Posted: May 22, 2009

PCenter is scareware posing as anti-spyware software. Like other scareware, PCenter spoofs system scans and alerts to trick you into thinking you are infected with badware. What's the point? PCenter wants you to waste your money on the "licensed" version of PCenter.

If you see a PCenter popup, the only thing you've got to worry about is your sanity. PCenter alerts go on and on and on, but likely the only threat on your system is PCenter.

    Wow... took me 2 and a half minutes to end and destroy... who makes it that easy? I only needed to end the process "Agent"under "HP_Owner" and a little bit later the PCenter app closed, and I found all it was in, and deleted. Good luck to all who have this virus. It's something you can't tell is there, until its on your start toolbar. Thennn you still have no idea what it's doing, its not like Antivirus 2008 which I had annnnd that took like 2 hours to get rid of...
