Remove File Restore virus

File Restore is a fake computer optimization software that displays fake error messages and alerts that your computer has a lot of critical problems with hard disks, memory, etc. It uses this misleading technique of most rogue programs in order to trick you into purchasing so-called full version of the software. Don’t pay for System Check malware. Read a guide written below to see instructions how it can be removed automatically.

What File Restore virus does

File Restore from the same family of malware as File Recovery, System Fix, Data Recovery, Master Utilities, PC Repair, System Repair, etc. It is distributed with the help of trojans. Thus, this malware can be installed without you noticing that. It does not require your agreement!

When installed, the rogue will perform a fake system and detect 11 critical errors. Some of the errors:
- 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.

While File Restore 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.
However, the rogue just uses the fake alerts to make the scam look more realistic. You should ignore all of them.

As you can see, File Restore 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 File Restore virus removal instructions.
