Hdd Fix Description

ScreenshotHdd Fix (HddFix) is an illegitimate disk defragmentation application. Hdd Fix is used to trick unsuspecting users into purchasing it as a supposed remedy to falsely detected system errors. Hdd Fix is spread by Trojans; once the Trojans have installed and executed Hdd Fix on a system it will display fake scanners and pop-up alerts claiming to detect several errors in the hard drive, CPU as well as the system memory.

When a victim attempts to launch other programs on a compromised system, Hdd Fix may end the processes in order to further alarm the victim. The errors detected by Hdd Fix are not to be trusted and are better ignored. Hdd Fix can be removed with a good and legitimate anti-rogueware application.
