System Check fake system optimizer is a serious PC enemy in the cyber world today. This program is created to rip off users and to prompt them into thinking their computer has plenty of errors that must be fixed. The malware then tells that it is the great solution to fix them all, however, it would not let you attempt to “use” it unless you first purchase its full or licensed version. The above-mentioned trick is peculiar to all rogue security applications. System Check program cannot be classified as typical rogue software. It is more correctly to classify it as fake HDD program. There are very many names in the family of bogus system defragmenters, similar to System Check malware. None of them should actually be trusted or treated seriously, as well as the fake error messages they originate. Below is the example of such fictitious and misleading statement presented by the virus program described in this article:

Malware programs like System Check would not let users have a piece of mind until they are finally removed. The fake HDD tool would keep warning users of various types and forms of system errors. The reality, however, is that they all are fake. The warning of your system files being damaged and system being unstable is the example of such misleading information originated by System Check virus and similar malware programs. You should be extremely careful lest you put your trust into these malware samples. They were developed specifically in order to trick and fool users, prompting them into paying for their licensed version. You need to understand that both full and trial versions of such applications are equally useless and helpless when it comes to fixing real system errors. Hence, purchasing them is the total waste of money. Below is the quotation from the above-mentioned bogus error warning:
The problem of your computer’s hard drive clusters being damaged is a real one. It can occur with any computer, irrespective of whether it is old or new one. The hardware part of our PC is not intended to last forever. So, with time it no longer functions as it should. Sometimes running legitimate system optimizer tool can help you to relocate you data to clusters that are still functioning well. In rare cases purchasing brand new hard drive might be the only right solution. Be careful, however, when such message appears in front of you. Nowadays there are very many fake HDD programs that claim to be some superb system optimizers. They would present many fake system error messages, including the one about the hard drive clusters of your PC being damaged. System Check virus is the good example of such bogus fake HDD tool, and here is the message that it originates:
When one of many fake hard drive defragmenters attacks a computer it starts to brainwash users with its various bogus system errors. It would not seize to tell about memory, hard drive and GPU problems. Nothing reported by this malware tool should be treated as serious by you. The program simply tries to convince you that your computer has so many bugs that you need to buy the full version of this fake system optimizer in order to have all those alleged errors repaired. However, purchasing the registered or commercial version of this bogus system tool is a totally useless experience on user’s part. Such programs are not able to fix real (serious) bugs.
Be careful when you receive the message that your computer’s RAM memory speed decreased significantly and may cause a system failure. The chances are that this warning is a fake one. This means that what it tells is not true. Check what program originates this warning. It this is some legitimate and reputable system optimization tool then fulfill its instructions and /or recommendations. If this warning is reported by programs like System Check and similar malwares make sure to completely ignore it. System Check is the malware application that presents quite a bunch of fabricated system warnings. The problems reported by it are unreal. They are not peculiar to your computer. The message described above is similarly fictitious. Here is the quote from it:
The family of bogus hard drive defragmenters and fake system optimizers like System Check are known to produce various types of fabricated system error messages. Primarily they have to do with hard drive, memory and other system problems. Nevertheless, all of such notifications you encounter are fake. They are the warnings of unreal problems if they are produced by the rogue programs like System Check. The notice about your RAM memory temperature being 83 degrees is also completely fictitious in its essence. Here is the quote of what the message says:
You need to be very careful when you see the message that the boot sector of the hard drive is damaged. This notification could be either true or false one. The above-mentioned problem is not something to be surprised about. Like all items in this world, hard drives tend to get older and deteriorate as time goes by. If you do have such problem with your hard drive sectors you might run some reliable system defragmenter to repair and fix the bugs. In some fewer cases you might need to purchase brand new hard drive and reinstall Windows OS onto it. But be careful! Nowadays there are viruses that mask themselves as some real hard drive defragmenters and system optimization tools, whereas they are all fake and must not be trusted by users. They would present the bunch of fictitious system error notifications, popups and other warnings, including the one about the boot sector of your PC’s hard drive being damaged. These rogue system optimizers should be avoided and not treated seriously.
System Check virus tells a lot of untrue facts about the system status of your workstation. There are very many fake system and hard drive errors it claims to detect on your computer. None of them is actually real. The problem of your hard drive not corresponding to system requests could be real and quite a serious one, but this would never be the case if it is reported by System Check malicious software. The aim of this message originated by virus is to make you really scared about the state of your PC. The rogue software developers prepared this rogue system optimizer in order to make you believe that it is some excellent solution you’ve found to solve all those fake and unreal errors reported by it. However, the malware makers pursue one goal, that is to earn money by means of fraudulent techniques and methods. Their program called System Check (and very many other similar examples) would try to prompt you into purchasing its licensed or commercial version, allegedly able to fix those fabricated bugs stated by it. By actually purchasing this rogue system optimizing tool you are not only losing your money, by the way. You are supporting the cyber frauds and criminals for elaboration of other types of malwares, even more severe and aggressive. So, do not trust any statements you encounter from such fake hard drive defragmenters, including the fake message stating that your PC’s hard drive does not correspond to system requests.
Hard drive of any computer, either desktop or laptop, may have certain types of errors and problems. The hardware part of our PCs is not eternal. This sometimes results in various malfunctions and problems. In certain cases radical measures like purchasing another hard drive are necessary. If you store too much information on your disk (like movies, pictures, music and other files that might occupy too much space) there is a risk that you hard drive would become overburdened with lots of information and simply become unable to store other data. You might consider purchasing another more powerful and brand new computer or obtaining extra hard drive (additional one). Thus, the problem of your hard drive space running low is not something unusual.
The problem of your hard drive rotational speed decreased by 20 percent is nothing but the fake error reported by fake hard drive defragmenters like System Check. There are many other similar viruses in the cyber realm. All of them target innocent PC users who need their computers for work, school, correspondence with friends, relatives, etc. But suddenly here comes the virus in front of them presenting itself as system optimizer. It would modify the system registry to be launched with every Windows startup. You would see its interface each time you turn your computer on. This malware sample comes to your computer without your consent or approval. It does not take your personal choice into consideration. Moreover, after successful infiltration it totally hijacks your computer, making it almost entirely inoperable. Its malicious system amendments would result in your files and folders being hidden as well as the icons and shortcuts at your desktop and quick launch items. In the same manner you would hardly notice any program shortcut in their list on your computer. They would all be similarly hidden (except for System Check icons, of course). Do not worry, they are not removed or deleted. They simply have hidden attribute now and were relocated by System Check malware to some folders specifically designated and created by it. There is the opportunity to restore them all back, and we will tell you more about it in the next paragraph.
