Hard Drive Diagnostic.



Hard Drive Diagnostic is a malicious application that imitates being system optimization tool.
It’s another member of fake system defragmenters family that works exactly the same way as its predecessors HDD Scan, Ultra Defragger, Win HDD, HDD Control and others.
Hard Drive Diagnostics tells you about detecting some critical errors on your computer and claims that it can only fix them if you purchase a license of Hard Drive Diagnostic. Those critical errors usually include hard drive errors or RAM memory problems. The program may state that Windows can’t find hard disk space and similar things.
Moreover, you will be constantly bothered with scans performed by Hard Drive Diagnostics which will keep warning about detecting tons of critical errors. Each such scan will redirect you to the website offering purchasing Hard Drive Diagnostic. Besides, it will disturb you every time you will try to run any of your legitimate programs. 

Removal:

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 fake Hard Drive Diagnostic, 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.
