Not every program that claims to be beneficial is that way, and High PC Booster proves that. It is not malicious, and you would not be putting your virtual security on the line by downloading it – at least it does not look like it right now – but it is NOT beneficial, and you would be wasting time and money by getting involved with it. This program – which is classified as a PUP, or “potentially unwanted program” – was created to make you believe that its services are worth 19.99 USD. It is not. Although it works to some degree, you certainly do not want to make the payment before you know exactly how this PUP operates. Whether or not you have paid this money already, you should continue reading to learn all about the program, and why we suggest deleting High PC Booster.
According to our research, High PC Booster could be spread in software bundles along with unreliable and maybe even malicious programs. Malicious software distributors often place more attractive tools at the front to conceal less popular and transparent pieces of software. The PUP could be used as an attraction as well because it claims to protect against malware, as well as clean the system to enhance its performance. Unfortunately, this is how malicious programs could find their way into an operating system. If you have downloaded High PC Booster via any source other than the official download site – which we discuss next – you MUST install a malware scanner. Install a trustworthy and up-to-date one, and malicious programs will not be able to hide from you. Obviously, if any are found, remove them right away.
The official download site for High PC Booster is highpcbooster.com. Needless to say, it shows the PUP in the most attractive light, and so if you happen to land on this page, you are likely to be convinced that the program is irreplaceable. The website offers a toll-free helpline number (1-800-873-5609), and you have to be cautious about that. Although that is not a scam number, you need to understand that the parties answering your call are interested only in selling you the product, and they could give you all kinds of information to make you do that. Are you surprised that you need to pay for High PC Booster? Yes, the scanner of this program is free, but you will have all “issues” cleaned only if you pay. Well, here’s a question: Do you want to pay for the services of this PUP? It is most likely that you do not.
High PC Booster can clear your recycle bin, delete temporary files, eliminate junk, and do other things that, allegedly, should make your system run faster and all around better. Unfortunately, that is not exactly what would happen. Sure, you want your recycle bin emptied and all junk files eliminated, but we advise doing that yourself. You could also install software to do it, but if you are interested in that, it is suggested that you look for tools that could offer you something more besides the removal of unimportant things. Also, you should not expect High PC Booster to delete malware. In fact, it is unlikely that this program would be even capable of detecting malicious components; at least, not all of them. For that, we recommend employing trusted anti-malware software.
Uninstall High PC Booster, and this potentially unwanted program will be out of the picture. If other PUPs exist, you might have to employ other methods to get rid of them, and if you are dealing with malware, you might have to employ anti-malware software right away. You should not be afraid to invest in it because it can help you clean your operating system from threats that already exist, as well as ensure full-time protection against other unreliable pieces in the future. If you do not use anti-malware tools, you need to be ready to face malware and PUPs at any given time. Also, if you decide to stick with manual High PC Booster removal, make sure you perform a full system scan once more to see if no leftovers exist.
