PC Bug Repair Description
PC Bug Repair is a rogue anti-malware scanner that pretends to find spyware and other high-level threats on your PC while PC Bug Repair makes no actual attempts at accurate threat detection or removal. Along with its fake warning messages, PC Bug Repair will encourage you to spend money on purchasing the full version of its software, supposedly so that PC Bug Repair can remove the nonexistent PC threats that PC Bug Repair detects. Our malware researchers recommend that you remove PC Bug Repair with an anti-malware program, just as you’d do for any Trojan or other type of intentionally harmful program.
PC Bug Repair – a Specialist in Camouflage and Distraction
PC Bug Repair should always be treated as malicious software in and of itself, but this may not be obvious in an initial inspection. Like other rogue anti-malware programs, PC Bug Repair attempts to look like a product that has the ability to detect errors and infections on your PC, and PC Bug Repair’s scanner features will always display PC threats such as members of the Zlob family regardless of whether or not they’re really on your computer.
While PC Bug Repair claims that PC Bug Repair has removed some of these issues, PC Bug Repair recommends that you spend money on its software to finalize the deletion of some high-level PC threats. Our malware researchers warn against spending money on PC Bug Repair, which is unable to find any type of badware or solve any form of hard drive-related problem even in its purchased version.
Getting the Real Bug Out of Your System
PC Bug Repair or PC threats that install PC Bug Repair on your computer may also cause other side effects that are common to fake anti-malware programs. These include malfunctioning security-related programs, browser redirects and system settings that are changed to make your PC vulnerable to attacks by other sources. Our malware experts recommend that you disable PC Bug Repair and related PC threats by booting into Safe Mode before you make any attempt to scan your computer for PC Bug Repair’s removal.
While PC Bug Repair’s personal distribution vectors haven’t yet been analyzed, similar types of scamware are often installed by Trojans that are included in fake media updates for movie players or codecs. By always procuring software updates strictly from reputable websites, you cut off a major means of distribution for fake anti-malware scanners like PC Bug Repair and members of other families (such as WinWebSec and Win32/FakeVimes).
