This entry is devoted to the well-known group of fake defragmenters. They are called Smart HDD, Data Recovery and File Recovery. By the way, we have already told about them in our previous posts.

To completely erase these pests is a very important task for all victims but to restore the hidden information you should apply some additional efforts. In this post you will find out how to effectively eliminate these unwanted tools and get back your missing data.
These rogues typically act in the following way: firstly, they enter the targeted PCs without your permission. They totally disregard the authentication barriers as the restriction, since they are able to install themselves without user’s approval. The fraudware modify your system in a such manner that allow them to be launched automatically after every system reboot. They start up with every Windows login.
Smart HDD, Data Recovery and File Recovery rogues commence their malicious activities first by imitating the fake scanning of your computer. They tell that your system is in a horrible condition and then tell that you must immediately fix your computer to prevent further damage of it.
