PC Health Kit

PC Health Kit Description

PC Health Kit is a rogue Registry cleaner that creates fake alerts and deliberately-inaccurate scans as a means of defrauding the PC’s user – by first detecting a series of fake infections and numerous related computer problems, and then asking for a premium registration fee before PC Health Kit can repair your computer. Like any similar form of scamware, PC Health Kit doesn’t have any functions focused on actually helping PC Health Kit delete malware or repair your system, and SpywareRemove.com malware researchers always discourage spending money on PC Health Kit. Any problems related to the presence of PC Health Kit can be resolved by deleting PC Health Kit and all associated PC threats, which usually is most easily enacted through the anti-malware-scanning functions of a true anti-malware program.

Of course, SpywareRemove.com malware experts easily verified that PC Health Kit’s warnings and scans are both fake and don’t play any part in detecting any kind of legitimate system errors.

The Cure for the Fake Doctor that Ails Your Computer

Rogue Registry optimizers like PC Health Kit never are advantageous to keep on your computer, and may enable additional attacks besides the one noted above – most commonly, attacks that block critical security software, lower your computer’s security settings or hijack your web browser. SpywareRemove.com malware researchers do suggest removing PC Health Kit with all appropriate haste, but also encourage using a suitable anti-malware program that has the best chance of finding and uprooting all of PC Health Kit’s components.

PC Health Kit and similar PC threats often are installed by such methods as spam e-mail attachments, fake online scanners and drive-by-download exploits. The latter, in particular, do not necessarily show any symptoms before installing their malicious software, and maintaining all appropriate web-browsing security features should be acknowledged as one of the main ways of avoiding a source of a PC Health Kit infection.
