How about if we told you that there are multiple programs out there that only pretend they can help you solve your computer security-related problems? PC-BOLT is one of such applications. The main problem with such programs is that they cannot be trusted, and they might as well try to scam you, pushing you into paying money for a service that does not exist. It is obvious that you have to remove PC-BOLT from your computer; otherwise, you might suffer severe consequences. One of the biggest problems with this application is that it cannot be removed via Control Panel, but that problem can be easily solved if you check out the instructions below this description.
It is not exactly clear where this application comes from. Unlike most of the other potentially unwanted programs, PC-BOLT does not have an official homepage, so users cannot download the program willingly. Even if it is available for download at some third-party website, it is very likely that users do not understand they are installing this application until it is already too late. So if this program suddenly pops into your screen “out of nowhere,” the chances are that you downloaded and installed it with some other freeware application. Think about it carefully. Have you downloaded some program from a file-sharing site recently? Have you clicked a pop-up on a random website? If so, then this is probably how this application managed to enter your computer.
Now, there should be no question as to whether PC-BOLT is able to perform real computer security functions. Even our researchers were completely frustrated with the application because it is extremely buggy and crashes all the time. Here you can stop and think for yourself: what use would you have of a program that does not even properly? The answer is obvious: none. Not to mention that the application may also expose you to particular security threats that must be addressed as well.
For example, PC-BOLT should run a fake system scan and then indicate multiple errors in your system. In order to fix those errors, the program will urge you to call the 1-888-451-1606 number. However, calling this number will not solve your problem because you DO NOT have one. It is very likely that by trying to call that number, you will encounter scammers who want to steal your money. Therefore, do not even think of calling anyone because you have to deal with this intruder in another way.
You will need to locate the program’s entries in the Windows registry and delete them manually. The program’s files are located in the Temporary directory, and the files have random names, so it might harder to find them. However, our security experts say that once you delete the Registry entries, the program will be disabled and, technically, you no longer need to delete those files. However, you should consider investing in a licensed antispyware application that would delete those files for you. What’s more, a full computer scan with a legitimate antispyware program will help you determine whether you have more unwanted applications installed, and that is very important if you want to keep your system safe.
