PC Health Aid

PC Health Aid Description

PC Health Aid is promoted as a system optimizer at pchealthaid.com that can improve the performance of your machine by removing unnecessary files, cleaning your Registry, and making tweaks to hidden settings on Windows. Computer users can download a trial version of PC Health Aid from pchealthaid.com and run a scan for free. The trial version of PC Health Aid is designed to add a startup entry and launch with Windows when you turn on your computer. PC Health Aid runs in the background and may display pop-up windows that welcome users to buy a commercial license. Also, you may notice "Critical System Condition" alerts in the bottom right corner that are generated by PC Health Aid and claim that you need to buy an activation code if you intend to improve the stability of your OS. The PC health Aid optimizer is promoted to be a trusted and secure software designed to be easy to use and clean your PC.

Pchealthaid.com did not have content prior to February 22nd, 2017. Moreover, Comguard Solutions Ltd. does not appear to have pages on networks like LinkedIn and Bloomberg.com have no record of the company. Trusted software development companies like R-Style Lab, MentorMate, SoftEQ, and Amadeus Consulting have not validated PC Health Aid, and the claims on pchealthaid.com appear to lack proof. If you have installed PC Health Aid by Comguard Solutions Ltd., you might want to hold on to your wallet before you buy a license for the program. Computer experts did not find evidence that PC Health Aid by Comguard Solutions Ltd. can improve the performance of machines and you might want to read the End User License Agreement at pchealthaid.com/eula/ where Comguard Solutions Ltd. says:

'5. No Performance Warranty.
ComGuard specifically disclaims any representation or warranty for the amount of performance increase or utility provided by PCHA. PCHA will not necessarily increase performance or provide a utility benefit on your computer, and ComGuard makes no claim of specific deficiency, defect, or underperformance with respect to your computer. Any claims of performance increases or utility made for PCHA are those of possible or potential improvement or utility, and no representation or warranty is offered that a specific utility or amount of performance increase, if any, will be realized on any particular computer. Each computer is different and the scenarios under which they are used are different, and no claim is made that any one computer or usage scenario shall result in any performance increase or utility benefit from PCHA.

PC users that were interested in buying an activation code for PC Health Aid revealed that the page on the custom page on Safecheckcart.com suggests that one key is priced at 29,95 USD. Imagine their surprise when they were redirected to safecart.com/comguard/.pchealthaid/cart? that says Comguard Limited provides the activation code in exchange for 35.94 USD that you need to pay every month if you want to secure your status as a premium user and access the full suite of features in PC Health Aid. Additionally, users may be suggested to add a program named Disk Tools Plus to their cart and pay 47.88 USD as a monthly fee, which is subtracted from your credit card without the need for your approval. Disk Tools Plus is associated with questionable system optimization services that include Super PC Cleanup, Advanced PC Tuneup and Win Tuneup Pro.

The lack of recognition by other software developers, suspicious pricing model, affiliation with dubious programs, and failure to deliver improved system performance allow experts to classify PC Health Aid as a Potentially Unwanted program (PUP). You should think twice before you run PC Health Aid on your machine and allow a monthly fee to be subtracted from your credit card without your explicit consent.
