Ultra Defragger.

 Ultra Defragger is the latest addition to fake rogue defragmenters.
This tool is trying to scare you by showing various alerts about hardware malfunctions of your PC so you would pay for its repair. Comparing to real system repair tools, Ultra Defragger is advertised using Trojans and does not repair system for real. Not that these problems it shows would be real.
Once computer is infected, Ultra Defragger will start on each system start up. You will not miss it : It will start showing various errors when you execute programs or try to delete/rename/move files. The errors range from problems with hard disk to problems with ram, system temperature and other.
For sure these are not real either. But the real fun starts when one tries to scan system using Ultra Defragger.

Ultra Defragger shows fake warnings, and they are trying to scare non-computer savy users to purchase its full version. And it is costly too : A full license of Ultra Defragger costs around $80. This is a pure scam. The original infection might download other parasites as well, thus Ultra Defragger’s removal is highly advisable.

Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • <random>.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. %Temp%\[random].exe
  •  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "[random].exe"
Although it is possible to manually remove Ultra Defragger, 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.
