Disk Doctor. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as DiskDoctor | Type: Spyware
12
Disk Doctor is a rogue computer repair and analysis program from the same family as Win HDD. Disk Doctor uses false scan results and fake error messages as a method to make you think that your computer has some serious problems. In order to protect itself from legitimate anti-malware programs it will attempt to block them. It may block other programs and system utilities too. However, if you attempt to run a program enough times it will work. While Disk Doctor is running it will be configured to start automatically when Windows starts. Once started, the program will perform a scan and then list a variety of hard drive disk errors, memory failures and other problems. These errors, though, do not exist on your computer.

While the program is running, Disk Doctor will also display numerous warnings and pop-ups from Windows taskbar. These error warnings range from notification stating that your computer has critical registry errors to a warning stating that hard drive is missing. The text of some of the alerts you may see include:


Critical Error!
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.


Critical Error
Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.


Critical Error
RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.

The program will also constantly show you alerts asking you to register the program. As they are shown so frequently this can become quite an annoyance. What is more, Disk Doctor will block nearly all legitimate programs on your computer and display the following message:


Windows detected a hard drive problem.
A hard drive error occurred while starting the application.

Some examples of the fake problems it detects on your computer are:


Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
Drive C initializing error
Hard drive doesn't respond to system commands
Data Safety Problem. System integrity is at risk.
Registry Error - Critical Error
