It is really obvious that System Restore is the fake HDD program. Its reports about problems and errors are all fake. Its offer to buy its so-called full version has the only goal so far – to make the developers of such malware happier and, of course, rich. System Restore tool will not help you. Even if you obtain its full version the problems made by System Restore virus will remain. The goal of this post is primarily to warn you not to buy such virus program. Finally, get rid of it using decent anti-virus program or anti-malware scanner. GridinSoft Trojan Killer is a good program for this purpose.
