HDD Fix.



HDDFix or HDD Fix is a scam tool, computer virus which will be presented as a powerful hard disk defragmenter.

However, this is not true as this malware is even incapable to detect any error and solve the problems connected with your hard disk. Even more, HDD Fix is dangerous because it will aggressively try to steal your money after its trickily designed campaign based on fake system scanners and alerts. Being created by the same cyber terrorists who released Quick Defrag, Easy Scan, Full Scan or HDD Low, HDD Fix must be removed from the system as soon as possible, so get a reputable anti-spyware if you notice this scam.
HDD Fix enters computers or PC networks with the help of trojan horses that mostly use security vulnerabilities for getting inside undetected. Once this scam has accomplished its intrusion, it will start playing havoc with your computer like interrupting into your browsing or disabling all security programs found. The one and only reason why it displays all these errors is trying to make you start thinking that your computer is in danger and you need some “licensed” software from fixing it. However, it must be understood that HDD Fix reports only invented errors that mostly don’t even exist.
Additionally if not removed from the system, HDD Fix will keep running just after you reboot your computer and will always return the same exaggerated results. You must realize that this software is not real defragmenter and you must remove HDD Fix.
Removal:

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %UserProfile%\AppData\[random].exe
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\afwserv.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastsvc.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
  •  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\avastui.exe "Debugger" = 'svchost.exe'
Although it is possible to manually remove HDD Fix, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
