenshotDefragmenter is related to HDD Plus, HDD Diagnostic and Disk Doctor. These rogue programs are designed to pilfer money from unwary computer users. The scare tactics start by bombarding the system with fake system alerts claiming the computer is infected with all sorts of malware. Do not be fooled by this, it is an attempt to convince users to purchase Defragmenter, which is infact a fake product. Defragmenter will not help your system, it will cause you more problems. Ignore the fake warnings and use a reliable malware remover to make sure Defragmenter is removed from the system.
