Remove Windows 7 Fix virus

Windows 7 Fix is a fake computer optimization software that is a clone of Windows XP Fix malware. It displays false information that your computer has a lot of critical problems with hard disks, memory, etc. It "detects" these problems in order to trick you into purchasing so-called full version of the software.

Windows 7 Fix infiltrate computers through the use of trojans. When the program is installed, it configures itself to run every time when you start Windows.

Once started, Windows 7 Fix will hide all files and folders on your system disk. Next, the rogue will imitate a system scan and list a lot of system errors. Some of the errors are:
- Drive C initialization error
- Read time of hard drive clusters less than 500 ms
- 32% of HDD space is unreadable
- Bad sectors on hard drive or damaged file allocation table
Remember, the scan results are a fake, this malware is unable to detect any problems. So you should never trust this fake application and ignore all that it will display you.

Moreover, while Windows 7 Fix is running, it will display various fake warnings. Some of the warnings:
Critical Error! RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.
Critical Error! Hard Drive not found. Missing hard drive.
Critical Error! Windows can't find hard disk space. Hard drive error
Critical Error! Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.

As you can see, Windows 7 Fix pretends to be a legitimate PC optimization tool but, in reality, it is a scam. You should remove this malware as soon as you notice it installed on the system. Follow the Windows 7 Fix removal instructions.
