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.
