Fake Microsoft Windows warning description
Windows detected a hard disk problem
Scanning for hard drive errors…
Hard drive scan helps to detect and resolve hard drive problems and system performance issues.
While the real alerts loaded by Windows operating system are worth your attention, the ones that advertise some kind of software are a sign of computer infection. The “Windows detected a hard disk problem” warning is actually loaded by rogue programs in order to trick you into giving your money away. The programs are reported to be System Defragmenter, Smart Defragmenter, HDD Defragmenter, Quick Deragmenter and Ultra Defragger. None of them is a real system optimization tool: they are meant to milk money. Remove the rogue programs for your computer to function normally again.
