Data Recovery has been classified as a fictitious system optimizer, which is usually distributed with the assistance of third-party installers bundled with other Windows-compatible programs. Due to the fact that Data Recovery is compatible with the three major web browsers – IE, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome, the extension could be installed on any of them. If this case with your PC, you are strongly advised to locate and delete the adware application as soon as you notice it on your virtual machine.

How did Data Recovery get installed on your PC?

Data Recovery shows up as S.M.A.R.T. Check and S.M.A.R.T. Repair tools, which will pretend to detect and remove infections from your PC. These tools will warn you with non-existent HDD problems and will offer you a completely fake tool, supposedly able to remove any problem-causing elements.
