You may find Pc Health Aid on your system and wonder how this questionable software has sneaked onto your computer. In fact, this is just another low-quality PC optimizer. We have seen plenty of very similar potentially unwanted programs (PUP) in the past years emerging, such as TotalSystemCare, Super System Optimizer, and SystemKeeperPro. If you find any of these programs on board, we suggest that you remove them because they are really of no use to you. The free version of this PUP is practically totally useless and seems that it is only used by the authors to make you want to buy the full product. However, even that would not give you proper functionality to boost your PC and protect it from similar and more dangerous malware threats. Since this questionable program may bring malicious software installers onto your system, we believe that you should not trust it for a second. In fact, we advise you to remove Pc Health Aid as soon as you can.
Although the likelihood of your finding pchealthaid.com, the official promotional site, on the web is quite low, we still need to mention this source for downloading this PUP. Try to run a web search on “Pc Health Aid” first. Usually, when a program has a name with such general words in it, there is no way that you would find the official site on the first pages. Well, unless this name triggers malware hunter pages and your search keywords match a certain potentially unwanted program like in this case. Right on the first results page you will find a number of links leading to websites talking about why you should remove Pc Health Aid as a PUP. Hopefully, you see now why it is so important to double-check an application before downloading it.
But this PUP most likely does not only rely on its official site for spreading all over the place. In fact, we have found out that it also may be traveling in freeware bundles. However, this ride has other undesirable passengers as well, including malware infections like ad-supported programs, Trojans, browser hijackers, fake alerts, and more. If you install such a package, your operating system could be under multiple attacks in no time. Of course, we are not saying that this PUP itself is a real and direct threat to your computer but we also cannot confirm that it is beneficial to you in any sense.
There are basically two ways for you to infect your computer with a bundle. First, you may visit shady file-sharing websites and try to download free files and programs, or you simply click on corrupt third-party content there. Second, you may be exposed to such questionable ads or links generated by malware on board. This clearly presumes that your system has to be infected with adware or browser hijackers. As you can see, none of these cases are too fortunate and looks like you may have some other, more serious malware issues on your PC. This is why we believe that the best solution for you to restore your security level is to use a trustworthy online malware scanner to identify all possible threats on your computer after you delete Pc Health Aid.
As we have already mentioned, you cannot use the free version of this PUP for anything really; well, apart from running a system scan. One of the characteristics of similarly questionable PC optimizers is that you might be presented with false scan results in order to make you believe that there are dozens or hundreds of system errors that need immediate fixing. However, the free version cannot help you with that and you have to buy the full version if you want to fix these errors. Most likely there are lots of users who would fall for this marketing trick and rush to pay 29.95 dollars for the “savior.” What they may not realize is that this software may not be the best choice when it comes to protecting their PC and stabilizing the system. This PUP also promotes another questionable software called Disk Tools Plus (disktoolsplus.com) when you decide to purchase it. What is really annoying and probably easily confusing is that this other product is offered for 9.95 dollars but this is a monthly payment which will be deducted from your account and you may not even realize it in time. After testing this software we have arrived at the conclusion that you should remove it if you prefer to use a computer that only hosts trustworthy and useful programs for best safety.
It is really not complicated to delete Pc Health Aid from your system because all you need to do is uninstall it via Control Panel. If you are not familiar with the necessary steps, we offer you our instructions below. You need to be aware though, that this will not make your PC all safe and clean. We recommend that you make sure that all potential threat sources are found and dealt with similarly. If you do not think you can do this manually, you can always use a reliable anti-malware application like SpyHunter. But even if your system is protected with such powerful security software, you cannot forget about regularly updating all your programs and drivers.
