Defragmenting a hard drive can solve quite a few problems. It optimizes your computer, repairs any errors on the drive and can help make accessing data faster. Most computers have an onboard defragger program loaded when you buy them, but there are commercial versions that can do the job much faster and more efficiently. The problem is some of these programs which are calling themselves “defraggers” are actually pieces of malware. A latest example of this trend is the program calling itself “Ultra Defragger”.
You don’t even need to install Ultra Defragger. It sneaks into your system via fake video codecs or flash updates. Once it’s comfortably lodged in your system, it will start interfering with the operation of antiviruses so it won’t be detected. But this isn’t the biggest threat from it.This malware’s main purpose is to send you fake alerts of problems on your computer. The usual message that it will show is that there’s some sort of problem with your hard drive or current system setup. But if you actually look for the problem, there’s nothing wrong going on at all. This piece of scareware is trying to frighten you into buying its licensed version – which also happens to be very expensive. If you ever encounter a pop-up from this program, it’s best to remove it quickly. On the procedure how to do this, read on.
