Are you concerned about the health of your operating system? Well, you might think that TurboDiagnosis can be the right choice for you. Unfortunately, this is a useless application that operates in a suspicious way, and that is why it is mostly considered a potentially unwanted program (PUP). There are several things that make this app questionable. If you understand these, you can protect your computer from potential security risks. That is why our aim is to share with you what we have learnt by observing and researching this potentially unwanted program in our internal lab. Leaving a PUP on your computer does not only occupy space unnecessarily, but it can also cause different issues. Removing TurboDiagnosis is the best you can do in order to preserve the integrity of your system.
The first thing that is suspicious about this application is that it has no official website or any site where it could be downloaded directly from as a standalone program. Instead, most users find TurboDiagnosis bundled together with other freeware applications. These are also potentially unwanted programs, so by installing TurboDiagnosis you might let a whole bunch of useless apps onto your system if you are not careful enough. It pays to be attentive during the installation of such a package since you may save yourself the trouble of dealing with unwanted software later, if you opt out in time. But, if you have already installed the whole package, you would be better off deleting TurboDiagnosis and all the other related PUPs.
TurboDiagnosis sounds like a program that can quickly and efficiently set up a diagnosis about your system. This would be great if this was a reliable piece of software. Unfortunately, this PUP returns questionable results with regard to the level of PC issues, invalid registry keys, junk files, and Internet junk. Of course, you will most probably end up with a high level of threat in all these areas, which is made even scarier by the “Your PC may be at risk!” label. This program has a very primitive and simple interface, which does not really speak of professionalism. What it offers after you run the fake scan is a call to an advertised number. It is possible that the creators might make money through these calls, so you can expect long calls. Keep in mind that a lot of people might also get scammed over the phone to disclose personal and other details to so-called “technicians”. This also questions the intention behind this software. In order to be safe, we recommend removing TurboDiagnosis.
The sad news about TurboDiagnosis is that you might encounter some problems if you choose to remove it manually. Usually PUPs are easy to uninstall via Control Panel. But, in this case, it is not so. There is a good chance that TurboDiagnosis will not even show up in the installed programs list, which is a rather shady behavior. If you are lucky and it appears in your list, you can use our guide below to uninstall it. If this PUP is not in the list, you can try to locate it in the Program Files directory and manually delete it from there. But to be honest, no matter which manual method you go for, it is quite likely that there will be leftovers and registry entries that also need to be dealt with. This is the reason why we recommend installing a reliable antimalware application, such as SpyHunter, which can automatically set things straight and restore your system’s health. This security tool will also keep your computer protected from potential future attacks if you keep it updated and activated.
