Instead of targeting users with the common “infections” scam, this virus targets users with a fake system hard drive malfunction scam. System Restore Virus attempts to fool users into thinking that their computer hard drive is malfunctioning, and that it can fix it. Of course the alerts are fake, as well as it claiming that it can fix something. System Restore Virus is in no way a repair program, it only wants to look like one.

System Restore Virus begins its life as a trojan infection, usually installed while the computer user is not browsing the web safely or many other reasons. Once the trojan has infected a users’ computer, it begins with numerous alerts in an effort to convince the user to download System Restore as a solution. If the user agrees to download the fake System Restore a scan is run and fake results are displayed.

Under no circumstance should you buy System Restore Virus. It is a fake and fraudulent program.
