Although it does not cost anything to install PCBooster, you should not even think about acquiring this useless, potentially unwanted program. Most computer users download this program because they are convinced that it can clean their operating systems within minutes. As you know, junk files and unwanted software leftovers can slow down your operating system, and this is an issue that PCBooster promises to fix. We would not rush you to delete this potentially unwanted program if it was useful and reliable. Unfortunately, you need to remove PCBooster as soon as possible, before it tricks you and jeopardizes your virtual security.
According to the information provided at pcboostertool.com, PCBooster can repair computer’s issues, remove junk files and cookies, enhance security, detect malicious files, and optimize the system’s speed. These features are listed to convince computer users that PCBooster is a trustworthy program, when, in reality, it is not. In fact, this potentially unwanted program is a clone of A1PCCleaner, Fix My PC, and Tech Hubby, all of which are PUPs that require immediate removal. Even though these programs are attractive and offer free services, they can do more harm than good, which is exactly why you should delete them.
If you do not delete PCBooster in time, this potentially unwanted program could trick you into communicating with unreliable parties. Once this PUP is done scanning your operating system, a “Fix it” button appears suggesting to remove all junk files and fix errors. However, if you click this button, you are introduced to a pop-up asking to call an allegedly certified technician at 1-860-269-6829. Even though contacting the so-called Helpline should be toll-free, we cannot guarantee this, which is one of the reasons you should not call it. Of course, most computer users realize that they need to remove PCBooster as soon as they encounter fake scanner results and unreliable pop-up suggestions.
Not all computer users realize that PCBooster is an unreliable program even when this PUP continuously displays the same fake security notifications via browsers. Although these fake notifications automatically disappear within a few minutes, this is enough to convince some users that they need the help of experts, especially since these browser notifications cannot be closed manually. Conveniently, PCBooster provides a number that should provide the assistance needed. You might lose money on the call itself, and you could be tricked into purchasing services or downloading other unreliable software by people on the other end of the line, which is why we believe that you should ignore the helpline and remove PCBooster ASAP.
PCBooster has an uninstaller, and chances are that you will eliminate this potentially unwanted program completely by uninstalling it. Once you perform the steps introduced below, make sure you install a malware scanner to see if no leftovers were left behind. It is most important to run this scanner to make sure that you do not need to delete other threats. If you find that your operating system is infected with malicious programs, you have to eliminate them as soon as possible. We also want to remind you that if you do not implement authentic security software to protect your PC, malicious programs could attack again and again.
