Check Disk is a rogue computer defragmenter and analysis program that deliberately reports fake hard drive, Windows registry and other system errors. It wants to make you think that your computer has some serious problems and to scare you into purchasing the rogue program. CheckDisk pretends to scan your hard drives and system memory for errors. Then it will state that you need to use the so-called defragment tool to fix the errors. Please do not fall victim to this rogue program and remove Check Disk from your computer upon detection. Please use the removal instructions below.

Check Disk is a clone of Ultra Defragger. Check Disk reaches the system without user permission and in order to protect itself attempts to disable legit antimalware software found. Compromised computer becomes completely taken over by this fake program in the result of such actions and Check Disk begins the campaign it was designed to. Check Disk will be configured to launch at startup, so be sure it will greatly affect your computer by running fake scanners and pop-up ads or notifications that will annoy you. It will also block other programs that are important for a normal computer’s work, like notepad, task manager, registry editor and other system tools. Some of the fake alerts read:


Critical Error!
