ScreenshotMyDisk (My Disk) is a fake system optimizer that operates undetected via misleading online scanners, false updates and corrupt video codecs. MyDisk hails from a family of fake defragmenters actively spreading on the web. The rogue stable includes HDD Low, HDD Rescue, Win Scanner and Disk Repair.

MyDisk pretends to be legitimate but it tricks users into believing that their PCs are infected and that they need to purchase a license for MyDisk to remove the so-called threats. Do not trust the alerts and scanners My Disk produces because you will be left without your money and with more viruses in your computer. All the errors reported by My Disk are invented to be misleading.

The MyDisk scam is designed to become active as soon as the affected computer reboots. My Disk will then bombard the hapless user with fake popup ads containing false information about hard disk errors. Donot fall for this blatant scam and have MyDisk removed using a reliable malware remover.
