Data Restore Removal Guide

Do you know what Data Restore is?

Data Restore is a fake optimization application which emulates the workings of a real defragmenter. It derives from the same family of the well-known rogue Data Repair defragmenter. This rogue will do everything in its power to appear legitimate to its victims, but the truth is Data Restore has no ability to detect or fix any type of error on the system and is only in it to rip consumers off.

This rogue makes use of various established forms of infection which range from using bogus online malware scanners and seditious browser hijackers. As of late it has also been reported that Data Restore makes use of infected online flash ads to root its infection into its victims’ PCs.

Once Data Restore manages to securely ingrain itself into the PC it starts its attack by generating a fake system scan which will result in fake notifications of nonexistent errors crippling the PC. The user will also start to receive bogus system notifications informing him of the same thing:

Critical Error!
Damaged hard drive clusters detected. Private data is at risk.

Critical Error
RAM memory usage is critically high. RAM memory failure.

Critical Error
Hard drive critical error. Run a system diagnostic utility to check your hard disk drive for errors. Windows can’t find hard disk space. Hard drive error.

If you look closely at the above fake notifications you will see that Data Restore is indeed a fake application, as its messages state that Windows is unable to find hard disk space. Had this been the case then the PC would not even be able to operate at all.

Other symptoms Data Restore will instigate range from users being unable to execute applications on the system, poor system performance and blocked Internet connections. Enter the following activation key into the rogue to disable these irritating symptoms:


When all is said and done Data Restore is unable to live up to any of its over embellished promises. In order to protect the PC and restore its security, get rid of Data Restore for good with the help of a powerful antispyware application.

In non techie terms:

Data Restore is a fake defragger only out to rip its victims off. Limit the damage this rogue will be able to cause the system and destroy Data Restore immediately.
