Data Restore enters the system via Trojans and infected websites. The program runs system scanner and later on reports critical errors detected on your system. It claims that some of your private data might be lost because of the lack of free space, RAM memory usage, etc. The truth is that it is fake information and Data Restore only wants you to believe your system is infected. Data Restore will offer you purchasing a full version of its program with a promise that this will fix everything. However, its real intention is to receive your money, but in return you won’t get anything. Do not buy this rogue program.

It won’t remove the virus but hopefully will allow to run malware removal tools, for example Spyware Doctor. In order to stop all malicious activities on your computer you should remove it as soon as possible. You can remove Data Restore manually too, but remember that manual removal guide was made for the rogue program only and do not include other possible malware, rootkits. That’s why you should scan your computer with Spyware Doctor or other anti-spyware software.
