How To Get Rid of Win HDD – A Complete Win HDD Removal

October 3, 2017 Jon 0 Comments

Win HDD is a newcomer to the fake system scan software issue that is spreading online right now. This software promises to clear out your PC of errors and malfunctions, but all it is actually doing is slowing you down and putting you at risk of monetary theft and identity theft. The same group of hackers who created HDD Control and Check Disk have created this new program which will make it impossible to get anything done until you get rid of this Win HDD virus.

How Do I Know I Have It?

First, and most obviously, this program will start when you power on your computer. It will urge you to scan your computer to clear found errors. In reality, this malware created the errors, and just wants to steal your credit card information. Don’t ever purchase a ‘full version’ of malware like this, because you are opening yourself up to more viruses, and possibly identity theft.

Other signs of a spyware infection are sluggish PC performance, pop-ups while you use the internet, browser freezes, operating system crashes, irritating taskbar warnings, odd new icons or backgrounds, and over-worked computer hardware.

How Do I Remove Win HDD?

As with all viruses, you can either remove Win HDD manually or automatically. It shouldn’t surprise you that manual removal is only recommended for professionals or big PC nerds like me.

If you are either one, a manual removal means you will have to open your system’s registry and delete related Win HDD files in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER folder. You will need to get rid of infected DLL and LNK files with the Win HDD name in them. You will also want to block related websites, and delete related files and folders. You must be careful! If you get rid of the wrong registry file, you can turn your PC into a non-bootable, unusable paperweight, that will take hundreds of dollars to fix. This is why you should leave manual removal to the pros.

How Do I Just Get Rid of It Right NOW?

OK, the most simple way, which is also my preferred way, is automatic removal. I can remove Trojans, keyloggers, or fake system scans like this one in just a few clicks. I don’t always have the time to manually remove every threat on every ‘sick’ PC. It’s far easier to automatically remove viruses using a time-tested scanner. I recommend three in particular. They all do an amazing job of scanning, deletion, and prevention against the next big virus threat.

Tired of viruses like Win HDD threatining the security of your PC? Don’t be the next victim of online identity theft.Remove Win HDD now and regain your safety.
