Windows 7 Fix is almost the same malware as Windows XP Fix which will also pretend to be a powerful PC optimization tool. Windows 7 Fix will continuously give you hard drive error reports that will return nothing else but completely fake results that are expected to make you purchase this scam. Please, never believe the problems announced on Windows 7 Fix messages! These should be only ignored in order to prevent more damage done to your machine. Additionally, you must remove Windows 7 Fix before it lets more viruses inside and steals your money together with credit card details. If you notice it, launch updated STOPzilla immediately and remove Windows 7 Fix without any delay.

Windows 7 Fix is all about deceiving PC users. It reports multiple hard drive problems found on your computer and then asks you to make a payment to get them fixed. This trick is quite usual between such scams and it can be easily said that all those ‘errors’ found by Windows 7 Fix are non-existent. To make you fall into this lie even more, this scamware deletes shortcuts found in various locations, so when trying to launch a program from your start menu, none of shortcuts appear.
