Pc Health Aid
Pc Health Aid can appear on your computer seemingly out of thin air since this alleged PC optimizer may spread on the net under questionable conditions. Of course, this software is also available officially on its promotional website but finding it spreading with malicious infections raises some questions of reliability. We do not want to claim that this is an application with malicious intentions or that it would mean direct danger to your PC. Still, we need to point out that this is definitely not the best quality and most reliable PC optimizer you can find on the web for the price it is offered. In fact, we have found that this is just another potentially unwanted program (PUP) following the footsteps of Advance System Care, Super System Optimizer, and other similar low-quality applications. We do not believe that it is a good idea to keep a program on board that is not really useful or reliable. In fact, we recommend that you remove Pc Health Aid and all other questionable programs you can detect on your system.
As we have mentioned before, you can download this PUP from its official website at pchealthaid.com. This page looks very similar to that of all other questionable PC optimizers. Of course, this site makes you feel like you have found the best and the most useful tool possible, but we would doubt that. As a matter of fact, if your PC is protected by an up-to-date malware remover, it may flag the installer and refer to it either as a “potential threat” or “multiple threats,” which does not sound too promising. Our research shows that practically most well-known security applications detect this software as a PUP. Now, that is really not good news if you find it on board and you have no clue how or when you installed it. This could be the right time to make a decision and delete Pc Health Aid from your PC; and, you have not heard the “best” yet.
Most likely the worst bit of news about the presence of this PUP on your computer is that it could be found spreading in malicious freeware bundles. If this is how you installed it too, there is a good chance that you do not actually recall doing so. Such a bundle may contain a number of different PUPs and malware infections alongside legitimate free software. It is possible that you target this free software and try to download it from a questionable source, such as a suspicious torrent or freeware page, and do not realize that instead of a standalone file, you download a whole package filled with threats. You should know that when you are installing such a bundle, however misleading or deceptive the installer may be, most often you should be prompted about the probable browser setting changes, and the list of the additional tools to be installed. This step may only be revealed when you choose the custom installation method at the beginning of the installation wizard if there is such an option at all.
You can also download such infectious packages when your computer is infected by adware programs. Such an infection is capable of spying on you to trick you with customized third-party ads, which could redirect you to malicious pages like fake software updates and drop a bundle onto your system. Hopefully it is clear now why we say that you need to scan your system with a proper online malware scanner right after you delete Pc Health Aid; leaving any suspicious programs on board could be a big mistake if your virtual security matters to you.
The free version of this program is virtually useless to you because apart from scanning your system and displaying a number of supposed system issues it does nothing much really. In order for you to be able clean your system and fix the alleged issues, you need to buy the full version for $29.95, which is a one-time cost but still quite a high price for an application with such limited features and functionality. We suggest that you search the web for a better and more reliable tool because there are lots of PC optimizers or other programs that can boost up your PC and protect it, too. We have found that the free version of this software is simply there to push you to buy the full version. In fact, when you are on the purchase page, you are also offered Disk Tools Plus (disktoolsplus.com) for “just” $9.95, which is indeed a monthly subscription but you may think that it is a one-time payment. Also, when you close this window, another one opens with a half-price deal on Pc Health Aid. This can be quite confusing again because there is actually a 30-day free trial involved and after that you will be charged monthly. All in all, we believe that if you want to “accelerate your system speed,” “stabilize your PC performance,” and “protect and secure your data,” you should remove Pc Health Aid and find a better quality product online.
If you still have this questionable PUP on your system, we suggest that you use its working uninstaller that you can activate via Control Panel once you identify it in the installed programs list. Please follow our guide below if you need help with this. Clearly, eliminating this PUP will not necessarily be enough for you to enjoy an entirely secure system and online experience. Therefore, we suggest that you use a reliable anti-malware program to automatically remove all potential threats and protect your PC from future malicious attacks.
