Do you know what Windows 7 Fix is?
Windows 7 Fix is a new rogue defragmenter with the ability to alter its properties to suit its environment. It can change its name to fit in with whichever Windows operating system the user is using, and can change its name to Windows Vista Fix or Windows XP fix. This level of sophistication among rogue applications are becoming more and more common, and it makes it difficult for users to distinguish between genuine tools and rubbish rogue applications like Windows 7 Fix.
This rogue will use any means at its disposal to facilitate its infiltration of the system. This can include making use of bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers as part of its online marketing campaign. It will also use infected online flash ads and bundled third party downloads.
Windows 7 Fix will initiate a fake system scan each time the user logs on to Windows. These fake scans will yield various false results warning the user about fake errors crippling the system. This is all done in an effort to panic the user into paying for Windows 7 Fix’s worthless software.
It will continue its attack against the PC by not allowing the user to execute any programs on the infected PC, and to block the user’s access to the Internet. Windows 7 Fix will also hide certain system folders’ contents from the user, and promote erratic system behavior.
When all is said and done the only way you will be able to limit the damage this rogue will cause and restore your PC’s security will be to get rid of Windows 7 Fix. This is safest done by using a powerful security tool.
In non techie terms:
Windows 7 Fix is a bogus defragmenter with none of its stated abilities. Take back what is rightfully yours and destroy Windows 7 Fix immediately.
