System Repair Virus is a fake antivirus that is programmed to display alerts reporting hard drive errors. Although its design looks very professional and it uses various tricks to convince you that your computer is badly damaged, the program is nothing more than a scam. You should not give your credit card information and purchase its full version by any means. Do not forget that cyber criminals are behind System Repair Virus and they will not only cheat you by selling a worthless thing but also get your credit card information.
One can get infected with this fake antivirus when Trojans are downloaded together with untrustworthy shareware or freeware. Once malware is infiltrated it creates new Registry keys that are dropped on the Program Files and System32 directories. After these modifications are done, you will start seeing messages similar to those below:
System Repair Diagnostics
Windows detected a hard disk error.
A problem with the hard drive sectors has been detected. It is recommended to download the following sertified software to fix the detected hard drive problems. Do you want to download recommended software?

Remember, these or any other messages you see displayed by System Repair Virus are false. Your computer has no problems listed there. Yet do not ignore the fact that PC is infected and most likely your current computer security programs are deactivated. It means that the longer you wait removing System Repair Virus the higher is the danger that your machine might get infected with more malware. We recommend using Spyhunter for this fake antivirus removal. Perform a full system scan for the second time after malware is removed to make sure no malicious files are left.
