PC Health Boost Description
PC Health Boost is a potentially unwanted program. PC Health Boost may be associated with adware, browser hijackers and other types of potentially unwanted programs designed to create toolbars on your Web browser, redirect your search results and cause pop-up advertisements. Various computer users have reported that these types of unwanted programs have caused pop-up advertisements selling PC Health Boost, marketed as a legitimate system optimization tool created by a ‘Microsoft Partner.’ Although the advertisement marketing PC Health Boost ‘highly recommends this download’, ESG security analysts have found several reasons to be worried regarding PC Health Boost.
The Worrying Aspects of PC Health Boost
There are several characteristics of PC Health Boost that just don’t advertisement up. For example, it is pretty clear that PC Health Boost is not actually a Microsoft product nor is it developed by any of its affiliates. It is also important to know that fake registry cleaners and system optimization programs are among the most common types of misleading programs. Although PC Health Boost does not seem to be outright malicious, PC Health Boost does cause the affected computer to show symptoms typically associated with rogue security programs. For example, PC Health Boost will always exaggerate any supposed issues on the computer, notifying the computer user that PC Health Boost has found dozens of problems, all of which not may be entirely legitimate.
Is Using PC Health Boost in Your Computer’s Best Interest?
Unlike many rogue security applications, technically, PC Health Boost isn’t really lying. However, PC Health Boost is definitely exaggerating quite a bit to convince computer users to purchase its ‘full version.’ PC Health Boost will cause certain ‘issues’ that aren’t actually problematic, such as files moved from run lists or issues with SQL and label everything that is technically an error to make its warnings scarier. Malware researchers have also received reports that PC Health Boost may not do a very good job of healing your computer, occasionally deleting essential files and causing more damage than good.
