Do you know what Memory Fixer is?
With all the time and effort developers of rogueware put into their products, it can be difficult to distinguish the real deal from the many fakes which saturates the market. Memory Fixer, a scandalous clone of highly despised rogue optimizers HDD Fix, Quick Defrag, and Full Scan and Easy Scan runs as a perfectly legitimate and helpful system optimizer on the surface, but in reality this rogue is nothing more than a harmful scam out to fleece its victims out of their hard earned money.
Memory Fixer will, like any other rogue, enter the system without the knowledge of the PC owner. It enters the system with the aid of bundled malware and Trojan downloads from third party websites, and through illicit websites which make use of suspect drive-by download practices. Memory Fixer will remain stealth until such time that it deems it appropriate to reveal its presence to the user through unremitting pop up messages acting as fake security alerts. Each and every one of these bogus alerts is fake in nature, and deserves no attention from the PC owner. Their only purpose is to put Memory Fixer in a better light with its victims, as well as create a sense of panic among PC owners. Some of the more notorious fake Memory Fixer security alerts to be on the lookout for include the following:
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk."
Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \System32\496A8300. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware."
The system has been restored after a critical error. Data integrity and hard drive integrity verification required."
Memory Fixer Activation
Advanced module activation required to fix detected errors and performance issues. Please purchase Advanced Module license to activate this software and enable all features."
Simply pay no attention to these messages. It’s only one of the very annoying symptoms associated with a Memory Fixer infection. Other annoying symptoms include the user being unable to launch any program on his PC. This is done by Memory Fixer in an effort to prevent the user from running a security program on the system which will be able to remove Memory Fixer from the system. When the user tries to launch a program, Memory Fixer will display the following error:
"Windows detected a hard drive problem.
A hard drive error occurred while starting the application."
This can easily become an exhaustive annoyance. Should you wish to activate Memory Fixer on your PC in order to reestablish your Internet connection and have access to your programs again, enter the following security key:
By entering this key, you will not get rid of Memory Fixer but will just be freeing your PC of the annoying extortionary tactics employed by Memory Fixer. You will still need to eliminate Memory Fixer from the system in order to take back control of your PC and restore its security and health.
Don’t fall victim to this rogue. Erase Memory Fixer from the PC at the earliest convenience. Take the time to download a properly functioning security application which will not only destroy Memory Fixer but also offer future protection.
In non techie terms:
Memory Fixer is a scam. This dishonest software has none of its advertised abilities, and will only scheme you out of your money while leaving you with nothing more than an empty shell. Delete Memory Fixer from your system in order to restore order and security to your PC.
