The ultimate resource for malware removal and virus protection
Disk Helper (aka DiskHelper) is one more scam application representing the family of fake optimizers that has been exhibiting rapid growth during the last months. This program definitely lacks genuine capability to detect real Windows problems but in spite of this fact boldly reports many of those. Disk Helper usually comes with a trojan, i.e. a small fragment of malware code that manages to drill its way into your Operating System through a little security hole or a software vulnerability. Immediately after getting inside, Disk Helper will configure your computer to run its own process at each startup, thus making sure the nefarious app always launches when your switch on your machine. This being done, the malware will begin actively displaying counterfeit scanners and popup alerts of no informative value at all. Rephrasing the above statement, Disk Helper simply deceives you into thinking that the work of your computer is not proper and it needs some serious fixing. It tells you about hard drive detection issues (via the ‘No disk’ false positives), memory exploiting malfunctions and some critical parameters that are not compatible with normal use of your workstation. Disk Helper does this so as to get you worried and make you want to purchase its full commercial version. Well, we assure you at this point that paying for Disk Helper activation is not going to help in any way. You see, as we mentioned above this badware invents system problems by itself – consequently, there is no need doing anything to eliminate those. Disk Helper must be uninstalled instead. Considering the fact you will fail to find this scareware among the removable apps on Control Panel, you will have to apply a shrewder technique for Disk Helper extermination (see below for more information concerning this).
