RegistryDoctor2008

No Comments

RegistryDoctor2008 is a new rogue registry cleaner – a corrupt Windows registry error fixer, which uses trojans, such as the infamous Zlob or Vundo, to enter the system and spread it’s disinformation. This parasite will flood the user with popups and fake system notifications, claiming that there are potentially dangerous errors in his Windows registry, which can best be removed by using RegistryDoctor2008′s “licensed version”.

RegistryDoctor2008 fails at proving it’s legitimacy on more counts than one: there is no information on the company behind it whatsoever, the rogue’s website provides no contact details and the payments are handled using an illegitimate system.

RegistryDoctor2008 is a scam and should be treated as such: do NOT download or buy it and block it’s homepage using your HOSTS file.
