ScreenshotIt is obvious that Disk Repair is an unwanted application, and users who value their PCs' health will get rid of DiskRepair immediately. Disk Repair spreads via the usual tactics employed by developers of (Trojan and malware downloads) rogueware. Disk Repair will pretend to be a reliable, trustworthy application. Disk Repair is ransomware developed by hackers to inflict damage and devastation in its attempt to extort money from unwary computer users.

After infiltration Disk Repair will attack the PC by bombarding the user with fake popup warnings claiming the PC has been infected.
