Data Recovery is a renewed version of already known rogue hard drive defragmenter, very serious virus threat that represents danger for your system integrity. This application was developed by the team of cyber hackers in order to demand money from users who aren’t even aware of malicious plot of this scam. No doubt, this is the hoax to avoid by all means, and if you have already seen this pest on your computer it is time for actions instead of doubts. Without hesitation, this virus should be deleted immediately from your system, before it completely ruins your workstation and makes the total turmoil inside of it.

When Data Recovery rogue first enters your system it indeed creates chaos in the minds of many users who don’t realize it is a scareware. The program makes the total turmoil out of your machine. For example, it hides the majority of your files, folders, icons, shortcuts, etc. The desktop turns out to be totally blank (black) or empty. You can’t see any data on your computer when it is infected, because the files and folders now have the hidden attribute. This is all quite scary if you don’t realize that you’re being tricked by the rogue. The malware has the only aim – to persuade you to pay for its licensed version as the supposed solution to fix all your problems. This scam is not the right investment of your funds, not at all. Remember that the rogue first made all these problems, and then it tells you to buy its license to have them all fixed. As you see, this is not the right way of investing funds. So, ignore whatever this scam tells you. It is not worthy of your trust.

    I fell for this scam and paid the money. I did not know what else to do. IF this ever happens again, what do I do to get out of the black screen? My computer would not do anything.

    Thank you!
