Do you know what Win HDD is?
In recent times it has become increasingly difficult to distinguish between genuine PC tools and rogue tools only out to fleece consumers out of their money, as is the case with Win HDD. Deriving from a family of well known rogue defragmenters, which include Ultra Defragger and Check Disk, this Win HDD is nothing but a harmful and worthless rogue defragmenter.
Following the same modus operandi as similar rogue defragmenters, Win HDD will report on nonexistent hardware problems and errors in an effort to panic users and extort money out of them. Win HDD is also considered to be ransomware as it takes control of the infected PC and will render the system unmanageable unless the users pay for the software or eliminate Win HDD from their systems
Win HDD will use various fake security notifications in the form of annoying popup messages to further its agenda and to inform the user of the supposed “errors” affecting his system. Some of these messages read as follows:
Windows can’t find hard disk space. Hard drive error”
“Windows detected a hard drive problem.
A hard drive error occurred while starting the application.”
Symptoms of a Win HDD infection include the user being unable to launch legit executables and programs and will promote erratic system behavior.
In order to limit the damage that Win HDD poses to your system, you are advised to get rid of Win HDD with the help of powerful security software. Do not waste time, and simply obliterate Win HDD off your PC without delay.
In non techie terms:
Win HDD is an empty shell offering no benefit whatsoever to any infected PC. Win HDD is not endorsed or distributed by Microsoft, and users should never pay for any Win HDD program. Users who value the safety and health of their systems should take the necessary steps to stop Win HDD for good.
