Fix My PC
Fix My PC is a potentially unwanted program that presents itself as a useful application, ready to fix your registry errors. Unfortunately, that is very far from the truth because the program was created to lure you into spending your money for nothing. If you care about your system’s security and your financial stability, you need to remove Fix My PC as soon as possible. Although this program cannot rip you off directly, it might as well be related to a number of potential security threats that sooner or later would find their way into your system.
Fix My PC comes from the same group of potentially unwanted system optimizers as A1PCCleaner. Such applications usually offer users to fix registry errors that occur due to constant installation and removal of various programs. However, when one cannot download a program directly from its official website, it should be enough of a proof that a program is far from being reliable. As you can probably guess, we were not able to download Fix My PC from fixmypc247.com, no matter how many times we clicked the Download Free button. Consequently, it is not surprising that some users think Fix My PC is a dangerous virus because they often have no idea how this application gets installed on their computers.
Chances are you have downloaded Fix My PC in a software package from a file-sharing or a torrent website. Remember all those pop-ups that offer you to update your media player or to scan your computer for free? Clicking them eventually leads to adware and potentially unwanted software installations. What’s more, downloading freeware from third-party file hosting sites also is not as safe as you might think. Third-party downloaders and installers often come with additional apps the users neither need nor want, and if they are not attentive enough during the installation, the likes of Fix My PC end up being installed on the target computer.
Fix My PC is extremely annoying because it generates a pop-up on your browser that appears every half an hour. It is impossible to close this pop-up manually, as it disappears automatically, but the point is that this notification tries to convince users they are severely infected with malware:
Needless to say, scanning your computer with Fix My PC would not solve anything as this program cannot help you remove malware or fix any registry errors. The only thing you definitely have to remove right now is Fix My PC itself. However, after manual removal via Control Panel, do not forget to scan your computer with the SpyHunter free scanner because there might be a lot more unwanted applications on your system than you think.
