Live PC Care Image

Live PC Care enters a system via stealthy Trojans that are unknowingly downloaded or executed by users. Once inside, the Trojan creates random files on the system, that are later detected as parasites when a fake system scan is conducted. Live PC Care will bombard a system with fake scan reports, pop-ups and virus alerts in order to convince a victim that there are multiple infections present on the system. The user will then be informed that the only solution to the problem is to purchase the full version of Live PC Care. Live PC Care, a member of the FakeVimes family is a useless program that will do more harm than good to your computer system.

I am not computer literate by any means and I downloaded some virus (I guess) and Live PC told my that they were the only ones who could repair and fix my machine. Like a fool, I paid them the $50.00 and my machine is still down, I am unable to retrive valuable records and the computer is so slow when it does function, it takes 20 minutes just to get to my e-mail. Do yourself a big favor, DON"T DO BUSINESS WITH THESE CROOKED SCAMMERS. The damage they have done to my computer is beyond repair. If anyone wants to use my secret removal ID number, it is
When I complained (over the net, they have no land phones) they upped my 6 month membership to a life time membership at no charge, just in case I want another computer ruined in the years to come. If you use these crooks to work on your machine, you deserve exactly what you will surely get, "ripped off".

It's your choice. Joel La Rocque
