New fake anti-malware tool is already circulating in Web. It is known under the name of Data Repair. It is outwardly the same as Data Recovery. It claims to be system diagnostics utility, but believe us, it is far from truth. It pursues one objective only – to persuade trusting computer users that they have got serious bugs which are the results of virus aggressions. Data Repair emphasizes the necessity of immediate help for your PC. It displays preprogrammed invented warning notifications at certain intervals of time. This fake application also initiates a series of system scanners which allegedly detects tons of viruses, worms and rogues.

The snapshot of this bad program’s scanning screen above reflects the initiation of this pseudo system check. It goes without saying that it purportedly checks up your machine for related problems with “My Computer”, HDD, RAM Memory and OS Registry. A regular optimization tool enhances the computer performance while its scan is in progress, but Data Repair merely depicts something it was coded to. The program we speak about is not in state to fulfill the functions it claims to implement. Despite this absolute truth, it still generates multiple errors in its PC Performance and Stability analysis results. Once you receive these results, the pest insists on purchasing its commercial version by hitting the associated button at the bottom of its GUI. It pushes you to effect a payment, but do it under no circumstances, because you will waste your money for nothing. We would recommend you to keep away from Data Repair’s so-called services. And remove it at once after detection. Our team has developed automatic and manual removal instructions. Find them below please.
