Windows Tool is a fake disk defragmentation program that displays fake error messages and pop-ups to make you think that your computer has some serious hard drive problems. The rogue program prompts to pay for a full version of the program to fix the errors. If you choose to purchase this bogus program, you will lose your money and give your credit card details to the cybercriminals who created this malware. Please use the removal instructions below to remove Windows Tool from your computer upon detection.

Windows Tool enters the system via Trojans, infected websites and fake online scanners. The program runs system scanner and later on reports critical errors detected on your system. It warns you that some of your private data might be lost because of the lack of free space, RAM memory usage, etc. The truth is that it is fake information and Windows Tool only wants you to believe your system is infected. Windows Tool will offer you purchasing a full version of its program with a promise that this will fix everything. However, its real intention is to receive your money, but in return you won’t get anything. Do not buy this rogue program. It won't help you. Some of the texts that you may see are:
