The “ScanDisk” program is a fake antivirus program which has been created by hackers to try and steal your personal information, as well as to try and get you to buy the fake upgrade to the program. It’s continually installed from various sources online and will take over vital functions that your computer uses to run, including the likes of the Windows “Task Manager”, your programs and your Internet. If you are unfortunate enough to be one of the 1,000’s of people to have this infection on their PC, you need to get rid of it in the most complete way possible to ensure that your PC can run as smoothly as possible again.
This virus is specifically known as “malware”, which stands for malicious software. This means that unlike typical viruses (which just place a small file / application into the depths of your computer), the ScanDisk virus places a fake application which pretends to perform some sort of task. Because the infection is just a software tool, the way to get rid of it is to delete all the files / settings it requires to run. It will have infected your computer from the likes of a fake email attachment, rogue download and malicious websites. To remove the infection, you need to be able to use the correct software and tools which are going to first stop the program from running, and then remove any of the parts of the virus which are allowing it to run.
The way to get rid of ScanDisk is to first stop the program from running and then remove its “program files” from your PC. Like any other software program on Windows, this virus will use a series of files to help it operate… meaning that if you have the infection, it’s paramount that you’re able to get rid of all the files the program requires to run. However, it’s important that you note one of the big problems with ScanDisk is that it will continually place a large number of “backup” files onto your system which is continually being used to reload the virus if it’s only partially deleted. This makes it vital you get rid of the program by using the correct & most complete method.
The best way to get rid of “ScanDisk” is to use a malware removal program, but in order to do that you need to be able to stop the program from running. Stopping the application from operating is actually the most difficult part of the removal process which most people cannot do. We’ve found that the best way to terminate the program, and then remove it, is to use a tool called “Frontline Rogue Remover”. This is a unique software tool which first shows you how to remove the virus from your PC, and then will delete all the files & settings it has placed onto your system. You can use this by downloading it onto your PC and then following the steps it explains on screen.
