How to Remove System Check – System Check Removal

System Check Description

System Check is a rogue PC defragmenter. System Check belongs to a family of rogue defragmenters known as FakeSysDef, which are typically disguised as system optimization tools or defragmenters. Clones of System Check include Data Repair, System Repair, and System Fix. While System Check claims to be able to solve problems in your hard drive, System Check is actually designed to scam inexperienced users by convincing them to purchase a license for a useless ‘full version’ of this malicious scam. According to ESG security researchers, System Check is closely linked to various Trojan infections. Because of this, failure to remove System Check and its associated malware from your computer system will cause a number of severe problems with your computer’s normal operation. This is because System Check makes dangerous changes to your computer’s registry, as well as dropping various malicious executable files. Another reason why System Check is harmful to your computer is that the Trojan that brought System Check will typically exploit security vulnerabilities on your computer in order to install itself against your will, making your computer particularly vulnerable to further intrusions. ESG malware analysts strongly advise removing System Check immediately with the help of a reliable anti-virus program. Most importantly, do not pay heed to any of System Check’s messages or alerts; these are all part of its scam.

How System Check Attempts to Make You Panic

System Check is designed to display a constant barrage of fake alert messages claiming that there are critical errors in the infected computer’s hard drive. These messages may claim that your RAM usage is too high, and there has been a RAM memory failure or that your computer cannot read system files. These claims should be ignored, since they are designed to make you panic. The reason why System Check tries to make you panic is so that you will buy System Check in order to fix these imaginary problems. However, handing over your money to criminals behind System Check is practically the same as simply throwing your money into the garbage. Typical symptoms of a System Check infection include browser redirects, poor system performance, frequent crashes and the non-stop stream of alarming messages and bogus system alerts. If your computer system is exhibiting any of previously mentioned symptoms, it is a very clear sign that your PC has become infected with a rogue defragmenter. Take steps to protect yourself from this malware infection immediately.
